What strikes me about Sinead O’Connor’s interpretation of “Danny Boy” is the controlled beauty of her voice. I’ve always felt a kinship with her in that we both rebelled against the carefully constructed and imposed morality cages of the Catholic Church – cages that the Church itself never employed to govern its own (im)morality and predatory behavior. I’m so glad that I shedded that institution decades ago, although that is the easy thing to do. Shedding its morality cages, which are internal, is something altogether different, but it can be done! For me it took a bit of a FU attitude and a love at a young age of rock and roll.
