loved the most, I didn’t know where any of them came from or understand that they may have been old. Some of them were English, some of them were American, but they held a special place in my heart…I learned about the world through them. There were lots of Irish songs too, and I think actually this is one of the ones I loved the most, and you will laugh at this - I think it's one of the best songs in the entire world - it's Wild Rover. It carries so much depth and shades of emotion of the wayfaring returning wanderer. It's actually a song I sing for sad times as well as good. I think it taps into something deep about us on our journeys and what we leave behind and what we expect of the world and how we treat the world around us, it's thought of as such a pub song. No nay never, fresh fish, and all that, right up your kilt, which is great fun, when you're 11, but at 36 it reveals new truths every time I sing it."
