HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY everyone! I’m wearing green today… we’re all Irish on March 17th, right?
In my Sing Street review I said I was going to make a Music Break post dedicated to that movie. Well I haven’t got a chance to do so but hey, it’s perfect for today! Since I haven’t done a Music Break post in ages, I’m going to include my fave songs from other movies set in beautiful Ireland!
So without further ado… here we go…
Can’t pick just one from Sing Street… what a great soundtrack!
I saw ONCE after I saw Sing Street and of course, it broke my heart…
Ooooh how this song made me swoon… I have such fondness for Circle of Friends…
Now I have to admit I adore P.S. I Love You… perhaps the last Gerry Butler movie I actually enjoyed…
Now, Leap Year is a rubbish movie, I only watched it for Matthew Goode! But this song by Snow Patrol is lovely.
Of course, you can’t talk about great Irish-tinged songs without mentioning ENYA right 🙂 Here’s the song from Far and Away, which describes Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s relationship today, ahah.

Of all the films that is set in Ireland, they don’t play any song by Thin Lizzy? Blasphemy!!!!
Hmmm sorry Steven, I don’t even know who that is 😛
Wow…. not even “The Boys Are Back in Town”?
A fun post, Ruth. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Hhmmm.Favorite Irish song in a movie. Any of the songs from ‘Sing Street’ will do!
Thanks Cindy! Sorry been so busy w/ my shopping for a director, just a month before filming, yikes! Too much drama behind the drama, ahah, but we did have a great brunch yesterday w/ the two actors & the two producers of my film: https://www.instagram.com/p/BRyrhBRDy3S/ It was a fun and productive meet up!
Sing Street was brilliant, think my favourite from it was ‘riddle of the model’ though.
Hi Ethan! Yes I like that one too, SO many great songs from Sing Street!
I’m slightly late but Happy St. Patricks Day, Ruth!
I loved all the songs from Sing Street but my favorite has to be ‘Up’, it took my breath away! And ‘Just Say Yes’ from Leap Year is pretty great as else. And I won’t even bother writing about Once. It’s one of the best Irish movies out there.
No such thing as a late comment, Shivani! Thanks for checking out the post and commenting. Ooooh I LOVE ‘Up’ too, man I’m gonna add it here, thanks so much for reminding me. I love how that reminds me of puppy love back in high school and even now I still have schoolgirl crushes, ha!
Glad you love that song from Leap Year and ONCE is sooo beautifully heartbreaking. I’m kind of going through a similar situation right now… though the guy doesn’t know it, but we’re both married
Oh! How are you dealing with that situation along with all this work load? (if you don’t mind me asking).
Well it’s not easy, that’s for sure. Can’t get into it much here I’m afraid, I’ll DM you on Twitter.
Yeah you do that. That’d be much better! 🙂
Ok I’ll DM you now.
Great post! I love the fact that you highlighted Sing Street. Such a wonderful film.
Hi Steph, glad you love Sing Street too! I just added another song I absolutely adore from that movie. Definitely one of my fave soundtracks of all time.

Ah, Falling Slowly. Gets me every time!
Oh man. Matthew Goode and the great music really saves that movie. It was pretty charming and the landscapes were absolutely gorgeous
