sinead o’connor returns with theology

sinead o’connor returns with theology



good evening! let’s just go ahead and get paris hilton out of the way – i watched her interview (read the entire transcript) whatever – i’m really done thinking about her – it has been building to a crescendo – i even thought i would ‘live’ blog her time with larry king but who really cares! like i’ve said before talk is great but let’s see some action ms. hilton! gosh – i don’t think i can bear nicole richie possibly going to jail – we seriously need a break from jail drama! (oh btw – she did lie about taking drugs…maybe she didn’t take ’em but she smoked ’em!)



anyways onto something much more interesting – i love sinead o’connor (join her on myspace) she has always been one of my favorites on the music scene – her now legendary incident on SNL (ripping up the picture of the pope) was a defining ‘pop culture’ moment – i’ll never forget seeing it! she has balls and i love that about her! plus let’s not forget about her incredibly beautiful & haunting voice – it’s unmatched! (she was featured on my ‘monday .mp3’ column last year!)



ms. o’connor is back with an ambitious double album entitled theology – the first disc contains the stripped down ‘dublin sessions’ – the second disc compromises of the ‘london sessions’ – basically the same songs recorded with a lot more musicians! she recently played here in los angeles – i could kick myself for missing the intimate show! the album is slanted towards the spiritual side (hence the album’s title) and although i have little time for religion (it’s not my style – just be a good person and call it a day – although the topic of religion fascinates me) after hearing a few clips – i was totally sold on listening to something peaceful & relaxing – she even covers one of the best tracks ever – i don’t know how to love him from my favorite musical jesus christ superstar!



below are a few audio clips and a video of one of ms. o’connor’s recent performances (plus some pics including one of her at a NYC album signing appearance) if you know popbytes personally you know i often need something to calm myself down & wash the worries away – listening to sinead does the trick (i’m so ready to pick up my very own therapy buddy! oh yes…everything is going to be alright!) popbytes over & out for tonight – xxoo!

» something beautiful (jeremiah) | if i had a vineyard | i don’t know how to love him






theology is an attempt to create a place of peace in a time of war. it is my own personal response to what has taken and is affecting everyone around the world since and including september 11, 2001. i want to be very clear – there is no message. no preaching. nothing deep and meaningful the artist wants to say, nothing trouble making. i simply wanted to make a beautiful thing, out of something beautiful, which inspires me.
