Seeing all the commercials and other advertisements for the new Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows movie reminds me of today’s song of the day. The first time that I heard it was in the original Sherlock Holmes movie back in 2009. It also reminds me of a goal that I set about a decade ago to learn at least one Irish drinking song word for word. I do know a couple verses of this jolly tune so far.
YouTube Preview Image The song “Rocky Road to Dublin” is a jig from the 19th century. It tells of a man’s travel experiences on the way to Liverpool. The lyrics were written by D.K. Gavan and it was originally performed by singer Harry Clifton. The Dubliners formed in 1962 and this song was one of their early recordings of 1964. The band will celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2012 with a new CD and a European tour. The Dubliners is an Irish Folk band from Dublin, Ireland.
