When collecting as many songs as I could for a Saint Patrick’s Day DJ season, I came was given this album by Dessie O’Halloran. Horrible voice, but something about it that very catchy. For years past, Spotify only had a reggae infused version of the first song (which I’m glad I can’t find), and
now it has the album version I first heard:
And apparently I
posted about this dude before.

I guess we could/should cruise into some Irish
Not On Spotify songs. I haven’t researched why, but I am upset that my favorite Tosser’s albums are not on Spotify.
Communication and Conviction: the Last Seven Years, is great, Buckets of Beer was included on the cd’s I gave out at my wedding, Paper and Pins and Seven Drunken Nights are classics, and the live version of Irish Rover (can’t find it other than Finnegan’s Wake the preview here) is worth playing over and over if only for the intro banter of “All right, you fucks, this is the Irish Rover”.
Every St. Patrick’s day season I would force their version of Tell Me Ma in the rotation, for no else’s enjoyment other than my own.

I got very cynical dismissive last year around this time when someone passed around
this list of best soundtracks from Pitchfork. The main reason was because Dumb & Dumber was nowhere to be found on it. It has this fantastic version of by Crash Test Dummies, Ballad of Peterpumpkinhead by Green Jelly, a cover of The Bear Song by the Proclaimers, (more fun fact than good song) Get Ready by the Lupins (of Take Q101 Lance & Stoley’s fame). Although YouTube says this is Crash (’95 Remix) by the Primitives, I swear there was a fantastic acoustic outro.
Maybe the judges didn’t rate it because all of the songs are not on Spotify.
Jonathon Brandmeier favorite (I can’t find link to corroborate with my memory of this, but…) by Dead Eye Dick is not on Spotify at all. New Age Girl

I started writing this post feeling very cute to have a
Songs Not On Spotify post go from Danger Mouse to MF Doom’s Cartoon Network release, The Mouse and the Mask as Danger Doom. Though I am bummed it doesn’t technically apply to this category, I double checked and am happy to report that the remixed verison is now on Spotify. The non-remix version– according to Spotify– wasn’t there for a really long time, but it really is the better of the verisons:

I guess he has a new YouTube channel and so far they are dumb but also funny but short enough to watch quick.
