Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As a tribute, I have compiled the playlist below to celebrate some of the best Irish music.
Now before anyone gets upset, I know that the artists listed below are a mixture from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland (as well as other countries). I understand that these are two separate countries and mean no offence by creating this list. This playlist is in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, so admittedly I have bundled them all together. No disrespect meant to either nation.
Anyway, the only offensive thing about this list is that Van bloody Morrison managed to weasel his way into my music collection. Still, at least it’s not “Brown Eyed Girl” (piece of crap song)…
- Thin Lizzy – “Whiskey in the Jar”
- Stiff Little Fingers – “Alternative Ulster”
- The Dubliners & The Pogues – “The Irish Rover”
- Therapy? – “Screamager”
- Flogging Molly – “If I Ever Leave This World Alive”
- Ash – “Burn Baby Burn”
- Gary Moore with Phil Lynott – “Out in the Fields”
- The Undertones – “My Perfect Cousin”
- Imelda May – “Sneaky Freak”
- The Answer – “Too Far Gone”
- The Dubliners – “Seven Drunken Nights”
- Van Morrison – “Madame George”
- U2 – “Pride (In the Name of Love)”
