I love being Irish. On my travel goals, Ireland is the place I want to visit more than anywhere else. The actual percentage of my Irishness is up for debate (turns out my dad just likes to pretend he’s 100% Irish and there are actually a couple of other things mixed in there), but although diversity is clearly a good thing and I like learning about other cultures, I’m still firmly convinced that Irish is the coolest thing to be. Tonight I will be going out and getting in touch with my roots…by which, of course, I mean “drinking Guinness.”
So my Song of the Moment is one with Irish roots- “Lift the Wings” from Riverdance, a show I was very into in middle school and high school. I love the voices of the singers here, Morgan Crowley and Katie McMahon.
The runner up: this song, “Bugger Off,” which is one of many hilarious Irish drinking songs on a mix CD that my former roommate Christiana Krump has. I remember her playing this song for me not long after we moved into college.
