Today’s selected theme for Monday’s Music Moves Me is ‘Songs that are about St Patrick's Day or Ireland’.
Well, In case you haven’t noticed… I’m a bit of a rebel. I’ll do the theme, but of course I’m going to put my own spin on it :)
But first- a quick story. I’m Scottish, with a very Scottish maiden name. When my dad was younger, he was very much into genealogy. He learned that some of our ancestors came from Ireland, yet Grandpa Baird was very adamant that we are Scottish. So my dad very boldly asked him one day - ‘Grandpa, why do you insist that we are Scottish if some of our ancestors came from Ireland?’ and Grandpa Baird simply replied with ‘Just because a cat has her kittens in the oven, it doesn’t mean they are biscuits.’
So today, I figured I would simply go with tunes from Irish musicians. Enjoy!

- Thin Lizzy - Dancing In the Moonlight
