Ah, St. Patrick’s Day… the day to wear green (and to pinch those that don’t), the day to drink a few pints (most likely in a pub like the one shown above), and the day to celebrate all things Irish.
Since this week holds this much-loved holiday, we thought it would only be appropriate if our Music Monday post was an ode to St. Patrick himself. And what better way to do that then to share a playlist of 10 Singers Whose Names Start with Pat. We’re not sure if any of them are Irish, but then again, St. Patrick himself wasn’t Irish either. (Who knew?)
So as much as we love a good Irish jig, we thought this would be a fun, non-traditional selection of songs sure to start your St. Patrick’s Day week off right. By the way, we wrap up this playlist with a song so catchy, you’re sure to still be singing it by the time St. Patty’s Day rolls around on Friday. Take a listen, you’ll see what we mean.
1) Because the Night – Patti Smith (1978)
2) Heartbreaker – Pat Benatar (1979)
3) Goodbye to You – Patty Smyth (Scandal) (1982)
5) Last Train Home – Pat Metheny (1987)
7) Haven’t Seen For A While – Pat McGee (1997)
8) When it Don’t Come Easy – Patty Griffin (2004)
9) While I Was Away – Pat Green (2015)
