Funky Ceili / Black 47
Black 47 might be going their separate ways in 2014, but their musical legacy is secure. I remember when they burst onto the scene with their mix of irresistible musical hooks and pointed social commentary. I have a special love for this number because it name checks my old neighborhood, Bainbridge Avenue.
Will Ye Go, Lassie Go / Van Morrison and Paddy Reilly
There are probably as many versions of this beautiful song as there are seats in Croke Park, but this pairing of Van Morrison and Paddy Reilly was too perfect to resist.
