St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday marked by celebration. While this year might not feature the traditional parades and big parties at crowded pubs, we can still celebrate the festivities in our own way, starting with the music we listen to.
We decided to help you build your St. Patrick’s Day playlist by figuring out which festive song matches your zodiac sign. Whether they’re tracks about luck or classic Irish tunes, all of these songs are perfect to listen to come March 17.
Aries – “Dirty Old Town” by the Pogues
Aries are energetic and have an undeniable sense of humor, so this track by Celtic punk band the Pogues is perfect for them. It’s all about the fondness someone has for a place, even though they consider it a “dirty old town.” It seems like exactly the type of joke an Aries would make in an attempt to not come off as too sentimental. Plus, it’s the perfect song to blast and scream along to on St. Paddy’s Day.
Taurus – “Rose Tattoo” by Dropkick Murphys
Taurus is a sign that sticks to the classics, so they wouldn’t be caught dead spending a St. Patrick’s Day without listening to Dropkick Murphys. This song is also about someone’s tattoos, and this earth sign definitely has a rebellious side and would adorn their body with some sentimental ink.
Gemini – “Whiskey In The Jar” by Metallica
This Metallica cover of “Whiskey In The Jar” is the perfect song for a party animal like Gemini. Geminis are known for being social and always being down for a good time, so it’s the perfect song to turn up for a group singalong.
Cancer – “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” by Green Day
Cancers are the most sentimental sign and aren’t afraid of a good cry. This Green Day track is the perfect song for them to put on, grab their friends and sing together to celebrate the holiday.
Leo – “High Hopes” by Panic! At The Disco
Leos get a bad rap for being boisterous and loving attention, so they definitely don’t have a confidence problem. “High Hopes” by Panic! At The Disco is the perfect song to celebrate their self-assuredness and faith that luck will be on their side.
Virgo – “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” by the Script
Virgos are another sensitive sign, especially when it comes to grand romantic gestures. This Script song is all about the narrator hoping that the person they love will walk by, which is totally a move that a Virgo would pull. While it isn’t a St. Paddy’s Day hype song, it’s by an Irish rock band and a classic that this sign should return to this March 17.
Libra – “Sunday Bloody Sunday” by U2
This U2 track is all about begging for peace amid the violent clashes happening between the Irish and the British. This track is fit for a Libra, who always tries to weigh the good and bad and find harmony in life.
Scorpio – “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette
While some call it luck, both Scorpios and Alanis Morissette call it “Ironic.” This attitude-laden track filled with vengeful one-liners is perfect for a powerful and passionate Scorpio.
Sagittarius – “Drunken Lullabies” by Flogging Molly
Sagittarius is a sign filled with dreamers, people who want to escape the mess of everyday life and find their happily ever after. This iconic Flogging Molly track is the same—looking for the good old days before war and destruction, hoping that people can just come together and get drunk.
Capricorn – “Zombie” by the Cranberries
The Cranberries made this track in response to the violence happening in Northern Ireland during the Troubles and filled the song with metaphors and symbolism. If you’ve ever been in a fight with a Capricorn, they will pull out all of their facts and logic to make you even question why you were on the other side—and that sophisticated style of protest is seen in the track.
Aquarius – “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” by Dropkick Murphys
Aquarians are unique and love to have fun, so they’d definitely be caught singing this Dropkick Murphys song in a pub while buying everyone a round of shots. The track brings people together, like this sign does in groups they hang around with. It also has some hidden meanings that you have to dig deep to find, like getting an Aquarian to open up to you.
Pisces – “Green Light” by Lorde
Pisces are dreamers and, at times, can be a bit melodramatic. This St. Patrick’s Day, they’ll be seeing green, and it’s only fitting to listen to this track from Lorde’s Melodrama. Feelings just pour out of the song, like the way a drunk Pisces will spill their hearts out to their friends, so we couldn’t think of a more perfect fit.
