To be free

Sinéad O'Connor with a beautiful ballad, "A Perfect Indian" off of her 1994 album Universal Mother.

I'm not quite sure what it's about, but the heart and soul shines through. Good music is like that... it's more than technique, more than mechanics, it's about things that are far beyond that, I think.

EDIT: OOPS! Sorry about the video not showing up, for some reason it was set to 10PM, not 1AM!

  1. Beautiful. The flute is haunting.

  2. It is a whistle, not a flute -- you can tell because the person playing it is blowing into it, rather than over it. Just being pedantic, because I get annoyed when I play the Irish whistle and people call me "flute boy" :).

    But I do agree, it is a beautiful song, and the whistle part works very well.
