I don’t know if you write letters or panic on the phone. I’d like to call you all the same

Lisa Hannigan

Great Girl.

I’ve been wanting to post about her for a while but as you can see I haven’t been doing very much substantial posting for quite a while…. (I actually started this post on May 13, what dedication I have…) I’m gonna try get back into it now. This is a fairly ambitious post  I don’t know if I can get across how great a girl she really is.

And She’s B E A utiful…. and I agree with a not so recent post by Catherine introducing the concept that many women are pretty few are beautiful really….


I fell in love with her voice when she featured on Damien Rice’s album O and then just one song on his second album 9 she features on 9 crimes. I always thought she had a hauntingly beautiful voice and that she definitely had the pure talent to be a standalone solo artist.

She and Damien co-wrote the song Unplayed Piano before they went their separate ways … Lisa describes their split as the best thing that’s ever happened to her…

Her duet Some Surprise with Gary Lightbody featured on Greys Anatomy. It was recorded for The Cake Sale, an album produced to raise money for the charity Oxfam Ireland….


I can’t put into words how much I am in love with her voice, there’s something special about it.

So I waited and waited and finally she released her solo album in late 2008.


Overall it’s a Great album and I think Lisa more than proves her worth as a standalone artist and then some… It’s got all you need upbeat cheerful songs and sombre thought provoking songs and just a whole album of that Inspiring voice…..

I loved the video for her first single Lille you get lost in the story. pop-up books are always fun and the colours make me happy… and obviously the song’s great also…

Then there’s I don’t know equally arty and fun, I LOVE the song probably my favourite from the album but the whole thing is really good… You should definitely check it out for yourself… DO IT!!

Let me know what you think sure…

    A little bit… I’m not obsessed or anything. Just haven’t written anything for quite a while thought I’d inject some enthusiasm into it…

    I can’t plead innocense on this one. I remember when that record came out, her solo debut, and the times gave it 5. And I got all excited about hearing it but for some reason I never checked it out. Maybe I just forgot.

    But I think it’s about time I did after reading that. And yeah. The pretty/beautiful debate is a good one. I think it comes down to how the girl acts. Like Audrey Tautou, she could be in that biker gang in Mad Max and still be pretty but it’s her whole persona that makes her beautiful.
    If that makes any sense.

    Also – Mur’s obsessed!

    I think I’m kinda obsessed as well. She has a very cute and darling element about her. Something like Kaylee from Firefly…
    Seriously, I fell in love with her in the damien rice video “rootless tree” live, filmed in Abby Road. You can find it on youtube.
    Too bad Rice turned out to be such a douche. They sounded good together.

      Wow, that rootless tree video is great!
      True about Damien Rice great music, a little lacking in the personality area!
      Thanks for the comment!
