Raise a toast to these potential Paddy's Day ditties
Ahh, St. Patrick's Day: the one day of the year when everyone and their mother seems to be Irish. Whether you see the event as a celebration of Irish culture, an ode to the Saint who rid the Emerald Isle of snakes, or a chance to show off your swinging Irish jig, St. Patrick's will always be a great excuse to wear tiny hats and chug green beer mid-week.
But for all you free-wheeling fun seekers intending to celebrate the day holed up in an Irish bar (promotional Guinness hats aplenty), do remember that nothing compliments good alcohol better than great music. With that in mind, here's our guide to the booziest tunes to pair with your favourite tipple. Sláinte!
Okay so here's the REAL list in no particular order after #1 as whoever wrote this article hasn't got a clue!
1. Amhran na bhFiann - The Irish National Anthem (The Soldiers' Song)
2. Dirty Old Town
3. Finnegan's Wake
4. The Town I Loved So Well
5. The Fields of Athenry
6. I Useta Love Her
7. Come Out Ye Black and Tans
8. Whiskey In The Jar
10. Mary Mack
11. A Nation Once Again
12. God Save Ireland
13. The Flight of Earls
14. Only Our Rivers Run Free
15. The Ould Triangle (may find it spelled as the Auld Triangle)
16. The Rare 'Oul Times
17. The Pub With No Beer
18. Four Green Fields
19. The Green Fields of France
20. Irish Ways and Irish Laws.
Happy St. Patrick`s Day all.
WTF....who came up with this list??????...... songs by Elton John, Rihanna,....If this is how the rest of North America celebrates St.Pats Day then I am very gratefull that I am from Newfoundland... the closet place in North America to Ireland! I ****ed more Irish rooted music this morning with the quart of whiskey I drank last night....... come to Newfoundland and we will show you how to celebrate St.Patricks Day properly.... through IRISH rooted music, whiskey and Beer..... the person who came up with this list must have been thinking about any other Saturday night, not Paddy's Day, what a f-ing moron
Irish Drnking Songs ; Black Velvet Band, Danny Boy, Cockles and Mussels, I'll take you home again Kathleen, Rose of Tralee, When Irish Eyes are Smiling, Irish Washerwoman (yes there are lyrics if you can keep up), If your Irish, come into the parlour, The Irish Rover, Its a Long Way to Tipperary, McNamara's Band.
They might be old but after a few Guinness, who cares as long as there is more Guinness
These songs have nothing to do with St. Pat's day at all. This list could not get more horrid. Where's "Whiskey in a Jar" or "Shipping up to Boston" or....anything Irish Rock for that matter.
This proves that even an idiot can get a job. I wouldn't be going to his house for a Paddy's Day party it would SUCK. I can probably go on iTunes and get an album that would be better. Just saying.
Spirit of the West & Great Big Sea - "I'm a Rover" are missing and that is very disappointing.
Taylor Swift uses her performance time during the Grammys to take a verbal jab at harry Styles.
