It’s that time of year again — time to get decked out in your favorite green entire, dine on corn beef and cabbage, and celebrate Irish heritage. It’s St. Patrick’s Day! If you’re having people over to for a party, you’ll want to have the best music playing. Both because they sound typically Irish and because they’re by Irish musicians, these are the most popular St. Patrick’s Day songs you should be playing.
Devil’s Dance Floor by Flogging Molly’s
Between the piccolo, accordion, fiddle, and vocals of this song, you won’t be able to help stomping your feet and breaking out into an Irish jig.
