Nothing Compares 2U, #626


Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!!!

This day only became special to me in recent years.  Yes, I wore green clothes as a child terrified that I’d get pinched by some crazy green mean leprechaun, but it wasn’t until I met my husband 12 years ago that I really started embracing this day.  The reason for the new appreciation is that today is his birthday.  In honor of my wonderful hubby’s day and in honor of St. Patty’s day, I also want to dote on the amazing music from Ireland.  I’ve written several blogs already about how much I love Irish music, but today, I want to help guide you find the best music to listen to in celebration.  So, I’ve put together a list of my favorite musical artists from that beautiful green country.  Here it is:

1.  Enya

2.  The Irish Rovers

3. The Corrs

4.  The Cranberries

5.  The Dubliners

6.  Roy Gallagher

7.  Sinead O’Conner

8.  The Undertones

9.  Thin Lizzy

10. U2

11. Van Morrison

12. The Pogues

13.  The Young Dubliners (They’re actually an LA-based band..but with Irish roots)

If you listen to any of this music today, you’ll be set and full on into a St. Patty’s Day mode.  My song of the day is Sinead O’Conner’s “Nothing Compares 2U” as my way to combine Irish flavor and my hubby’s b-day.  He’s the best, and I love that there’s a bit ‘o the Irish as a part of his day.  Click HERE to hear Sinead sing her heart out and to help me celebrate.  Have a wonderful day, everyone!  Enjoy your celebrating!
