My Favorite Irish Singers or Bands

Friday, April 26, 2013
The Irish cherish their artists, no matter the media. Artists do not pay taxes on their €40,000.00 in earnings. Irish musicians have long held a special place in my music library. This list of songs are six of my very favorite songs from Irish musicians.

  1. Van Morrison - Bright Side Of The Road; No list of Irish musicians would be complete without Van The Man. I love his whole library of music, but this song just makes me happy.
  2. U2 - Beautiful Day; These four lads from Dublin are, arguably, the biggest band in the world. When I picked up Boy in 1980, I am not sure I would of picked them to apply for that job. All I knew is that I loved them.
  3. The Cranberries - Zombie; Dolores O'Riordan's voice is amazing. She hits notes that are almost like keening, sending chills down my spine. They released a new album last year, but their first big hit is still a fave.
  4. Glen Hansard - Love Don't Leave Me Waiting; Never mind that he was the guitar player in one of my favorite movies, The Commitments or that The Frames are one of the most under-rated rock bands from  Ireland's 1990's rock scene, Glen Hansard is simply the best.
  5. Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back In Town; I have a soft spot for Thin Lizzy. I love the dueling lead guitars and Phil Lynott's distinctive voice. They are one of the great arena rock bands of the 70's.
  6. Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster; The original punks from Belfast are still rockin it today, but this a classic song from them.
