Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s to a fun, safe day of Irish-flavored reveling. To get you in the mood, here are Irish rock gods, Thin Lizzy performing “Whiskey in the Jar” in 1973.

“Whiskey in the Jar,” a traditional Irish song re-worked by Thin Lizzy, was released in late 1972 and rose to the top of the Irish charts and #6 in the UK. Drink it up.
