Celtic punk rock band The Rumjacks have released a new lyric video for ‘Goodnight & Make Mends.’ The song is a punk rock mourning song of acceptance. It is the last song on the album.
Reading through a late friend’s poetry, the songwriter recalls all of the times the two friends casually said: “let’s write a song together sometime!” and never got around to it. Using lines of her poetry to form a call and response, the two friends, now separated by death, finally wrote their song together, albeit too late. The sorrowful tone of the uilleann pipes sets the scene for the song which reminisces on memories of drunkenly parading through the Boston snow after closing time.
