St. Patrick’s Day “Choose Your Own Song”

Today and tomorrow, I’m running a very special (and short) “Choose Your Own Song”. In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m asking you, loyal readers, to pick an Irish song for me to record. Given that Paddy’s Day is only days away, there isn’t time to put it to the vote, so I’m going to be Judge and Jury on this one. I’ll take suggestions until Friday midnight, then pick one and record it over the weekend for #NewMusicMonday. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. Thanks!

  1. Hey Derek,
    I’d love to hear “She moves through the fair” or a classic Lizzy track- “Old Town” ;)))
    Can’t wait to see what you chose x Orla

  2. Hi Derek,
    This is a long shot I know but my favourite Irish song is called “Leaving Nancy” by the
    Furey’s – it reminds me of long car journeys in the summer on our way to the sea:)
    I think it would be a great match for your voice.

    Happy Paddy’s Day

  3. Well shoot, Derek, the only two I can think of is a slightly raunchy version of “Brian O’Lynn” by Dave Van Ronk or the not-raunchy “Mick McGilligans Ball.”
