Ah! Thursday. Every event professional, event planner, and event committee member's favorite day of the week - the day MeetingPlay (your mobile event app) shares our weekly playlist.  This week, how could we pass up the event world opportunity on this amazing day - St. Patrick's Day. 

Made an official holiday in the early 17th century by religious influences - now a days, it seems to be more focused on everything green - from clothing to beer. No matter how you spend your day - may it be full of planning and executing successful, engaging events. (That perhaps, are full of green & shamrocks, my lad!)

(Oh, and here's our St. Patrick's Day inspired playlist for you this week!):

1. The Dubliner's - Whiskey in the Jar



Sing along:

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

2.) Macklemore - Irish Celebration

Sing along:

We put our glass to the sky and lift up
And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya
So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us
And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya

3.) The Beatle's - I Saw Her Standing There


Sing along:

Well my heart went boom
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine

4.) Counting Crows - Hangin' Around

Sing along:

She sat right down on the sofa
I said, "Where have you been? I've been waiting for you.
'Cause last night I had something so good
These days get so long and I got nothing to do"

5.) Celtic Women - "Danny Boy"

Sing along:

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warm and sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

6.) Snow Patrol - Just Say Yes

Sing along:

I'm running out of ways to make you see
I want you to stay here beside me
I won't be ok and I won't pretend I am
So just tell me today and take my hand
Please take my hand

7.) U2 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

Sing along:

I have run I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

8.)Boondock Saints Theme Song - The Blood of Cú Chulainn

Happy St. Patrick's Day to every event professional, event planner, or any one planning an event, meeting, conference or seminar!
