danny boy

honestly, i've never liked any folk song very much, but not until i heard Danny's sort of sad, sweet and ... calming.

to me, this song is about a young boy, named (of course) Danny who had to go to war. thus he had to leave whoever it is, mother or girlfriend or a close friend. the persona assumed that she/he will be dead by the time Danny went back home

the melody is just one of the greatest i've ever heard of

and the lyrics are so so so sweet and beautifully arranged to convey the song's message 

i particularly like the version sung by this little guy many many years ago, 

who in recent times had turn into this very fine young man XD
