Music Roundup Monday: "Eire, the Ancient Ways, and the Thin White Duke"

A couple years ago, I was in Ireland, in Ballyvaughan or Galway, homesick and yet at home. Sing of old Eire and the ancient ways:   
Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days.

David Bowie - "5.15 The Angels Have Gone"

The Young Dubliners - "Weila Waile"

Christy Moore and Shane MacGowan - "Spancil Hill"

Shane MacGowan and the Popes: "The Song With No Name"

The Dropkick Murphys - "Climbing a Chair to Bed"

The Bloody Irish Boys - "Streams of Whiskey"

The Pogues - "A Pair of Brown Eyes"

Bonus: The Pogues - "The Auld Triangle"
