In one of his videos on FB Mike said that he fragmented the original chant (on the original Ommadawn Part 1) and he came up with a new chant. Well, here's what the new chant says. It's just a first attempt, maybe has anyone here got better ideas? ;)

Far no and Ommadawn no
And Ommadawn right now
And Ommadawn right now

At least one sentence makes more sense than anything in the original. :D What do you think? [Once again: it's just a first attempt!]

My listening to, and analysis, of Chant No. 2 will eventually follow; but for now, all I'm thinking is what a very pleasant delight to see you back on the boards, Ugo!  I said as much yesterday, but I think I replied to the duplicate post while Korgscrew was deleting it! :O

Aaaargh! I'm going to be paranoid about that now ;)

Well, the original lyrics are not in English, so the new ones aren't either. Here's the translation:

Hater's gonna hate.
Shake it off.
Shake it off.
Shake it off.

Hater's gonna hate.
Shake it off.
Shake it off.
Shake it off.

;)

I've been away from the boards because I've been quite active on Facebook lately. I discovered RtO through Facebook, and although I haven't been following Mike for quinte some time (I don't own the Discovery reissue, just to mention one), I like this new record an awful lot. I shall post a review soon. :)

Apart from this, I wrote what the chant sounds like, not what the chant is. I know it's not supposed to make sense either, because it's fragments from the original, but as I don't know any Gaelic, I just wrote what the fragments sound like in English. :) But, re-reading it just now, I definitely feel like saying that "And Ommadawn right now" makes sense for what the album is supposed to represent. :cool:

It's actually part of the last bit of the "lyrics" from Ommadawn Part One, reversed. It's heavily edited though, it's not just reversed, there are two distinct bits entangled (bold parts):

Ab yul ann idyad awt
En yab na log a toc na awd
Taw may on omma dawn ekyowl
Omma dawn ekyowl
