Thread Name: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
Subject: RE: BS: Songs you're fed up with playing/hearing
That Fields of Athenry thing - is it really properly Irish? - It doesn't have any of the feel of a proper celtic song. It sounds more like something someone cooked up for a musical?
Unfortunately its the "Club Song" of London Irish Rugby team - so we have to hear it far too often for comfort.
I will confess to having given it a heartrendingly over-emotive rendition once at the singaround in a local after a match. A bit unforgiveable of me really - but since I knew it would go down well with the Rugby fans drinking in the other bar I couldn't resist.....
