All Over Again

Album: Bring You Home (2006)
Charted: 6
  • Keating recorded this as a duet with the British singer Kate Rusby. Keating also recorded alternate versions of the song with different singers from around that world: Jessica Andersson from Sweden, Rita Guerra from Portugal, Rita Comisi from Italy, Kelly Chen from China and Floortje Smit from Holland.
  • This was written by Randy Goodrum and Don Mescall. Goodrum wrote "You Needed Me," which was a #1 UK hit for Keating's band Boyzone. Mescall is a popular Irish songwriter and musician. In our interview with Randy Goodrum, he explained: "It wasn't necessarily written for Ronan, but that was a great record. That was a very dramatic production, actually, compared to 'You Needed Me.' That one goes from total soft to just flat-out, and I like those kind of dynamics. I'm not sure record companies and radio are comfortable with that, they'd rather things be a little more level. But I like real dramatic songs like that, that you just unload the kitchen sink in the chorus. And I loved his concept. He did it as a duet and he used different noted singers from different territories to do the female part. It was very ingenious doing it that way, I felt."
