In the run up to the 17th

12 03 2010

St. Patrick’s Day, or Lá Fhéile Pádraig in Irish, is coming up next week.  Lots of the Irish-for-a-day crowd will be celebrating all weekend.  I’m not as into the holiday as I had been in years past.  Still, though, it means something to me.  I was thinking about the great Irish or at least Celtici-flavored music that I like and the Pogues came immediately to mind.  What a great band!  Too bad Shane Macgowan’s such a mess.  He’s a great vocalist (for that style.)  This song’s quite typical of the energy and quality of the Pogues’ work in their heyday.
