Happy St. Paddy’s Day; Here’s Your Soundtrack
March 17, 2013

Top o' the morning/afternoon/evenin' to ya. And happy St. Patrick's Day.

Whether you're hitting the pub today and trying to pretend you speak Gaelic so you can pull off that 'Kiss Me I'm Irish' t-shirt, or avoiding people who are doing exactly that, you'll need a solid soundtrack for your day.

Well, we've got you covered. Check out this fine selection of tunes designed to get you in the spirit of the occasion.

The list starts off fast-paced and energetic, then gets a little silly, and ends up melancholy and slower-paced before going silent.

Sounds like a standard day of St. Paddy's Day partying to us.


Your St. Patrick's Day Soundtrack

THE LIST: Ireland On Film
