I never could see why American culture - especially pop culture - is so in love with the Irish.

There are more Germans here than Irish.

Unless it's just that their native language is English.

"Stately, plump Buck Mulligan . . ."

OK, maybe not.

On the other hand, American commercial beers are modeled on Pilsner and not Stout.

A tremendous German - well, Bohemian - victory!

Germany has some great pop music, and I've posted some of it here -- but obviously the language is a barrier to some people.

Mmm beer.

Is it just me or does this version of the song sound very sImilar musically to "Wha'll Be King But Charlie"?

Is it just that they are newer versions of older songs?

Since both of the root songs are old enough to be considered "traditional" how can you tell which one borrowed the tune from which?

I'm certainly no expert. I suspect most traditional music is full of borrowings in all directions.
