Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sisters of Mercy (Leonard Cohen)
Subject: RE: leonard cohen sisters of mercy
Russ, I'm the same, I have to be careful when listening to songs/tunes from my past, they're potent indeed! In a low mood a while ago I started choosing "Songs to play at my Funeral" and felt terribly tearful at all the memories they evoked, good and bad. Then I felt jealous; my mourners would have a jolly good time listening to all that, and me not there to participate! I do find Enya very evocative, perhaps because I'm half Scots and half Irish. Celts are often very emotional.
