Week 29: One night as I lay on my bed, When a man’s in love, Out of the window

Two night-visiting songs this week, plus a curious Irish song in which the singer seems to have gone to visit his love one night but been sadly disappointed when he got there.

One night as I lay on my bed is a song of requited love and unrealised lust; a good combination, which this song powerfully conveys.

When a man’s in love is a similar scenario, perhaps handled slightly less romantically, but with a really beautiful tune.

Out of the window is one of the names applied to this song, which sounds like a much more famous song with a different name again. This one, unlike the others, is accompanied (zither, in thirds and octaves).
