St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us, and with it Emerald Isle-inspired St. Patrick’s Day decorations, Irish-themed crafts and games and maybe even some green cocktails. No matter what you have lined up to celebrate the day when everybody is Irish—be it a meal of corned beef and cabbage or a good Paddy’s Day joke—one thing’s for certain: you’re going to need Irish songs to go along with it. Ireland is famed for its storytellers, and that includes the island’s musicians. From U2, one of the world’s most successful rock bands, to famed singer-songwriters like Van Morrison, the Irish have a long history of producing great music.
And we’ve gathered up the best of it. Like traditional Irish songs? We found the most beautiful renditions of classics including “Danny Boy” and “Molly Malone.” Or, perhaps you’re looking for something a little perkier for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration? Don’t worry, we’ve also collected loud and proud(ly Irish) tracks from Celtic punk bands like The Rumjacks and Flogging Molly. So whether you’re getting ready to head out to a festive Paddy’s Day event, or make your own party at home with a boozy dessert, you’ll have the perfect soundtrack to listen to while you do it.
