Kiss Me, I'm Irish!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, my little ashy Angelas and Anguseseses!  It is Choose and Defend Wednesday, as well as being St. Patrick's Day, so I thought I'd try and combine the two celebrations into one big bar brawl.   Let's have it all out here and now....What is your favorite Irish export?

Is it...



As always, I ask you to make a choice between two things...Choose.  Next, I ask you to tell me why you'd do such a thing....Defend.  If you like, you can go on to talk about the Irish export you REALLY prefer that is NOT one of these two things....but only after you Choose and Defend.  Ready?  GO!  I mean Erin GO Braugh!

U-2 for sure. I love the lyrics to In the Name of Love. Besides... I'm afraid if I Riverdance that my feet will snap off at my ankles!

Beannachtai na Feile Padraig!

FW said...

U2 for me also, In The Name Of Love blew my mind when I first heard it and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For is a beautiful song. I like aspects of Riverdance just not enough to Edge U2 out the way!

Mrs. Hairy Woman said...

That ought to be easy for me.. If the choices had been beer or more beer I would've said yes to But alas I will have to go with Riverdancing.. The costumes they wear are kinda cool and the curly wigs to match.. Not a fan of U2.. sorry..

Churlita said...

Can I vote for the Pogues instead? If not, I'll go with U2.

U2, I guess. Riverdance is interesting, but I get bored with it after a while. And I agree with the others about "In the Name of Love." What a powerful song.

AlienCG said...

Condsidering The Joshua Tree consistently makes my list of favorite albums and I am not a fan of Michael Flatley, so I guess I have to say U2.

Tara said...

I will be rebellious and pick Riverdance! I've only seen a bit of one of their concerts on TV, and I like the music....and of course the dancing.

NoRegrets said...

Oh, there is no comparison. U2 BABY!

(I love the Edge. Go see It Might Get Loud if you like guitar music)

Ananda: That's funny, I have sometimes invisioned the riverdancers little legs just flying loose :-) One for U2.

FW: I know what a music fan you are, so I am not surprised. Two for U2.

Mrs: haha! I thought about beer or corned beef...but it seemed so one sided :-) One for Riverdance.

Churlita: I like the Pogues too! Three for U2.

Secret: Good defense. And Bono is a very passionate vocalist. Four for U2.

AlienCG: Did you ever see Mike Myers on SNL doing his Michael Flatley impression? Very funny :-) Five for U2.

Tara: Thank you for the rebellion to keep things interesting! Two for Riverdance.

NoRegrets: Achtung! I do want to see that, thank you for the reminder! Six for U2.

Everyone: Well U2 is running away with this one with 6 votes to Riverdance's 2. Anymore fans of things Irish want to speak out? Don't be shy.
