“Ireland” – Legally Blonde

Music and Lyrics: Laurence O’Keefe & Nell Benjamin

No, this is not an Irish pub song that will make you want to guzzle beer, but it is fitting for St. Patrick’s Day nonetheless.  When heartache strikes the determined heroine of this peppy musical based on the novel and film, hairdresser Paulette tries to cheer her up with Irish music.  Plaintively sung by a woman who longs to visit the Emerald Isle but believes she never will, this song is a goofy, passionate endorsement of Ireland, and therefore ideal for the country’s most famous national holiday.
