Your St Patricks Day playlist sorted
St Patricks Day brings about many celebrations across the world, and whether you’re a traditionalist or superstitiously sporting your all green attire, the chances are you’re gonna need a playlist to complement the day. Here we’ve compiled a list of our top 20 Irish songs that we believe are a must for your St Patricks Day party!
U2 – It wouldn’t be a playlist without these legends! You could add just about any of their songs to your Paddy’s Day playlist but we’ve managed to narrow it down to these 3 classics! Beautiful Day, With or Without you, Sunday bloody Sunday
The Pogues – Ah, need we say more. They’re a household name when Christmas time comes around, but these guys are also a necessary addition to our St Paddy’s Day playlist. Dirty Old Town, Fairytale of New York
B*Witched – Now this is bringing back the memories! A bit of a 90’s throw back, if you don’t sing along then there’s an issue. Say you will, say you won’t. C’est La Vie
Thin Lizzy – Typically thought to be a Metallica classic, Thin Lizzy are the true masters for this throwback tune. Of course either rendition is great, we decided to stick to the original for an authentic Irish feel. Whisky in the jar
Flogging Molly – This band screams St Patrick’s Day, and they’re sweet Irish tunes are a definite must for our top 20 this year!
Celtic Woman – Take a break with this beautiful rendition of the immortal ‘Danny Boy’
Steve Earle –It has to be done. Is there anything better than an Irish love song? Galway Girl
Snow Patrol –Another throwback and sing along for everyone. This one’s for the draw down to the night, with arms thrown around each other and a gentle sway going on. Chasing Cars
Great Big Sea/Van Morrison – These last couple of tunes are absolute classics and are sure to get the festive juices flowing and are an epic throwback! So enjoy the smooth melody and sing along to those memorable lyrics! Ordinary Day, Brown eyed Girl
