This week’s workout song is Ashley MacIsaac – Sleepy Maggie. I think it’s in Gaelic, that or some variation of Pig Latin. Pig Gaelic? It’s a chirpy language, anyway, so maybe Chipmunk Latin? I’m always a little paranoid about songs in foreign languages because you never know what they’re about. I really dig this song, but she could be singing about putting sugar in my gas tank or kinky sex acts for all I know. Maybe even kinky sex acts that involve putting sugar in my gas tank.
As the website I found the MP3 on says, this song features “fiddling and Gaelic vocals vs. trip-hop. Could almost come across as cheesy if it didn’t work so darn well.” I don’t think I can sum it up better than that.
P.S. Does anyone enjoy these links? If no one cares, I’ll stop posting them. Don’t want to bore you all.
P.P.S. M has kindly informed me that Ashley MacIsaac is a man. Damn these boys with girls’ names! I guess he’s obviously not the one singing either.
