This batch of songs for me is about memory. Bringing back memories of the time I spent in Uist and of learning these songs. Mhurchaidh bhig is one of the first Gaelic songs I remembered using the meanings of the words rather than just the sounds, I've always been proud of that and that I could remember it as the words make very little sense. Moladh Uibhist is another one that took some remembering with long verses. I loved this song from the first time I heard it but it took me a long time to be able to remember the whole thing. Nuar a Bha Mi Og is all about memory and also has long verses, I hope to learn a few more of them soon. The other two songs fall into the category of songs that I don't remember not knowing.
