Does anyone have the song Tell My Ma (aka I'll Tell My Ma or I'll Tell Me Ma) that they'd send me, specifically the version sung by The Rankin Family? I'd take any version at this point, but it's the Rankins that have stolen my heart. It was on their 1992 album Fare Thee Well Love and the 1995 album North Country, and I want that song SO MUCH but it's not available as am mp3 download on Amazon. Woe is me.

Seriously, listen. I want to teach it to all my friends and family and have a big kitchen party with everyone standing around in a huge circle and singing loudly, clapping our hands and stomping our feet and oh yes, I'm sure there'll be a bodhran or two in there somewhere.

Oh, you are a wizard. PERFECT. I promptly subjected my mother to it five times in a row. (But now she knows it and can sing along with me!)

There are lots of websites that let you convert videos to mp3s!

Like this: http://www.video2mp3.net/

I haven't used that one myself, but I've used another that is apparently down right now.

I would be very happy for them! I'm eager now to see how different groups sound singing it. librarian[dot]mari[at]gmail[dot]com, if it's really no trouble. :)

Is this the song you were asking for that you mentioned the other day? Because yeah, missed this too.

I want to play the bodhran at your kitchen parties. (NEWFOUNDLAND KITCHEN PARTY)
