    Whiskey in the jar is an old Irish drinking song.never knew Metallica did the song. Celtic Metal? I think you've just invented a new genre? Celtic Rock and Celtic Punk but Celtic Metal I think is a new one:)

    The first time I herd the song was Metallica's cover.
    Thin Lizzy covered it in 1972, Metallica's is much better.

    Another powerful voice goes silent.
    A different spin on a Prince song made famous by Sinead O'Connor.

    Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
    And no one knows the gypsy's name,
    And no one hears his lonely sighs,
    There are no blankets where he lies.
    Lord, in his deepest dreams the gypsy flies,
    With sweet Melissa.

    I heard one of the performers singing this at the blueberry festival. It's been stuck in my head all week

    You never hear much about Raitt anymore, which is a shame.

    Another John Prine tune.

    I love Bonnie Raitt (and would even if she wasn't cute as hell).
    Check out this version of that tune by another cutie.
