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.

I did actually look, and save a recent year when it fell on the weekend, there's been a St. Patrick's Day set every year.
My curiosity has been piqued, so later I'll check the rest of those.

I've been feeling queasy all morning (and I don't have any "medicine" to calm my stomach),
and otherwise much crankier than usual.  I took notes, but didn't recognize a lot of today's
set, and I'm generally in a "fuck it" mood.  So no set list for now.

No worries, here's the GS version in the interim.

1. Van Morrison - Into the Mystic
2. The Corrs w/Bono - When the Stars Go Blue
3. The Pogues - Dirty Old Town
4. Sinead O'Connor - No Man's Woman
5. Thin Lizzy - Whiskey in the Jar
6. Rory Gallagher - Country Mile
7. Enya - Orinoco Flow
8. Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster
9. The Strypes - Blue Collar Jane
10. Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabies
Let's get right to it.

Last year's for comparison:

Quote
/3/17/15 Tuesday!! All Irish for a Happy St Patrick's Day!!

 1.  Thin Lizzy- Whiskey In the Jar (B.O.S!)
 2.  Sinead O'Connor- The Emperor's New Clothes
 3.  Flogging Molly- Drunken Lullabies
 4.  U2- Gloria
 5.  Horslips- Dearg Doom
 6.  The Commitments- Mustang Sally
 7.  The Pogues-Dirty Old Town
 8.  Van Morrison- Being Green
 9.  Rory Gallagher- Country Mile
10. Stiff Little Fingers- Alternative Ulster

6 repeat songs from last year's plus 2 other repeat artists doing diff songs (Van & Sinead). And of course the oft-heard Enya. The Strypes (a Foghead request) being the only true newbie. So we broke our multiple-bustout streak, I guess.
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Nos. 4 and 9 appear to be bust-outs.

The first three clips were too short and unintelligible for me to have any clue what they were.
After Thin Lizzy there was one from Waking Ned Devine, two from The Simpsons, and one
from 30 Rock.  I did not recognize the final clip either.
