Foo Fighters – Something From Nothing [Rock]

It’s the Foo Fighters, what more needs to be said. Rebel Voice feels that this track will be best enjoyed wearing dirty denims and work boots but with no top as you stand at the garden fence drinking tins of beer and staring quietly at your librarian neighbours. Scratch your belly button occasionally, really get […]

The Sun Is Burning – Luke Kelly (Ian Campbell Song)

This haunting song was composed and written by Scottish folk singer, Ian Campbell, and first released in 1963 but made famous by Simon and Garfunkel, who included it on their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., one year later. It tells of the horrors of a nuclear blast and was written at a time when the […]

Carrickfergus – Loudon Wainwright III (Irish Folk)

Carrickfergus (Gaelic for The Rock of Fergus) is a coastal town in the Occupied Six Counties of Ireland. The origins of this particular song are subject to much speculation, but the melody is believed to be from a Gaelic song titled, “Do Bhí Bean Uasal” (There was a Noble Woman) which has been attributed to the […]

Altan – Maggie’s Pancakes (Irish Traditional)

Here’s a hit from the maestros of Irish music, Altan, from beautiful Tír Chonaill. This version of Maggie’s Pancakes is sure to get your feet tapping, probably enough to wear out the soles on your shoes. Altan are an Irish institution still encouraging audiences to kick up their heels after decades of success. Their longevity […]

Johnny Cash – One (Pop Cover)

Johnny Cash was one of the kings in the world of music. He had his own songs, but was as well known for his versions of those composed and made famous by others. One of those was the U2 song, One. Although Rebel Voice is no fan of the Dublin quartet, there is no denying […]

Fire Inc – Nowhere Fast (Streets Of Fire Soundtrack)

Streets Of Fire was released in 1984 as a ‘rock opera’ but was really a rollicking, retro jaunt into an age that never existed. It’s steampunk without the steam and with bikers as punks. It had a great cast including Diane Lane and… nope… sorry… can’t get past Diane Lane, she might have starred in […]

G Tom Mac – Cry Little Sister (The Lost Boys Soundtrack)

Gerard Thomas McMahon was born in England but moved to the US when he was 11-years-old, going on to become one of the best known composers for the Entertainment Industry throughout the eighties and nineties. He has also went by the titles, Gerard McMann, G Tom Mac and recently Gerard MacMahon. MacMahon specialises in composing […]

David Bowie – Starman (Glam Rock)

David Bowie was one-of-a-kind. His visionary music led multitudes of idealistic young men and women into the music industry. His fearless expression of emotion and lyrical endeavour raised the standard for how hits should be presented. Starman is a great example of just how revolutionary he was. This massive hit is quirky, poignant and catchy. […]

Van Morrison – It’s all Over Now (Baby Blue) – (Blues)

George Ivan Morrison was born in Belfast in 1945. He fairly old right now, but still performing. Hope he’s OK. His back catalogue is legendary (back might be giving him jiff) but few have ever successfully covered his work. Perhaps that’s a statement upon just how good his own performances have been. Here we have […]
