March Playlist & Weekly Wrap Up


I still can’t believe March is here, but we’re excited and ready to celebrate a new month with about a billion fun themes to play with on the site. Because this month contains one of our favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to dedicate this month’s D*S playlist to great Irish and Celtic music. In addition to my favorites (Dropkick Murphys and The Cranberries), we’ve included 15 songs that are bound to get you in the mood for the holiday. And if nothing else, they’ll get you up and dancing for the weekend. This playlist also gave me the pleasure of introducing Max to The Corrs. Now “Breathless” can be stuck in his head for days, too. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and we’ll see you next week! We’ve got so many fun family- and pet-themed projects and posts coming up that I can’t wait to share them all. xo, grace

    Great playlist! I would just add Fionn Regan, and independent Irish artist who simply has beautiful lyrics and wonderful folk music. He is worth checking out! http://fionnregan.com/

    Love the playlist. I have a few recommendations to add as well. This album from a few years ago is one of my favorites, it’s all modern Irish bands performing in Gaelic. There is a great version of “Falling Slowly” by the Swell Season (Remember the movie “Once”?) https://itunes.apple.com/ie/album/ceol-10-suil-siar/id453631973.
    Slainte! (<—- Cheers!)
