Thread Name: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Subject: RE: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Oh Alisom, your list was right on target. I love all those songs (except the fake-Irish ones.) Everyone should know all the songs of the Clancy Brothers Greatest Hits. Then theres my 14 volumes (and counting) on the Best of The Thistle & Shamrock I'm assembling. It has over 300 songs & tunes, personally selected by me, that every Celtic lover should know. No one has mentioned the greatest immigration ballad ever "Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore." My mother absolutely loves this song! I assembled from various sources, an 11-minute version, sure to please anyone who can't get enough of this song. Hmm...I don't think I saw "Wild Mountain Thyme," "When You And I Were Young, Maggie," and "The Road to Dundee."
