The nice thing about having loaded a bunch of CDs onto my recently acquired iPod is its tendancy to throw up stuff I haven't listened to for a long while.
For example – I rarely get a chance to pull out my Gorky's Zygotic Mynki CD - but the iPod just played Pen Gwag Glas from Barafundle – a great song for the end of the day.
Not just a great song, but how damn good does welsh sound in song. It really is a beautiful language. I always feel slightly amazed that my Gran didn't speak English until her secondary education. She still uses welsh for speaking to her sister. I always recall her lovely comment that of course the bible was a lot better in welsh! I can just picture the wise men sitting about in the middle east…
