i’ll wait for you till i turn blue
there’s nothin’ more a man can do
don’t get your bollocks in a twist
settle down, don’t take a fit
(“salty dog” from the album swagger, 2000)
for those of you who have never heard of flogging molly, get out there and buy a cd! df and i came upon this band when he heard that his former skate hero played accordian for the band. (by the way, the first song in the background of the video is by “the best band ever in the history of bands” according to df! operation ivy) anyway, we saw flogging molly in concert last year during the dublin (ohio) irish festival. you should have seen the crowd…there were punks in kilts and grandparents toting toddlers around. the appeal of the band, to say the least, is widespread. if anything, the music puts you in the mood for something a little green…
