Someone on AL's page requested Nilsson, "Everybody's Talkin". I felt compelled to point out that his parents were Swedes who lived in Brooklyn.  :)

Not terribly surprised. In yesterday's request thread for 79, there were a TON of songs that were from '78, including one poster that listed more than 20 of them.
Let's get right to it.

The guy insisted that Nilsson's dad was Irish. When strangers on FB are involved, I tend to believe Wikipeidia.


BTW, I'll be elsewhere at 10 today, so take copious notes, kids.

St. Patrick's Day may be the only "holiday" that is commemorated by 10@10 every year.  It's
probably also my least favorite faux holiday.

Valentines, April Fool's Day, Tax Day. Earth Day, Pride Day... :)

But It's not a set I'll be heartbroken about having to miss today.  Tho' it'll be interesting to see how this new "Foghead requests RULE!" policy affects what tends to be a "the usual suspects" kinda set.

Still hasn't started yet at 10:09? Soul Asylum ain't Irish, are they?

Tuned in late, heard the end of Mumford and Sons (are they Irish or English?) and now we're hearing Soul Asylum's Runaway Train. Irish? They're from Minneapolis. (Although the guitar player's name is Murphy, so there's that.)

Still hasn't started, Violent Femmes now. Maybe she's futzing with a turntable for a fabulous rarity on LP....Nahhhh.

Finally! 10:17.
Van Morrison - Into the Mystic

Tasteful, but does not kook.

2. Corrs & Bono - When the Stars Go Blue
3. Pogues - Dirty Old Town

There was a movie clip in between those two, didn't recognize it. Oh and before the Corrs song, we were treated to Irish Greg counting to 10 in Gaelic.

The next quote ("too many Megans") appears to be from 30 Rock.

Speaking of rock, pretty good rocking for Sinead O'Connor - No Man's Woman.

More 30 Rock bits of them watching a St Paddy's Day Parade.

Thin Lizzy's Whiskey in the Jar was in there recently, and now we're hearing Country Mile by... Rory Gallagher?

Simpsons clip > Enya, Orinoco Flow

This gets my vote for songs we never need to hear again.

Don't think I know this one but I like it.
