I never used to think much of this song until:
a) I listened to it in a proper musical recording (please watch this, you'll like it even more than YNWA if you're like me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNxDKLzs0zU . Kenny is actually singing the line about himself ). The line about Hillsborough makes me shed tears.
b) Listening to the original "Fields of Athenry" song which is also beautiful
