Your 2011 St. Patrick’s Day Playlist

Ah, St. Patrick’s Day, where everyone is Irish for a day. March seems to be full of days like that, since Fat Tuesday is the day where everyone is Catholic for a day.

Since we know many of you will be getting a full-fledged drink on this St. Paddy’s Day, especially since it is also the first day of the NCAA tournament, we have provided a small list of songs about drinking, the effects of drinking, and the vow that many of you will make the following morning. Think of it as the bender that you never took; we love booze as much as the next guys, but sometimes those things are better lived vicariously.

“It’s Time to Party,” Andrew W.K.

With a whopping three songs about partying on his debut album, Andrew W.K. will forever remain our master of ceremonies when it comes to partying. Until we saw the grammar-challenged lyric video, though, we didn’t know this song made a reference to a money shot. Yikes.

“Have a Drink on Me,” AC/DC

The night is young. Everyone is flush with cash and feeling generous. Try and remember this moment when 1:30 rolls around and you’re buying Natural Light pounders. For now, though, you’re living on the top shelf.

Friday Video – Andrew WK, “I Want to See You Go Wild”

The reaction was decidedly mixed when Andrew “Party Hard” W.K. finally released his “lost” third album Close Calls with Brick Walls earlier this year, but after suffering years of pompous, humorless little shits who are far more interested in entertaining themselves than they are the public, the album was a welcome breath of fresh air. It’s not great, no, but it’s fun, damn it. The world could use more of that right now.

And what else would Andrew do with a song like the breakneck-speed “I Want to See You Go Wild” but give it an equally breakneck animated video, stuffed with enough Masonic and occult symbolism to give armchair conspiracy theorists an aneurysm? This is one of the most batshit crazy videos we’ve seen in a while, like a White Zombie album cover come screaming to life. The sound effects drown out the song at times, but see if this doesn’t get your weekend party started off on the right note. Happy 4th, everyone.
