  1. Wow! Not one comment. My God you came up with a perfect list for the day. Erin Go Bragh, Buddy. If you ever get to Wisco look me up. Would love to take you to Summerfest.

  2. I'm not Irishman, I'm from Belgrade, Serbia. We have a rock'n'roll band called Orthodox Celts. They play Irish music and have concerts on St.Patrick's Day. I like that kind of music

  3. Another Cheesehead here in Milwaukee. Great list. Anytime I see or hear Green Eyed Lady by Sugarloaf, I can't get that amazing bass line out of my head (and I am a drummer). Love it that you got Green is the Colour by Pink Floyd too. Very obscure song but good. Oh yeah, I'm not Irish either. Like Dan said. You HAVE to come up here for Summerfest! I talk about how songs invoke memories on my blog. Check it out if you have time.
