Huh.  Apparently there's another song called "Wake Me Up" they're covering.  By something called an Avicii?  What's that supposed to mean, multiple Avicus?

Anyway, I'm open minded, I'll give it a listen.

.........

Yup. I'll stick with Wham!, thank you kindly.

There were sufficiently pretty girls in white Ts to let me listen all the way through.

Sorry subby, I couldn't hear you over the sound of how awesome Kali thinks both of my towels are.

I'd rather listen to Friday or that stupid Thanksgiving song than Bound2. Utter crap.

Canada took Wham! as a challenge, sent Justin Beiber FTW.

Was I supposed to know what that song was beforehand? I mean it was kinda catchy and all, but no idea what the original version was.
 
2013-11-24 12:34:02 PM  
A couple more hits off the bong, and I'll be able to understand what their singing. Nice looking girls in the crowd.

It hit #1 in 22 countries. Your hipster is showing.

Like others have mentioned, there were a lot of nice looking young ladies in that vid. The music didn't work for me. I like:

But frankly glad to see any Celtic music get attention.

Those 3 chords sounded like a million other songs.
 
2013-11-24 03:29:15 PM  
The title of this song always makes me think of either Landed or Narcolepsy by Ben Folds. Both of which are much better songs.

Before you label people... I hate hipsters with a passion, and yet I have never heard of this song either.

Didn't know the original either. The only "wake me up" I know is ooooooooooold (the one in the first two posts)

And good grief, no wonder people have ADD disorder. Just how many cuts dues a bloody music video need nowadays?

The Language is called Irish. In the Irish language the language is called  Gaeilge.It is like the german language which is called German in the English language and Deutsch in the german language.

Usually when you say Gaelic you mean  Scottish Gaelic, to distinguish it from the Scots language (or Lowland Scots).Scottish Gaelic is closely related to Irish, but not the same - Like dutch and german perhaps.

Wouldn't it be more hipster to say I heard it before anybody else? If anything it's my lazy that's showing. I'm not better than anybody for not being up on European Chart Toppers, I just don't care.

The name Dutch is an appellation used by English-speakers for the language called Nederlands. Not to be confused for its close cousins Plattdeutsche, Afrikaans, and Belgisch-Nederlands.

Pretty girls are God's way of compensating Ireland for, well, everything else.

Same here. Whatever the original is, it's obscure.

/slight Threadjack, yet related

This Farker is going to Ireland for his first time ever, for over a week from December 23 and returning January 3.
Starting and ending in Dublin, but circumnavigating most of southern Ireland for a week.
We are renting a car for the trip.
Any genuine advice?

Jameson Distillery in Dublin, Rock of Cashel, Co. Tipperary, and Dingle for starters

Dingle Peninsula... if you make it as far as Galway: Cliffs of Moher and Connemara both have bus tours from there. Cork is a short trip to the Blarney Castle as well which is a nice site to see.

Dingle Peninsula, Galway, and Cliffs of Moher were already on our radar, ... will add the others for consideration.

Thank you for yours.

My towel is sitting right next to me. The only thing i've ever actually gotten for free from the net.

I'd personally love to see the Giant's Causeway, mostly because that rock formation fascinates me.... especially if you can also see it from the Scotland side as well
