In a Lifetime - traditional
Van Diemen's Land - folk
Wild Honey - reminds me of Van The Man

I would say "Tomorrow", because it has the Irish pipes in them.

And the duet Bono did with Clannad, "In A Lifetime", is also very Irish. Maybe because Clannad has a traditional Irish sound or maybe because the video is set in the Irish countryside.

Bagpipes are Scottish, not Irish.

I think the pipes in "tomorrow" are called Uillean (sp?) pipes.

But yes, Tomorrow does sound Irish. I agree with the people who said that

"Put 'Em Under Pressure," though it's never been clear to me whether Larry actually plays on this or just gets a production credit.

and Jesus Christ is a Woodie Guthrie song, who was American, OKie at that.

My vote is for the newer rendition of Tomorrow and In the Name of the Father.

Listen to the beat. It's like tons of Pogues songs. If JC isn't Irish inspired, The Pogues aren't Irish inspired.

well sure it's Irish inspired, just about anything they do is Irish inpsired, I just think that as far as Irish flavor, I wouldnt pick that one song.

And at that point, when I typed that out, I realize that I am making a very semantical arguement, and also I realize that I like beer. So I don't totally disagree, but I do like beer.

Tomorrow, definitely. I'm curious about the Clannad song now since I do like some Enya.

Mr. Brau, back to the baby huh? Feel like you're being born... just arrived?
