Royals Gaelic

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 18 July 2014

One of our listeners, Adrian, posted a link to a version of 'Royals' the big hit by New Zealand's singer songwriter Lorde. Nothing surprising; it's a hugely successful song and many artists have covered it. Bruce Springsteen sang an acoustic version during his New Zealand concerts this year, even Weird Al Yankovic has just come out with a parody. But what struck us about Adrian's posting was that this version wasn't in english, but in Gaelic.
