Luke Kelly - Song for Ireland, The Pogues- Body of an American

This one more or less explains itself. It is Saint Patrick's Day and although I was just about to swing towards a party Pogues song I feel this lament has much more of a poignant meaning in this era where many of us have been forced to leave our green home. I have not made it to the pub to sip on a pint of green food dye yet so I am taking advantage of appreciating and missing my homeland.

This may be where it stops for the day and the party kicks in so I felt the need to bring up the mood and include one of my favourite Pogues tune which unfortunately is still very poignant and topical but at least you can dance to it and raise your arms (and drinks) and be proud.
