#15 of 2015

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#15 in our favorite songs of 2015 is "Ffôl" by Ani Glass. To see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it earlier this year, please click on the song title.


Ani Glass

Now you probably noticed that song title is not in English. That's right! The song is sung in Welsh, as Ani is from Wales! (Cyfieithu yn Gymraeg isod.) "Ffôl" translates to "foolish," and Ani says the song "deals with people's general tendency to complain about things without doing anything about them."

Earlier this year, I put the song on my 2015 playlist, and even though I don't understand the words, I've come to love the song and actually sing along. I'm sure Ani would get a good laugh at my Welsh phonetic pronunciations.

Have a listen to the song ...




I think it is such a sweet song. It kinda always makes me happy listening to it.

Ani's music is available on Bandcamp. If you aren't familiar with it, it is quite easy and you can pay with PayPal. The nice thing about Bandcamp is that the artist gets to keep more money than say iTunes. And, you can even pay more if you want ... think of it as a tip. It is the perfect way for indie artists to get their music out. 

I hope you support Ani by legally buying her music. It really helps out, especially when I know she has an album on the way! Hooray! Like Ani Glass's Facebook page!

Cheers then,

P.S. Before Ani went solo, she was in The Pipettes, and I interviewed her in 2012. Check it out! She also later was in The Lovely Wars.

Darllenwyr Poptastic Dear,

# 15 yn fy hoff ganeuon 2015 yw "Ffôl" gan Ani Glass. I weld beth oedd gan Poptastic Confessions i'w ddweud am y peth yn gynharach eleni, cliciwch ar y teitl cân.

Nawr mae'n debyg sylwi nad teitl gân yn Saesneg. Mae hynny'n iawn! Mae'r gân yn canu yn y Gymraeg, fel y Ani yn dod o Gymru! "Ffôl" yn cyfateb i "ffol," ac Ani yn dweud y gân "yn delio â thuedd cyffredinol pobl i gwyno am bethau heb wneud unrhyw beth amdanyn nhw."

Yn gynharach eleni, yr wyf yn rhoi y gân ar fy rhestr chwarae 2015, ac er nad wyf yn deall y geiriau, rwyf wedi dod i garu y gân ac mewn gwirionedd yn canu. Rwy'n siŵr y byddai Ani yn cael hwyl yn fy ynganu seinegol y Gymraeg.

Rwy'n credu ei fod yn gân melys o'r fath. Mae'n kinda bob amser yn gwneud i mi yn hapus gwrando arno.

Cerddoriaeth Ani ar gael ar Bandcamp. Os nad ydych yn gyfarwydd ag ef, mae'n eithaf hawdd a gallwch dalu gyda PayPal. Y peth braf am Bandcamp yw fod yr artist yn cael cadw mwy o arian na dweud iTunes. Ac, gallwch hyd yn oed dalu mwy os byddwch eisiau ... yn meddwl am y peth fel tip. Dyma'r ffordd berffaith i artistiaid indie i gael eu cerddoriaeth allan.

Rwy'n gobeithio y byddwch yn cefnogi Ani trwy brynu ei cherddoriaeth yn gyfreithiol. Mae'n wir yn helpu allan, yn enwedig pan rwy'n gwybod bod ganddi albwm ar y ffordd! Hwre!

Lloniannau hynny,
-Davearama

P.S. Cyn i Ani Aeth unawd, ei bod yn The Pipettes, ac yr wyf yn ei gyfweld yn 2012. Atalfa 'ii maes! Mae hi hefyd yn nes ymlaen yn y Rhyfeloedd Lovely.
