The Pogues – Streams Of Whiskey

The Pogues are at it again in this song. They are the connoisseurs of drunken commentary. Rebel Voice, being an Irish-based site, could not of course condone such drunken revelry… ahem… but stands by the right of others to engage in this behaviour so long as they don’t fall on you.

The Pogues – Star Of The County Down [Irish Folk Rock]

Here is The Pogues’ version of the popular and lively Ulster ballad. Needless to say, it’s a rollicking take on a classic tune from a land full of the same. Go easy on the whiskey when listening to this, though, as Rebel Voice does not want you to waken up in a strange bed with […]

The Pogues – A Pair Of Brown Eyes [Irish Folk Rock]

This is a haunting ballad about a dog. OK, so you might wonder why go to all the bother for a mutt, but Michael JacksonĀ sung one about a pet rat (Ben), so Rebel Voice prefers this one about man’s – and woman’s – best friend. Keep the tissues close… If you enjoyed this, please share
