Let's Play a Game.

"And there was the court assembled in all..." That's familiar. That must be from "The Bonny Swans." The song does have a cute-sounding title, although the song itself is not. 

How about these quotes?

"...Ride on, through the night ride on." 

"The veil concealed my eyes, while within lay quiet as the dead..."

"My heart is full when you are by my side."

"Of thundering hooves and beating wings/In the clouds above..."

"The veil concealed my eyes, while within lay quiet as the dead..."

Dark night of the soul, I LOVE this song.  I would love for her to surprise us with this at one of her concerts

"My heart is full when you are by my side."

Caravanserai, another great song.

HERES ONE FOR YOU:

"Dreams we hold in the palm of our hands'

Never-ending road :-)

Guess who's baaaaaack?! 

I didn't realise 'til just now how much I missed this game, easy as it is. Loreenya, your quotes are from All Souls Night and The Gates of Istanbul, respectively.

My latest contribution to this game comes from a song that is very special to me right now...ask me why when you provide the answer!

"...dreams, leaning softly..."

Thanks kcallaghan! That'd be She Moved through the Fair, of course.

I heard an interesting theory about that song the other day. I was talking to a guy who says that he interprets it that the "she" in the song was actually murdered by her lover (the singer)...which means that the last stanza is actually her coming back to haunt him! Adds a bit of a creepy twist. Has anybody else heard this theory before?

Next line. I'll give you a hint: it's a traditional song, that Loreena's recorded, but this is from a verse that she omitted (because you're all too knowledgeable to be challenged by anything she has sung )...

"...as she whirled with the lads of the town"

I'm going with Star of the County Down!  It's the rhyme that gives it away.  And if I wasn't about to do the same thing, I would say that was pretty sneaky!   

Here's mine (again, it's an omitted line from an existing piece she recorded) :  "Sometimes a troop of damsels glad,
An abbot on an ambling pad..."

good luck!

Sounds like The Lady of Shalott by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Yes!  Great job!  Now, if you aren't already trying to do so, you can think of a line from one of her songs (or a poem she's set to music) and see if someone else can guess.  At this point, it's a little easier said than done--we've had to throw quite a few curveballs at one another!  

Good luck!
