Kiss me I'm Homercat

Yep, St Pattys Day is today and on a day when everyone seems or claims to be Irish, the green beer will be flowing like raging rivers of spring floods. I know I haven't been posting a lot but real world stuff like work and real life gets in the way. There's no way I could miss a post about St. Patrick's Day.The songs I'm serving up today are some classic Irish drinking songs and may well have been featured here before at one time or another. In fact they may be featured on many sites right now. If you celebrate St. Patricks Day and you do not hear one of these songs wherever you decide to hang your hat then you may have went to a lame party. Just Sayin'. In homercat's humble opinion these songs are essential to a successful St Patty's Day party.

The Black Velvet Band by The Irish Rovers
Company of Fools by Great Big Sea  (co-written by Russell Crowe, yes that Russell Crowe.  Crowe is a fan and friend of Great Big Sea and co-wrote "Company Of Fools" on their recent Fortune's Favour album. Crowe first met the band members six years ago in Toronto, and he also joined them on stage in their hometown of St. John's, Nfld. at O'Reilly's Pub in 2005.)
Whiskey in the Jar by Jimmy the King  (The Irish Elvis impersonator)
The Irish Rover by Johnny Logan

and finally, this song is a must have
Kiss My Irish Ass by Frank Mackey and the Keltic Cowboys
