Songs with dance tunes as the melody (in English)
I know of quite a few & they are generally much more palatable then the run of the mill rebel/puke in your beer sing-a-long’s that most americans have come to expect.
Off the top of my head I can recall The Rakes of Kildare, Nell Flaherty’s Drake, Rocky Road to Dublin etc.
I’ve heard many (especially slip jigs) with Irish lyrics, I enjoy listening to them - but I’m not an Irish speaker.
Please point me in the direction of more songs like these.
