ST. PATRICK'S DAY (WHEN IRISH EYES ARE IMBIBING)
Initially, today's post was to include just five or six tunes by various Irish artists. Alas, I couldn't help adding tracks, and, before I knew it, the whole thing had gotten tragically out of hand.
So... here's a St. Patty's day sampler to sate your holiday hunger.
(Best enjoyed with corned beef, cabbage, a Shamrock Shake, and a hearty helping of Catholic guilt. Tear that pope to pieces, Sinead! He IS the real enemy!)
