Air for a Wise Celtic Fool :: Killian Donnelly, Gigging 4 Good, October 2012

  • The Confrontation
  • Killian Donnelly and Hans Peter Janssens

On the heels of that recent re-appreciation of the Donnelly/Lewis Confrontation of Awesome, here is a slightly different take; obviously Hans Peter Janssens is quite a different Javert, but Killian’s Valjean is calmer, more lyrical—listen to that gorgeous before you say another word, Javert—less angry and more sure of himself, but still absolutely soaring on the back-and-forth and, even after my race getting a bit caught in his throat, still nailing a killer (no pun intended) is not yet run. Different, but still pretty damn glorious.

David Tennant and Catherine Tate trying to sing John Barrowman's new album
  • David:Can't take my eyes off of youuuu
  • David and Catherine:Dada dada da da da da da
  • Catherine:We don't need John Barrowman!
  • David:No! 'You'll Think Of Me', 'I Made It Through The Rain'?
  • Catherine:That's a Barry Manilow song!
  • David:Give us a blast.
  • Catherine:I made it throuuugh the rain, I kept myself protected- he had an umbrella, that's all that was! Don't boast about that!
  • David and Catherine:You don't have to say you love me-
  • Catherine:Just be good in bed.... or something.

Bucky Barnes – Remember Who You Are

01. Nine Inch Nails – Burn

Well I don’t believe in your institutions / I did what you wanted me to / I’m like the cancer in your system / I’ve got a little surprise for you / Something inside of me / Has opened up its eyes / Why did you put it there? / Did you not realise?

02. Within Temptation – What Have You Done?

I know I’d better stop trying / You know that there’s no denying / I won’t show mercy on you now / I know I should stop believing / I know that there’s no retrieving / It’s over now / What have you done?

03. My Chemical Romance – Disenchanted

Well I was there on the day / They sold the cause for the queen / And when the lights all went out / We watched our lives on the screen / I hate the ending myself / But it started with an alright scene … It was a lie when they smiled and said / You won’t feel a thing

04. God Is an Astronaut – All is Violent, All is Bright


05. Metric – Help, I’m Alive (acoustic)

I tremble / They’re gonna eat me alive / If I stumble / They’re gonna eat me alive … If you’re still alive / My regrets are few / If my life is mine / What shouldn’t I do?

06. The Mountain Goats – Damn These Vampires

Scream when captured / Arch your back / Let this whole town / Hear your knuckles crack … Crawl ‘til dawn / On my hands and knees / God damn these vampires / For what they’ve done to me

07. Mumford & Sons – Unfinished Business

I broke down in horror at you standing there …. But feeling my skin, it was cold to the touch / You whispered, “Where are you?” / I questioned your doubt / But soon realised, you were talking to God now / But you have blood on your hands / And I know it’s mine / I just need more time

08. The Avett Brothers – Tear Down the House

Tear down the house that I grew up in / I’ll never be the same again / Take everything I used to own / And burn it in a pile

09. Bloc Party – Two More Years

They say: ‘Be brave, there’s a right way and a wrong way’ / This pain won’t last forever / This pain won’t last forever

*Bonus: Lifehouse – Breathing (Bucky/Natasha)*

I’m finding my way back to sanity again / Though I don’t really know what I’m gonna do when I get there / I take a breath and hold on tight / Spin around one more time / And gracefully fall back to the arms of grace
