Today is Saint Patrick's Day! That means it’s time to throw on some green and celebrate Irish culture by doing your best jig to the songs below, all of which are by Ireland's finest singers. 

The European country's musical history is extensive—it’s fabled that Saint Patrick ordered all stories to be told in verse and elevated lyricists to the status of kings during his 30-year reign of the Isle. Our St. Patty's Day Playlist has it all, from the traditional tunes of the Pogues to rocking political ditties by U2. We promise that by the time this playlist is over, you'll be ready to audition for Riverdance.
