What makes a great Irish drinking song?
Simple: It needs to have a great sing-along chorus that everyone can roar out and the words have to be simple enough in that chorus that even the drunkest party member who's still conscious can remember what they are!
And for St. Patrick's Day, when everyone wants to be Irish for a while, the songs either need to reflect Irish history or culture. It doesn't hurt if many of the songs on the playlist actually have alcohol as the subject, but they don't have to.
With those criteria in mind, here are 10 great songs for your St. Patrick's Day drinking playlist:
For other great versions and "Lily the Pink," you will have great fun with Marc's previous duo, The Brobdingnagian Bards' "The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs."
