Great video, they did a nice job on the graphics....   Is that scottish, or irish, or what they call gaelic i think is the spelling?

You know some say that the song by Thin Lizzy - Whiskey in the Jar  and the part that says
"Musha ring dum a doo dam a da"   has its roots back in the very early gaelic (they were irish) which transcends into something along the lines of  "i got drunk and make a fool of myself"  lol

I have not had a drink in about 25 years but i had lots of those moments during my run with alcohol, i didnt quit because i had to, i just quit because it didnt make any sense anymore why i was doing it..

Nightwish is ... complex. The founding members of the band -- Tuomas (keyboards, band's composer), Marco (bass, backup vocals, lead vocals), Kai (drums), and Emppu (lead guitar)-- are Finnish, the (primary) lead vocalist -- Floor -- is Dutch, and their pipes/woodwinds/third guitar/backup vocals/lead vocals/what the hell can't he do -- Troy -- is British.

The band's first lead singer -- Tarja -- had a haunting ethereal operatic voice with the rhythm of an epileptic when performing live. Their second lead singer -- Annette -- had a voice more suited to pop music. Most fans of the band disliked her even though some of their best songs -- Amaranth, Storytime, Song of Myself -- come from that time.

Floor can sing almost anything in any style. She can do the head voice classical, mix, chest belts, growls, full on operatic, pop, rock...

Recently (5-6 years ago) their old drummer Jukka had to step down due to a sleep disorder. Care to guess which one? The new drummer -- Kai -- is more versatile, but he lacks the energy Jukka had.

Basically they've had a lot of lineup changes the past 20 years.

If you liked that song, you should probably check out the acoustic version with just Floor and Troy on Planet Rock.

Though the gateway that brings most people into Nightwish is the Wacken performance of "Ghost Love Score".

First song of theirs I remember encountering was "Wishmaster", though my favorite is a tossup between "Nemo" and "The Islander". The latter being interesting because it has Marco singing lead.

Nope, not a fan. Not at all.
