No, we can't go wrong with the Stones, the Allmans, etc.  Except with those cuts that former commercial radio listeners have each been forced to hear about 7,499 times.

I call that progress. As for me, at least, this IS a classic deep cut, in large part because it's positive and upbeat, it's fun open road driving music, and it's not Rocket Piano Man's Bennie Jet Space Oddity Stairway to Heaven.  {#Yes}
 
8 --> 9

Yes Irish melodies combined with African rhythms - a winning combination.

Matching your bump to 9!

Thought that was Annie Lennox singing when it was infact Sinead, and now guessing that's the Edge from U2 strumming away so probably wrong there as well. Enjoying this alot.

Sinéad? Heaven forbid.

Afro Celt Sound System are a great band. All their albums are recommended.
great driving music but watch your speed!
Leprechaun dancing
Yeah, a definite pavement pounder. 8 to 9
This song is perfect for when Bill needs to take an extended bathroom break.
Best damn soprano recorder jam in any pop song!
(for what that's worth)

What he said. 
This sounds like the kind of music commissioned to be performed during the Voting at the Eurovision Song Contest.

This is terrible.  Have heard enough Celtic to last a lifetime on RP.  Please stop.  You can't go wrong with Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers,  Joe Walsh, Beatles, Led, Etc...  PSD works only so much.  Thankfully, we have other options  — Classic Deep Cuts.

I just bumped by 7 to an 8, this tune really starts cranking in the 2nd half of the 10+mins - and my thoughts are the track name "Mojave" is kinda funny cuz I'm thinking Arctic (i.e. it sounds like the Titanic music to me.)

Long Live RP!

I literally caught myself doing this   {#Dancingbanana} listening to this song.

Unfamiliar feeling, but I am here.
Almost pleasant to listen to. Can hear the Celt but can't tell if he has an Afro

Mojave? 10:36 minutes? 6.8 rating? Confused!
repetitive but growing on me. Moved from 4 to 6.

I'm thinking that, along with programming, and other such activities, about the only thing this track is good for ... or maybe trippin' on acid.
But 10 minutes of droning is too much for anything else. Thankful for PSD.

I used to really dig this kind of stuff in the 90's, I thought it was cool.
Little did I know how thin it would sound this many years later. Meh. 
Apparently there are many people posting comments here who love to see their complaining demeanor in writing. These same people are as untasteful as they say this song is.

I comfort myself with the thought that this synthetic fusion tosh will be soon be forgotten about forever.
Yup, still a 1.
Monotony defined!
mo·not·o·ny
məˈnätn-ē/
noun
 
lack of variety and interest; tedious repetition and routine.

Endless monotony even worse! Make it stop!
Repetitive. A little corny. Good theme music for the Hobbits to have a cinema dance off with the Ewoks. 
But I like it anyway. Thom Yorke isn't droning and Arcade Fire isn't drowning in its robodrumming.

Listen to this while on a road trip through the southern California desert and see if it isn't all clear to you then....
Enough already. Make it stop.
Even Enya hates it.
Not for me at all, find it really boring
 I like these guys when I first heard them on RP, now not so much so.
 everything sounds a bit the same.

 played alot here.

Great tunes in this.  Anyone know where I can find it?

Saw these guys perform this infront of a group of unbelievers (Thomas Covenant take note!) and they converted them by the middle of this track.

A seething mass of humanity swaying, baying, hooting, all having a great time. Hypnotised.

A great performance.


Song started off as a "4" but steadily increased to a "6," ending up at solid "7"...thanks again Bill for playing such a wide range of tunes

Agreed. Riverdance Trance?
Sorry dont like this kind of music - 2
dance meets titanic. 
Good build up :)
Talk about creativity! They got one good sound concept at the beginning and they kept on the same niche for one thousand titles. No surprise to be expected from these guys, this has become lift music (i.e. not lifting-). The good thing is if you buy one title for $0.99 on i-tunes and you get all of them for your money.

So any album or track featuring tin whistle, flute, ullean pipes, and a heavy does of Ireland reminds you of Titanic.

Hope to goodness Bill never plays anything from Riverdance.

 
Not a bad tune to wake up too {#Bananajam}










































































































































Too much Titanic in this song

Don't know.  Let's listen with an open mind, and find out.
High on my "must see live" list.
This would be a great driving across a long, boring state song. Like west Texas or Wyoming...
Best heard live in a de-sanctified church late at night.

Most of the musicians are Irish, and much of the singing on other Afro Celt songs is in Irish Gaelic. A bheil e ceilteach gu leòr airson thusa? Is that Celtic enough for you?

The band is typically modern Celtic, a multicultural fusion of sounds and influences. The Celtic world moves with the times, as well as keeping its traditions alive, and modern Celtic music reflects that, and the multicultural reality of Celtic nations. Examples of such groups include (to name only a few) the Peatbog Faeries, Shooglenifty, and Salsa Celtica. A wikipedia entry on Celtic Fusion might be a help to you in understanding modern Celtic music.

 

Thanks for the info Fred. This tune speaks to my Irish ancestral roots.

It is fascinating that so much great creative work comes out of Ireland. Fewer people there than then my humble burg. Must be something in the water (or beer, perhaps).


I like it.

Too much Riverdance
Everyone in my multitude of places of worship for all creeds and denominations be dancing to this.... {#Bananapiano}
My wife and I were married in CO at a mountain lake in 2010. On the drive from Denver, this was the CD we had on to calm Inta's nerves and because we love it, of course. 


Music sure can take you back to where you were, how you felt, etc.


   


  
One listen away from an 8, and pretty much two from a 9 :-D

AFRO Celt.... A beautiful mix of rhythms. Nothing traditional about it! 
Does this song ever bloody end!

Umm, the name of the band is AFRO Celt Sound System  Which, to my mind, is a hybrid. Here, they complement each other rather nicely. I love this piece, in fact. And loathe iTunes for not having the good sense to offer it. Maybe Youssou N'Dor would like it. No one hollers that Peter Gabriel blended his native English music with African rhythms.

I guess I missed the part about it being traditional Celtic music. Last time I checked it was AFRO mixed with CELT.

I can't see anyone thinking thatt combining bad celtic music with bad electronic music is a good idea, but then you wouldn't think the result would be this poor either. It's almost epic how bad this is.
Once I liked, but everything in there collection is the same
Awesome corporate video music. Doesn't insult, yet sounds aspirational and dramatic. Perfect for selling shlock.
This song always raises my spirits when I hear it.
And yet, the most recent of the three Acoustic Alchemy selections in Bill's library was played in 2006. Go figure…
I feel like I just stepped into a candle store.
Ron Burgundy approves.
Yee haw!  It's danin' time!

From the sardonic Leonard Cohen to shimmering Afro Celt. The PSD is like my own DJ.  
Mojave is not on iTunes. Which is not good for my DJ when he's not working at RP. 
Anyway, I don't imagine the Mojave when I hear this, but so what? (Maybe Irish horse riders in Morocco.) At least it's not the (great but sometimes too self-serious) Leonard Cohen stewing in his sauce. 
 
Probably wouldn't be something I'd keep on my iPod but you just gotta love this one for the feel-good value. Very nice
