    As a proud Irishman this is a brilliant video that's sums up the Famine in just pictures and the song is one of the greatest masterpieces I've ever heard. It's full of joy and promise along with sadness and portrays a sense of nostalgia. It's a perfect song for Irish history.

    Whenever these songs get posted, I sit and listen to them, reminiscing on what I've learned. And they always make me feel heavy, no matter if it's a light tune or a somber requiem. Like I have the responsibility to not repeat the mistakes of the people that were, and to strive to become better, as a person, and make this world a better place. Never stop this series Extra Credits. Thank you.

  • Thomas Chen

    Starts off slow, almost melancholic as if memories of those hard times weigh heavy; and then the tempo picks up, simple at first with a guitar, but slowly accompanied by more instruments that join in. A brief lowering of the tune with these new accompaniments as the song struggles to find a tune to go forward, but eventually it does and it rises and feels invigorated, spurred onwards to new hopes.
