Carol Blogs. Tracey Tweets. James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser means to take his time about it, aye?
also try these songs: Cnoc na feille, an toll dhub, and especially "every river" -it's J&C all the way. I just love hearing the language spoken. It's adding a lot to my [re]readings. The photos and videos are so amazing I have found myself jealous of Claire, that she gets to live there and I don't. [pouting]
Hey Carol! Interesting music...soothes my mind...it makes me sort of groggy....as if...i want a beer and a shot at 8am. Hows the Starks!! Great to see you at Christmas time! February already..my gosh. Hi to the family! -billy martin
hi carolon youtube searching for the music and came across thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CglGKvutjjonot quite jamie but a redheid and a very cool video imo.(listen for him saying "oxters", i,d never heard the term before reading outlander) and this also (hope you can see it) it,s a 6 part documentary about the battle of culloden.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUc-_e6pdaggoing back now to find more music:-)
me againmusic this time,-john denvers "annies song" is one of my song choices that is j & c ,not scottish i know and an oldie and so simple but the lyrics always send a shiver up my spine.(and sometimes bring a tear to my eye) and this version has stunning sceneryhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3091MHksLM4:-)

thanks traceyjust listened to "my sweet lady" , i hadn,t heard it before or can,t remember it. you could have issued a tissue warning lol or is it just me ??and that is definately a voyager song:-)
Haha--most definitely NOT just you Lesley--it is absolutely a tear-jerker. It's on my Voyager playlist right after the mmmphm-ing part of the reunion... :-)Actually, the song that can make me cry more than anything else is another John Denver song called "Poems, Prayers, and Promises." Give that a listen--and then think about what ended up happening to John Denver (he died in a plane crash, fyi) at the lines "it turns me on to think of growing old." You will be a sobbing mess--trust me...
How bout John Denver's "For Baby" for Jamie and his times with his grandchildren & Willie?And hey, wasn't Flora McD the one who was a bit hot after the Big J at Aunti Jo's place? Grrr.
Nah, I take it back. Just re-listened and I think For Baby would have to be for Jamie's hippie reincarnation. Too flowery for JAMMF, my bad.
I love the Outlander series and music so I love this post. I just thought I would put in a little something as well. Isla Grant is a folk singer from Scotland who sings a song called the Ghosts of Culloden. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2Q4OinyjHsThis is where it can be found, it's very moving.I also think that the song colorblind by the counting crows is a great song for when Claire is leaving Jamie, right before the battle of Culloden. Thanks for all the great links everyone else has put on here, I enjoyed them.
wow, that gives me chills!
Aren't Runrig the greatest? I made a whole playlist for them on YouTube! http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=4150FCD007BB03D3&search_query=a+runrig+collection
