If someone told me to pick the perfect Irish drinking song, then I'd probably select Spirit of the West's "Home for a Rest." Except I'd be totally incorrect in choosing that song, because Spirit of the West is a Canadian band. So, it is a Canadian drinking song. But in my limited vision of what a Irish drinking song is, I think "Home for a Rest" fits it perfectly. I'm sure many Irish drinkers could pick out a better, but it is my blog and I choose this song.
I really love this song. I love it so much that I'd marry it, if you could marry a song and I wasn't already taken. I wouldn't even need to be drunk to want to marry it. I love this song even when I'm sober. I think, I've asked this song to be played at almost every wedding reception dance I've ever been to. This is a song that makes everyone want to dance and groove.
As my tribute to the St. Patrick's day that just passed, I present to you the awesome "Home for a Rest" by Spirit of the West.
