Versa pinte di birra mentre canta deliziosamente

Si chiama John Horgan e lavora al Crossroads pub a Knockavilla, il barista cantante che in questo video intona la canzone «Bright Blue Rose» di Jimmy McCarthy.
I clienti del locale dove lavora Horgan hanno assistito ad un’incantevole esecuzione di una ballata irlandese, intonata dal barista mentre spillava birra e dava il resto dalla cassa.
Il brano «Bright Blue Rose» è stato reso celebre da Christy Moore, un popolare cantante folk, cantautore e chitarrista irlandese. Il video diventato virale in rete ha avuto numerose condivisioni e tra i commenti c’è chi chiede, addirittura, un contratto discografico per John.

Christy Moore – Bright Blue Roses

 

Testo di Bright Blue Rose

I skimmed across black water
Without once submerging
Onto the banks of an urban morning
That hungers the first light
Much, much more than mountains ever do
And she, like a ghost beside me
Goes down with the ease of a dolphin
And emerges unlearned, unshamed, unharmed
For she is the perfect creature, natural in every feature
And I am the geek with the alchemists’ stone
For all of you who must discover
For all who seek to understand
For having left the path of others
You’ll find a very special hand
And it is a holy thing
And it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow
It’s always been, and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
For all of you who must discover
For all who seek to understand
For having left the path of others
You’ll find a very special hand
And it is a holy thing
And it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow
It’s always been, and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
One bright blue rose outlives all those
Two thousand years, and still it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
