When You Say Nothing At All

This song has been on repeat in my head for weeks. And because it's only three chords, it manages to monopolize my fingers every time I sit at the piano. But it would be better on the guitar. So I shall learn. And I'll show up at some open mike night somewhere and play those three chords for a tiny crowd of strangers.

I know the song is 20 years old and has been covered by everyone (or at least three artists). But I like this version. I love that Ronan Keating's Irish accent doesn't disappear when he sings. Which I can't mimic. Maybe I should just work on my Allison Krauss impression.

And yes, Ronan is from the UK boy band Boyzone. Don't judge. I like my boy-banders European, okay?
