More birds and music

In my recent reflection on birds in music, I realised that I had used birds as an image of the rural in my own song 'The Birds' from the first Nobodaddy album:

Oddly, I hadn't remembered this use, as to me the song is primarily about urban alienation - but in exploring that theme I had posited a rural idyll of connection to nature with birds as the embodiment of that. Now living rurally, it seems hugely quaint, but it seemed to work at the time! I actually prefer the version that we recorded with Niamh Cavlan on her album but I can't embed that here - it is on Spotify should you be that way inclined.
