So lately it has come to my attention that well...I like Irish people...especially the men folk. It all started when I was about 4 years old and had my very first ever bowl of Lucky Charms. Lucky and my eyes met and I have never been the same. They were, indeed, magically delicious. And basically I've been hooked ever since. I'm sure it's the accent. I'm a sucker for a sweet Irish accent. What really pushes me over the edge is the way Gary Lightbody makes the "er" sound. As in "the broken radiat..or" or "mapped by my intrepid fing..ers". Yep...Squish in the stomach, never fails.
Anyway...the point of this post is to give props to some of my favorite Irish bands. Now, don't get all upset if your favorite isn't here, maybe next time.
First up...of course...my Gary.
This one is for my mom who loves her some Bob Geldof...
And for the poppy boy band lovers...Westlife
And of course, the most popular group to come out of Ireland, U2..
Okay..so there's a little sampling of my peeps. A few more who deserve some mention...The Chieftans, Thin Lizzy, The Frames, The Cranberries, The Corrs, Enya, Van Morrison, My Bloody Valentine, Ash and Damien Rice.
Other Fish in the Sea...
