Happy St Patrick's Day! 2/2

More St Patrick's Day shillelagh-anigans with some more live clips, this time from 2015's "Salute To Irish Ireland", starting with one of the Irish musical big guns, The Irish Rover. Or at least the lyrics are. But as for the five artists and songs they're being performed in the style of, that's anybody's guess...



A regular appearance at our quiz nights is the singing superstar Steven Patrick Overcoat Morrissey who provides Smiths-esque medleys of various acts or styles. Being the most Irish man of all time (as evidenced by his 2004 hit "Irish Blood, English Bum") it was inevitable he would turn up to do a megamix of Irish hits both Eire and Northern based. See how many you can pick out.


Bizarrely that Morrissey round was featured on the front page of Audioboom once and got us a thousand plays in a day. Wonder how many of the buggers bought a book....

Final round for now (you can see the full quiz in said just mentioned book) and its time for a jolly sing-a-long with that other staple of pissed toothless arseholes sloshing Guinness around everywhere The Wild Rover. And he sure has roved - all over the world! So much so he's picked up five different languages for the choruses. Can you work out which?
 

That's all the dubious stereotyping for this Paddy's Day! Have a safe one! Don't drink too many lovely pints! Also: buy a book! Thanks. Here's the answers...
