George Donaldson's The World In My Mind Cd Review | Moments With Mercy

Hey, y'all!

It's no secretly to (literally) anyone, how much of a fan I am of George Donaldson.  Knowing this, you can imagine how completely thrilled I was to receive a copy of one of his cds in the mail- The World In My Mind.  From the very first song to the very last, this cd is full of wonderful music. But... like usual, I'm getting ahead of myself :) Let me share the track list and then I'll share my top three favorite songs on the cd.



01. THE WORLD IN MY MIND
02. TANGLED UP PUPPET
03. THE ANNIE JANE
04. GLENCOE
05. TONY’S SYMPHONY
06. THE GALWAY SHAWL
07. BELLE OF LIBERTY
08. THE PARTING GLASS
09. DREAMS OF BROADWAY
10. COMMUNE
11. TILL THEN

A few of my favorites-

The World In My Mind - This is the very first song on the album and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. Watch below as George explains the song in his own words and shares it with us all...



Tangled Up Puppet- This is a song from a fathers perspective of his relationship with his daughter as she grows from a young babe to a grown young woman.  A very sweet and touching song that may bring a tear or two!

The Parting Glass- Partings are never easy, and this song seems to encapture all of that.  To me, this song will always be associated with George... I've heard many other versions, but it never fails to make me think of George and the emotion he puts into it.  If you've never heard it go give it a listen!

Well I specifically mentioned my three favorites on this project (didn't want to bore you all listing reasons for each and every one, haha) there is not a song on this cd that I do not like.  George Donaldson had this incredible gift of pouring his heart and all into every single song and lyric he sang, and this album really showcases that.  If you have yet to add The World In My Mind to your collection. make sure to head over to Celtic Thunder's Website and grab yourself a copy. You will not regret it!!
