Beautiful Nothern Irish anthem "Londonderry Aire", also known as "Danny Boy". Performed with Celtic harp and tin whistle. The song has been interpreted by some listeners as a message from a parent to a son going off to war or leaving as part of the Irish diaspora. Some interpret it differently,[who?] such a dying father speaking to his leaving Danny. The phrase, "the pipes, the pipes are calling", in this interpretation, could refer to the traditional funeral instrument. The song is widely considered an Irish anthem. "Danny Boy" is considered by many Irish Americans and Irish Canadians to be their unofficial signature song.
