re: the non-english lyrics, look what someone has added to the web!

Apologies for the formatting. Some goon thought Putting This In Title Case was a good idea, but they were wrong.

Don’t Think You Can’t See Me
Don’t Argue Amongst Yourselves
Because Of The Loss Of Me
I’m Sitting Amongst Yourselves
Don’t Think You Can’t See Me
Don’t Argue Amongst Yourselves
Because Of The Loss Of Me
I Haven’t Gone Anywhere
But Out Of My Body
Reach Out And You’ll Touch Me
Make Effort To Speak To Me
Call Out And You’ll Hear Me
Be Happy For Me

Ag Feitheamh An Scéal/Waiting For The Story
Níl Aon Airgead I Mo Phóca Innui/There Is No Money In My Pocket Today
I Mo Phóca Innui/In My Pocket Today
I Mo Phóca Innui/In My Pocket Today

I have no idea why this works (African and Celtic merging) but somehow it does. Add into it Sinead O'Connor's vocals and it is better than the sum of its parts.  I think I might even give it a rare rating of 9 from me :)

Indeed. The loss of a loved band mate, or any loved one, causes much sadness. These lyrics help lift we living. Thank heaven for that.

Their single best song. Love the build up.

One of AC's best tracks, where it all properly comes together, IMHO. And of course anything with SOC on is always a pleasure. She picks the BEST artists to collaborate with...

Ah, ACSS...sad subject matter of this particular song notwithstanding, they always make me want to spin around the room- in a  good way.

I don't know if it's one of their best or not.  I just know I was listening just now on my smartphone and had to come log-onto my PC so I could change my rating of this song:  9 => 10  May not be their best, but I don't care, a 10 is a 10.

I'm not sure I agree with you or not, but in any case, so what?

Exactly! I was just noticing that when I saw your comment. Perfectly nuanced.

Just bumped up my rating. Really hits my mood today.

Glad I clicked in to read the comments, I was guessing your woman might be Mary Black. I agree with someone down there that the male voice is oddly cheesy but I like the synthsized pipes near the end. Perhaps the "Eh, fook'n hell" thing isn't by accident? Who knows.
 

Are you sure the pipes are synthesized?

Powerful song.  Maybe I still like it so much because I heard about the meaning behind the song when I first heard it.  It is a tribute to their band mate who died suddenly.  The lyrics are from his perspective, from beyond.  They were grieving at the time they wrote this song.
 
Thanks for that - I had no idea this was the case. It does add another poignant dimension to the song, right enough.

Yer man's singing in Irish Gaelic, but I can't find the Irish lyrics on a quick search. Oh, and yer woman's Sinead O'Connor. I've rated ACSS very highly as a fine 'world music' experiment kicked off by Peter Gabriel, and would love to see them live before they dissolve themselves as I believe they're intending to do this year. 9 from the Nottingham jury.

 
There's also some lyrics in Malinke.  Equally impossible to find.  {#Frown}
