Belatedly, Happy St. Paddy’s Day
How’s the craic Widdershins? (Don’t know if I used that correctly or not!
So according to the link above on Irish slang that’s supposed to mean “Hello”! Friday was officially St. Paddy’s day but we’ll just celebrate it today. We’ll pretend we’re still celebrating from Friday.
Now of course this being an Irish holiday/celebration, it has to have music and indeed there more Irish music than you could shake a shillelagh at. And the styles do run the gamut. So I’ll put my selections below and you can, if you wish, add your in the comments.
(1) Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ~ Irish Celebration
(2) The Dubliners ~ Molly Malone
(3) The Great Big Sea ~ The Night Pat Murphy Died
(4) The Pogues ~ Dirty Old Town
(5) Dropkick Murphys ~ I’m Shipping Up To Boston
(6) The Dubliners & The Pogues ~ Irish Rover
So there ya go Widdershins! A nice six-pack of songs to help you to continue celebrating the grand day! Of course it’s an open thread.
