Couldn’t ‘ave come at a better time.

Apparently it’s St. Patricks day?! I’m kinda surprised I haven’t posted these songs before. (Previous St. Paddy posts/songs from 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008) They are definitely not on Spotify. My favorite two songs off the album. Can You Hear The Rangers Sing / Sean South has definitely the go-to Irish song thanks to Brendan. Here are some mp3s:

Can You Hear The Rangers Sing/ Sean South Of Garryowen


Dessie O’Halloran

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.


Tell me Spotify

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.

From Communication and Conviction: the Last Seven Years, Buckets of Beer is great, Paper and Pins was included on the cd’s I gave out at my wedding, Seven Drunken Nights and Finnegan’s Wake are classics, and the live version of Irish Rover (can’t find it other than 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.
