The Irish Rover and Whiskey In The Jar (Not the Thin Lizzy or Metallica versions) are two of many:




The Pogues do a kick-ass version with the Dubliners.

Now to throw in a little Flogging Molly:

Is there any other kind?

One of my favorite, and an important cautionary tale on a drinking night like today:

"Zombie" by the Cranberries. I love the song, as well as all that it stands for.

Hmm, too "popular".  Wink
Most songs on Shepherd Moons, The celts, and Watermark are great though.

"The Irish Rover, " "Finnegan's Wake," "The Newry Highwayman," and "Fairytale of New York" are all favorites of mine. Plus, anything by Lunasa or Solas is worth a listen.

I know what you mean. It's been slightly tarred by its popularity. The minute Enya's name comes up, Orinoco flow is not far behind! It's still fantastic.

Ah, so many to remember from my childhood!

I love Fairytale of New York.

Some of the old Percy French songs were wonderful - Mountains of Mourne, Are ye right there Michael?, Phil the Fluters band, It's a long way to Tipperary (I was listening to the Russian army choir sing that a few days ago - quite something to hear "Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly -oh" in a heavy Russian accent!) ...

Fr. Murphy ... "a rebel hand set the heather blazing" ...

And how could I forget "Arise and Follow Charlie" ... (particularly those with brown envelopes ... Wink)

Joking apart, another one I love is "The Town I lived so Well". And let's not forget "Kathleen" ...

Lovely song and lovely piece of music ... but one tiny, tiny problem: the Mull of Kintyre is in Scotland. Hoots man, och eye, wee dram o' Glenlivet etc etc.
