Wednesday's Song of the Week

There are a few songs that no matter where I am or what I'm doing, bring me right back to a noisy Baltimore rowhouse packed with all of my closest friends, and without a doubt, Black 47's "Funky Ceili" is one of those songs. Because the amount of times we turned the volume up in our underwear and danced around the house in our underwear while screaming the words to this song in our underwear must be in the hundreds.

HE SAID YOU'VE GOT TWO CHOICES: CASTRATION OR A ONE-WAY TICKET TO NEW YORK.

I'm not sure why we ever became so obsessed with this song. Whether it was because we were a particularly Irish group or because we had a thing for jigs or because the more we drank the more we loved to scream, this song was on every single party play list. Besides the fond alcohol-soaked memories that are attached to this song, it remains on the list of my all-time favorites because, in case you didn't know, my friends often refer to me as Bridie, the Irish nickname of Bridget, and who doesn't love a good song with their name in it? It totally counts.

Good gah I love this song. And the fact that this is without a doubt the most awkward music video I have ever seen in my LIFE only adds to that love. I mean, wow. Just ... wow.

It's Adam again. I think by the transitive property of music theme association you have to reference Kenny Chesney's "I go back" seeing as how that is all this post is about. In order to thank me for pointing this out to you, I will accept your wedding date change to October 17th as stated in previous emails.

Dear Adam, get over it. Kenny Chesney sucks. And so does LSU. BOOM ROASTED.
