With St. Patrick's Day just a week or so away, it's time to start planning your playlists for a rockin' St. Patty's Day ride!  This is one of my favorite rides that I do each year because there are so many great songs/bands to choose from that would fit into the St. Patrick's Day theme.  If you've new to teaching or if you've just never put a St. Patrick's Day ride together, I hope this post can help you get started.  Here are a few amazing band's that you'll want to check out when planning your playlist:

Young Dubliner's (Favorites: Bodhran, The Foggy Dew, I'll Tell Me Ma)

Flogging Molly (Favorites: Drunken Lullabies, Devil's Dance Floor, Swagger)

Dropkick Murphys (Favorites: I'm Shipping Up To Boston, Amazing Grace, The Boys Are Back)

Other favorites worth looking up:  Van Morrison, The Cranberries, Gaelic Storm, U2 (obviously...), The Corrs, The Pogues, Enter the Haggis, Ronan Hardiman,

Here is my Spotify playlist from last year's class:

...and a Spotify playlist with some great Irish tunes from Topsify US:

And let's not forget the cool down/stretch.  I came across this "Mashup" from The Piano Guys which features one of my favorite songs of 2015 and  I've been waiting patiently to put it on this year's playlist:

I hope you've found some inspiration from this post to create your own playlist for an amazing St. Patrick's Day ride this year!

What's your favorite song to use for a St. Patrick's Day ride?
