Irish Drinking Songs

March 13, 2017 0 Comments

With St. Paddy’s day coming up, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to share one of my musical guilty pleasures: Irish drinking songs. I’m not a drinker, my husband’s the same, and we’re teaching our kids to avoid alcohol entirely. AND YET, we have habit of listening to pub songs about alcohol – with the kids, no less! – on Saturday mornings as we do a few household chores as a family.

This playlist features some of our all-time favorites. In some cases, I used a different version than I’m used to; I couldn’t find one of our favorites (Darby O’Gill’s Beer Song Medley is so very funny); and I left out a few for maybe being a little over the top (ahem, Lily the Pink, ahem).

So, with all apologies to Ireland and the understanding that Underwater Audio in no way endorses the products or behaviors mentioned within these songs, may I present:
Irish Drinking Songs by Underwater Audio
As always, we’ve included the song times and beats per minute, and we’ve set it up into a pretty entertaining exercise playlist, should you feel so inclined. The links will take you to iTunes if you want to buy the list for yourself, and we have the Spotify playlist below. Hope you enjoy our rollicking playlist of Irish Drinking Songs!

Carol May is an inspiration. A cancer survivor turned competitive senior swimmer, she used hardship as an excuse to do great things. We love the way Carol lives her life

You know that one person who somehow manages to be a part of everything? On all the teams. Getting literally everything done. You wonder if they even sleep because they are so busy. Yeah. That's Andrea (@tri_hippster), and we love her!

For a man who lives in a desert, Chris Smith lives just about the most aquatic lifestyle we can imagine. When a knee injury meant Chris would have to endure surgery and months of “knee-hab”, Chris knew he needed to get proactive.
