I don't know too much about her, but I saw the movie "Veronica Guerin" the other day, and Sinead sings two gorgeous songs on the soundtrack. If you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it. Cate Blanchett stars as Veronica Guerin, a reporter for a Dublin newspaper who crusades against drug dealers and corruption. It would be worth it just to hear Sinead sing, but it's also a damn good movie. I chose journalism as a career because of people like Veronica Guerin. After seeing this movie, I felt for one glorious moment that I hadn't wasted my entire life by risking it to tell the truth. <p></p><i></i>

I'll confess to being a big Sinead O'Connor fan, for a lot of reasons, but in no small way because she has the courage to sing about sadistic abuse. I don't know her full history, but I understand that she identifies her (now deceased) mother as her primary abuser.<br><br>Other songs that are suggestive of RA:<br><br>THREE BABIES <br><br>Each of these <br>My three babies <br>I will carry with me <br>For myself <br>I ask no one else will be <br>Mother to these three <br>And of course <br>I'm like a wild horse <br>But there's no other way I could be <br>Water and feed <br>Are not tools that I need <br>For the thing that I've chosen to be <br>In my soul <br>My blood and my bones <br>I have wrapped your cold bodies around me <br>The face on you <br>The smell of you <br>Will always be with me <br>Each of these <br>My three babies <br>I was not willing to leave <br>Though I tried <br>I blasphemed and denied <br>I know they will be returned to me <br>Each of these <br>My babies <br>Have brought you closer to me <br>No longer mad like a horse <br>I'm still wild but not lost <br>From the thing that I've chosen to be <br>And it's `cause you've thrilled me <br>Silenced me <br>Stilled me <br>Proved things I never believed <br>The face on you <br>The smell of you <br>Will always be with me <br>Each of these <br>My three babies <br>I will carry with me <br>For myself <br>I ask no one else will be <br>Mother to these three <br><br>Red Football <br><br>I'm not no red football <br>To be kicked around the garden <br>No no I'm a red christmas-tree ball <br>And I'm fragile <br>I'm not no animal <br>Though I am to you <br>I'm not no crocodile <br>Like the one in Dublin Zoo <br>Who lived in a cage <br>the length and breadth of his body <br>When a window which people would look through <br>And throw coins on his back to taunt him <br>'though he couldn't move <br>Even if he wanted to <br>I'm not no animal in the zoo <br>I'm not no whipping boy for you <br>You may not treat me like you do <br>I'm not no animal in the zoo <br>My skin is not a football for you <br>My head is not a football for you <br>My body's not a football for you <br>My womb is not a football for you <br>I'm not no animal in the zoo <br>This animal will jump up and eat you <br>I'm not no animal in the zoo <br>And I've every intention <br>Of leaping up and getting you <br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Sinead O'Connor is very powerful

Postby DrDebugDU » Tue Sep 27, 2005 8:32 pm

If you can get it, try to get "I do not want what I haven't got". Sinead is extremely strong and might take some getting used. Especially the last song on the album which is also "I do not want what I haven't got" is sung very slow and extremely intense, but once you are used to her you'll notice that she healing powers.<br><br>Her work is often miscategorized and she has been ridiculed for going into the priesthood and for some of her statements, but she is a very good lady and she is not a fake either, but mneans what she says.<br><br>Her lifestory is a story of rape, of intense abuse and in the middle of it all she has healed herself and once you can sense her, you'll understand that she is a healer.<br><br>One of the most powerful songs I have from her Silent Night. It's like an angel singing to it. All the suffering, all the pain will disappear through her voice. <p></p><i></i>

Interesting. I never paid her much mind either, but maybe there's more than meets the eye. I always thought she was a bit self-indulgent. She certainly is different! <p></p><i></i>

Sinead has had the guts to be traumatised in public - to act out, be distressed, make mistakes. <br><br>Get her first album from 1987, before she was famous, when she was a teenaged tear-away. She sings about hiding in the grass trying to keep warm, the rumours about people "dancing in rings", and so on. There's something pretty bad going on there. <p></p><i></i>

Very strange. She is writing a new album. It's a raggae album and it'll be called <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Throw Down Your Arms</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> and - here it comes - it will be released October 4th, 2005.

SLAD- those may be Marleys lyrics but they are actually the words <br>of HIM Haile Selassie I adapted from his speech to the UN October 4, 1963 <br><br>as for Sly...she couldn't be in better company<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://slyrob.3va.net/img/petetosh.jpg">slyrob.3va.net/img/petetosh.jpg</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>Drummer Lowell 'Sly' Dunbar (getting his nick Sly from listening to Sly Stone) and bassplayer Robert Shakespeare meet in the mid seventies. Dunbar already had quite a reputation as a drummer. He had played on several Jamaican hit records, a.o. Double Barrel by organist Ansell Collins. His rhythmic innovations to reggae drumming were becoming a trade mark for Channel One when he got acquainted with Aston 'familyman' Barrett's youthful protege bassplayer Robbie Shakespeare. Shakespear had already done a good deal of studio work, like 'Stir it up' from Bob Marley and some stuff with the Aggrovators. Sly was playing at a club called Tit for Tat and Robbie was up the street at Evil People. They heard each other playing on their breaks, and they liked what they heard. It didn't take very long for them to decide to form a rhythmic drum-'n-bass partnership, and Sly & Robbie was a fact. In Jamaica they released several albums with the Revolutionaires, some of which were later released in Europe and the USA.<br><br>Their first major project was providing backing for the late singer/songwriter Peter Tosh in his backing band Word Sound and Power. In this period they scored their first major worldwide nr 1 hitsingle with Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger: (Keep on walking) Don't Look Back. They recorded five albums with Peter Tosh: Equal Rights, Legalize it, Bush Docor, Mystic Man and Wanted Dread and Alive. While on a world tour with Peter, they lived on bread and water to save money to be able to start their own record label: TAXI Productions. <br><br><br> Another artist with whom they've been recording is Grace Jones. Sly & Robbie played on three albums. Everybody knows songs like 'I've seen that face before (libertango)' and 'Pull up to the Bumper'. The work with Grace Jones was the start of a heap international artists wanting Sly & Robbie to produce and/or provide the drum 'n bass backing for their songs and albums. Joe Cocker, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, Ian Dury, Herbie Hancock, Maxi Priest, Cindy Lauper, Barry Reynolds, Carly Simon... In reggae they backed and produced a talented new singer, Ini Kamoze, who's first album was a massive hit among the reggae audience. <br><br><br><br>In 1976, Bob Marley interpolated words from Haile Selassie the First's legendary 1963 U.N. peace speech into his famous song War. Below is the text of the Speech:<br><br>"Last May, in Addis Ababa there was convened a meeting of the Heads of African States and Governments. In three days, the thirty-two nations represented at that Conference demonstrated to the world that when the will and the determination exist, nations and peoples of diverse backgrounds can and will work together in unity for the achievement of common goals and the assurance of that equality and brotherhood which we desire. Although our position vis-a-vis the power-blocs is identified with the policy of non-alignment, our past history testifies to the fact that we have always endeavored to cooperate with all nations, without exception. Thus, one of the fundamental principles we have agreed upon at the Addis Ababa Summit Conference gives expression to our fundamental desire to live in harmony and cooperation with all States. On the question of racial discrimination, the Addis Ababa Conference taught, to those who will learn, this lesson: That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned; that until there are no longer any first class and second class citizens of any nation; that until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance that the color of his eyes; that until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all, without regard to race - - until that day, the dreams of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained. And also, that until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding, tolerance and good-will; until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men as they are in Heaven - - until that day the African continent will not know peace. We Africans will fight, if necessary and we know that we shall win, as we are confident in the victory of good over evil. The United Nations has done much, both directly and indirectly, to speed the disappearance of discrimination and oppression from the earth. Without the opportunity to focus world opinion on Africa and Asia which this Organization provides, the goal might, for many, still lie ahead, and the struggle would have taken far longer. For this we are truly grateful.- - H.I.M.

Re: Sinead O'Connor sings with Massive Attack

i've got several of her records and they are great. she is really passionate. i recommend the album 'universal mother'. she had just had a baby before recording it i believe. the song "my darling child", which i have to believe is her singing to her new son, is just about the most beautiful thing you'll ever hear. i've never had kids and don't plan on having them anytime soon, but this song has made me cry. <p></p><i></i>
