The Luckiest Playlist Suggestions for Your Shamrock Shenanigans: One Sentence Staff Picks

St. Patrick’s Day may have passed, but the shamrock shenanigans have yet to begin here in Oxford, Ohio. Of course, with any celebration, a banger playlist is absolutely necessary. If you are currently in dire need of song suggestions that will make you break out into an Irish jig, look no further. 

RedHawk Radio bestows to you our lucky gold tokens (a.k.a our favorite St. Patrick’s Day songs):   

“Fisherman’s Blues by The Waterboys

Karla Garcia 

This track is perfect to celebrate Irish culture and enjoy both traditional and modern festivities associated with Saint Patrick — the patron saint of Ireland. 

Dreams by The Cranberries 

Ellie Irish 

You will feel green, white, and orange pumping through your veins from one of the best Irish bands, The Cranberries (trust me, this song is the epitome of running around with your friends while wearing green).

Act My Age by One Direction 

Nya Hodge 

Made with the blood, sweat, and tears of the Irish, stream this song and feel like a real Paul Mescal (P.S.- The only Irishman in 1D, Niall Horan, has a solo, which, if you’re familiar with 1D Lore, you KNOW is rare). 

Ava Shaffer 

I know my last song suggestion was also One Direction, but you cannot deny the rich and intense power of Ireland in this song (the opening chords can’t help but make me want to stand up and do a little jig).

Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran

Rachel Foley 

A St. Patty’s Day playlist wouldn’t be complete without at least one song from the OG Ginger in pop, and this song’s Irish references make it even more perfect. 

Come On Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners 

Emma Schaefer 

This song has the charm of an Irish pub and will get you hyped up, exactly what you need on this special day. 

Almost (Sweet Music) by Hozier

Emma Rudkin 

There’s no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day festivities than streaming Hozier, one of my favorite Irishmen. 

The Humors of Whiskey by Hozier 

Ethan K. Poole 

This a capella cover of a Celtic drinking song perfectly fits the vibe you’re looking for: it is beautiful, a little haunting, and absolutely perfect for sharing a round with your friends. 

Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis 

Gwen Engelhart 

If I heard this song whilst shamrock shenanigans were happening, I would rally instantaneously. 

“I’m Shipping Up To Boston by Dropkick Murphys 

Rachel Watkins

I’m not going to sugarcoat it: if you don’t include this song in your St. Patty’s Day playlist, you didn’t correctly celebrate (really, no further explanation is needed).
