It St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, and in the spirit of the season I'm posting up this mash up of Run-DMC's It's Tricky and The Dubliner's Whiskey in the Jar. The Pogues's version is involved also, as MacGowan's slurring gets a feature.

Last year, anonymous posted a mash-up of "Whiskey in the Jar" (The Dubliners/The Pogues) with "It's Tricky" (by Run DMC), and I'll have to say that those two songs goes together quite well!
So, "Whiskey in the Jar" is a very well-known Irish traditional song
about a highwayman, who eventually was betrayed by his Jenny, or Molly,
depending on the version of the song being sung.
Quite a few people have covered this song, including a very curious metallized version by Metallica (it's actually quite good!). Got to love their pronunciation of "jar-ar-oh". Must be heard to be believed.
Postens Dramatiske Selskab or PDS remade this song as
"Svikefulle Mari", only it's entirely in Norwegian. I quite like this
version, they seem like a pretty fun bunch from their world travel
photographs. You can download this song on their website.
Please note: this song is best performed live - especially during the singalong chorus:
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar
It St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, and in the spirit of the season I'm posting up this mash up of Run-DMC's It's Tricky and The Dubliner's Whiskey in the Jar. The Pogues's version is involved also, as MacGowan's slurring gets a feature. It's absoultely crazy and fun, and a different take from the usual folky/punky stuff that you'll hear during the season.
Apparently it's not the thing to get really plastered on this day in Ireland, as that's for american tourists and alcoholics, but wherever you are, please be responsible as you're enjoying the festivities. that said....
Serve with a pint of guinness, or a glass of whiskey or Baileys. Sobriety optional.
