An Favorite Irish Tune for St. Patrick’s Day!


What would the world be like without music? Hard to imagine really.

This Sunday’s prompt at Woven Dreams is : MUSIC.

I started to think about how many favorite songs I have: from jazz, to rock, to classical…the list goes on and on.

Would be hard to narrow it down to even a dozen or two.

 But for St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it would be fun to share one of my fav. Irish tunes:

Black Velvet Band (click to play, sing and dance along!) 😉

Gotta love The Irish Rovers!

  1. You could use this post for the music prompt tomorrow. I agree about music being so intricately woven in our lives. Can’t imagine being without it.

  2. Ps, I have one of those plants growing right outside and it will bloom soon.

  3. You’ve got me jiggin’, Geraldine! 🙂 I love the Irish Rovers, too. And now I’m remembering parties as a child and my father playing the spoons – lol – and tap dancing. My father was from Newfoundland and his Irish roots ran deep 🙂

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  4. Hi Teri, Already planned for that Teri! 😉 You have a shamrock plant, how cool is that.

    Hi Talon, Playing the spoons, I’ve done that. This tune always makes me want to get up and dance. I’m glad this post conjured up some fun memories. 🙂 I’m a jiggin’ too!

    Happy Weekend, G

  5. PS: I hadn’t played the whole video before today past the part with the Irish Rovers. What fun watching the kids playing recorders and the spoons at their party on the hill! Looks like a good way to leave cares behind!

  6. ha. you got me moving..and its a nice break from writing my paper as well…really enjoyed the music…and now inspired to write mine for tomorrow! happy st pats!

  7. Favorite songs can lift your spirits and live on, long after they are written. It was fun to watch this, The Irish Rovers were great and so were the kids up on the hill. What a fun post.

  8. Jigging and foot tapping here…. how wonderful to hear Black Velvet again. Thank you, and Happy Saint Pat’s Day to you.

  9. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Geraldine (my St. Patty’s post was on my other blog today, Jim’s Little Blog).

    I like your picture. Those plants grow wild like weeds in Ireland. I posted about one back in 2011 and 2007:

  10. This is great! Hope you enjoyed Saint Patrick’s Day!!

  11. Oh how I love that picture. I hope you had a great St. Patrick’s Day!

  12. Music is one of the things that keeps me sane. It’s hard to imagine a world without music.

  13. Thanks for the treat, Geraldine! 😀
    I hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day and a great start to the week.

  14. I like the fun, frivolous and carefree spirit of the Irish songs. They are the kind one can feel like kicking up a heel and getting into. 🙂

  15. Hi Brian, This has been such a fun prompt. I love your interpretations and everyone else’s at Woven Dreams too. Music…play on!

    Hi Joe, Yeah, I loved the party on the hill at the end of the video, that was so much fun.

    Hi Val, Glad to hear it! Jig on girl. 😉

    Hi Jim, How lucky you are to have seen them in Ireland. How cool is that.

    Hi Donetta, And thanks for a wonderful prompt. Glad you’ve joined in at Woven Dreams!

    Hi Keith, I love green, it’s my fav color so I really loved this pic too.

    Hi Rae, Music is definitely a great way to lift our spirits, I agree.

    Hi Vesper, You’re so welcome my friend.

    Hi Joyce, I never tire of this song and it always makes me sing along too! Fun and frivolous is good!!!

    Hope all the luck of the Irish is on it’s way to all of you this week! 🙂

    Hugs, G

  16. Terrific music! And I love the shamrock photo, as well!
