Getting ready for your St. Patrick’s Day party? These six songs will be perfect on any playlist for our favorite day of boozing. Listen to them now, because chances are you won’t want to hear anything tomorrow.
Stiff Little Fingers – Alternative Ulster
Tackling the many problems that faced Northern Ireland in the 70’s, “Alternative Ulster” is as socially conscious as punk gets. This song is bound to get the blood flowing, and hopefully make a few people think.
House of Pain – Jump Around
They’re not really from Ireland, but Boston is close enough, right? Regardless, this party anthem will get you ready to party.
The Rumjacks – An Irish Pub Song
I think the title speaks for itself.
Flogging Molly – Devil’s Dance Floor
Use this catchy jam to get people moving. Plus, “Just swing a little more on the Devil’s Dance Floor,” how fun to say is that?!
Dropkick Murphys – Shippin Up To Boston
The Pogues – Love You Till the End
This ballad is perfect for any drunken slow dancing you may feel like doing tonight.
Spirit of the West – Home for a Rest
Okay so this may not be an Irish song, but there’s nothing better for letting drunk people know that it’s time to go home.
And as you stumble home to try to remember to put a glass of water on the bedside table and good luck sleeping off the Jameson!
