Way back in the day when MTV still played music videos, they used to devote the whole day to playing music by Irish musicians. This was always fun, because Ireland has gifted us with some true musical genius, like U2. But the best part was listening to songs you had forgotten about, or hearing a song you like and going “hey, I didn’t know that band was Irish!” So, here’s my own really short version. Have a pint of Guinness for me while you listen.
Elvis Costello – Pump It up (Wow, if I was on American Idol, I could have performed for “songs from the year you were born”.)
Enya – The Celts
The Cranberries – Salvation
The Corrs – Breathless
