A Little Irish Cheer

Posted by Simple Dude | Posted in Holidays | Posted on 17-03-2012

When I was a very young kid people still listened to vinyl records.  And even some 8-tracks, although those were quickly replaced by plain old cassettes – which sounded like crap.

My parents had a 45 record of The Unicorn Song by The Irish Rovers and I remember playing it over and over…   seems like a good St. Patrick’s Day song.

Does anyone else remember this??  I don’t have kids (that I know of) but someday when I do, this song will be part of their childhood.

It’s much better than any Barney crap right?

And listening to the song again I remembered something… the song actually made me kind of sad when I was a kid.  I was too young to realize that unicorns are mythological and never actually existed.

(Well, outside of my sex dreams anyway… don’t ask)

So this song made me sad that unicorns were left behind, so I’d never get a chance to see one.  Stupid huh?  I will have to drown out that sad memory with lots of green beer today.
