Ceart Go Leor
Finally completed the 'son' of 'Tickety Boo.' An Irish version that stands alone in it's own right. This song was written in response to a suggestion made by Ryan Tubridy on RTE Radio in Ireland. I had sent Tickety Boo to the Irish Eurovision team to see if they wanted to use it, with obvious modifications, since the song is typically British. The Irish Eurovision team had already chosen their candidate but sent my song onto Ryan. He interviewed me on his show and suggested doing an Irish version and that instead of Tickety Boo, he said that in Ireland they would use Ceart Go Leor (Kart Go Lore- phonetically). I eventually wrote some more lyrics suited to an Irish audience and found an amazing talent online in the form of Neil Fitzgibbon and he composed and arranged the music with an Irish feel, but sticking to the original structure / format. The result was an amazing job done by Neil, Ciaran (the vocalist) and others. I'm really happy with the result. I have also been working on another song if I'm able to get it complete. Watch this space.
