"This is my favorite St. Patrick's Day cd and it's always a winner at parties. Top 40 shmorty...play this at your parties no matter what the crowd and watch all your friends become happy drunk irishmen right before your eyes as the party goes on. The Dubliners do a few songs on this cd, but most are performed by the Clancy Brothers who are my absolute favorites. Powerful vocals and great lively music. Lotsa humor thrown in too.Whiskey in the Jar performed by the Dubliners is Great!
Not too sure what song two is about, but the title is Beer, Beer, Beer.
Water is alright in Tay...Perfect song for drinkin'(especially a cold pint of Guiness).
The list goes on and on and then you get to my personal favorite: Finnegan's Wake...Fighting and drinking and people returning from the dead...A wonderful family get together song performed nicely by the Clancy Brothers. Lot's of comical stories in the music as in Juice of the Barley and Finnegan's Wake. The Parting Glass should not be played until nearly the end of any party...it's truly a parting song. Skip this until the end (I actually love this song, but when you hear it you will understand what I mean).If you really want to liven up the party and you cater to a younger crowd, mix this cd with the punkish Dropkick Murphys music. They do some Irish folk covers like Rocky Road to Dublin, Finnegan's Wake etc...Bainne na mo is an gamna and the juice of the barley for me!Enjoy this cd and Don't Drink and Drive!"
Perfect St. Pat's Pub CD

"Each of the songs on this CD is worth listening to and singing poorly over a couple of pints. The fast paced songs are mixed well with a few slower ones, and each song is a gem."
