War is Stupid

Posted by shanoah on May 2, 2009

You watch Rush Limbaugh? And if it helps, when I listen to IRA songs, they usually are songs from the old IRA, which signed a treaty with Britain, forming Northern Ireland, and not the later IRA that wasn’t satisfied with the treaty.

Ah, well, if we’re going to keep playing IRA songs, the original copy of Óró sé do bheatha ‘bhaile that I posted, as sung by Sinead O’Connor has gone where most youtube videos go, so I may as well post Darach Ó Catháin singing it[1]. Ever notice that What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor? borrowed its tune from this song?

And you know, with all this talk of war, there are a couple great truths to remember:

1) War is Stupid.

2) People are Stupid.

3) Boy George likes wearing womans clothing.

And here’s a song that exemplifies all three of these truths, The War Song. (and it’s funny how songs I reject posting to the blog end up coming back around and being posted eventually.) 🙂

[1] Yes, there are still plenty of clips with Sinead singing it, but I’ve already heard her singing it quite a few times…
