St. Catty's Day #MewsicMovesMe

The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is "songs to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland."


Conway's version of Danny Boy begins in the way we're used to hearing it -- somber and mournful -- but it quickly transforms into a joyful, late ‘50s rock classic. It was one of Conway's biggest rock hits, but didn't fare so well across the pond. It’s among the songs that have been banned by the BBC! 



We decided to change the rules of this week's theme a bit for the rest of our playlist, and present a few country singers that hail from Ireland...





We hope you enjoyed our choices this week!
Do you have any favorite Irish tunes?

M&M,

Yeah, I just came up with that! :) I love M&Ms, don't you? Anywho, I really enjoyed Conway's version of "Danny Boy". He really rocked it, didn't he?

I hope you're doing well and not buying into the media hype too badly. Stay healthy! Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor, my dear. Have a boogietastic week!

I decided to mix things up a little and listen to your tunes from the bottom up. When I got to Conway Twitty and "Danny Boy" - well, I was not at all familiar with it (I honestly don't know too much about his years as a rock and roller) and enjoyed it so much. Then to find out it was banned by the BBC - I found, on Spotify, a playlist of songs banned by the BBC and I may use that as a theme one of these days (but not in April).
