Shamrocks, green clothes, leprechaun hats, and beer are well-known essentials for any Saint Patrick's day outing. But why did Irish music get left out of the mix? Here are 7 Irish songs that are a MUST for any luck-filled Saint Patrick's Day.

1. "Galway Girl"- Mundy

Traditional yet upbeat, this song is sure to have you breaking out your Irish jig.

2. "Galway Girl"- Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran's twist on Galway Girl makes for a modern, fun Irish influenced song to dance to all day. But don't forget your Guinness!

3. "Marie's Wedding"- The High Kings

If you're looking for a song that is full of pure Irish soul with a dash of romance, then this song is for you!

4. "The Parting Glass"- Celtic Woman

A beautiful Irish ballad that is not only going to give you all the feels, but is also a real piece of Irish history.

5. "Will Ye Go, Lassie Go?"- The Irish Tenors

Did someone say Irish opera? A light-hearted traditional song that will for sure have you saying 'yes, ye'll go.'

6. "Foggy Dew"- Sinead O’Connor and the Chieftains

If you need a break from the wild side of Saint Patrick's Day, then this somber song about the Easter Uprising is sure to mellow you out.

7. "Nancy Mulligan"- Ed Sheeran

To top off your playlist, this song written by Ed Sheeran on his grandparent's love story will have you ending Saint Patrick's Day on an uplifting, romantic note making you wish you had worn that "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" button!

Now go forth and enjoy St. Paddy's as your new Irish cultured self.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11761

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
