Father’s Day Extended Mix

at

Sunday is Father’s Day!

Every year, we give away a 25 euro Golden Discs voucher to ONE paterfamilias on Fathering Sunday.

All we ask from you is a tune your old man (living or tooling about in the great shed in the sky) would like to hear (in his good ear) on the big day.

We already have 33 songs selected from last week (see below).

This is your very last chance to tell your da you love him through the medium of choonage.

To enter, please complete this sentence:

‘Could you please play____________________________for my father on Father’s Day because it reminds him of___________________________________’

Lines MUST close at 6.15pm

    Could you please play UB40s “Red Red Wine” for my father on Father’s Day because it reminds him of when he had me and my brother tied to a tree at Slane in 84 surrounded by a cloud of smoke while they grooved along to Santana, Dylan and the aforementioned UB40

        The baby seat he rigged up on the motorbike to go to gigs with us may have been additional grounds to call. The phone was too high on the wall for us to reach at the time though.

        1. Janet, I ate my Avatar

          my Da used to put fake dog poos around in fun places like your shoes, your dolls lap, or your box of biscuits or in your bed for the craic. He fashioned them himself out of putty and they glistened just so…very realistic

          1. Janet, I ate my Avatar

            the only poo that turned out to be real was the bag of ” chocolate buttons” my brother gave me…he had replaced them with rabbit poo,
            inventive huh?
            Don’t worry I got him back

  3. Janet, I ate my Avatar

    Can you please play A boy named Sue by Johnny Cash for my Da as he has the same sense of humour as the auld fella in the song

          1. ivan

            First gig i was ever at was Tommy’n’Liam in, I think, the Gaiety; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, they may have fupped up every now and then, but THAT was seriously good jaysusin’ parenting.

          2. Otis Blue

            The ever reliable Alan Gilsenan did I a great documentary – The Yellow Bittern – on Liam Clancy.

            He led quite the life

    ‘Could you please play Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks for my father on Father’s Day because it reminds him of Mother who passed away last september, please? (was her favourite song and now makes me cry because it was the song they played as her coffin was lowered into the crematorium)

  6. Starina

    Could you please play “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash for my father on Father’s Day because it reminds ME of the time we were driving through Folsom and he wouldn’t let me play “that country music” even though I begged.

  7. Johnny Keenan

    Could you please play ‘hello patsy fagan’ for my father on Father’s Day because he does a great rendition of it and it always cheers him up when he thinks of his life in Manchester before he met my mother.
    He never says it, but I’m great
    at reading

    “Yes, I’m so proud when you are with me,
    That my heart digs in my throat.
    And when you stop to strut your stuff,
    My eyes go all afloat.
    And when I have to leave you home
    As sometimes it must be.
    I feel that with my leaving
    I leave far too much of me.”

  12. realPolithicks

    I’m sending this on behalf of my daughters….‘Could you please play Carolina In My Mind by James Taylor for my father on Father’s Day because it reminds him of when we used to drive to North Carolina to visit our cousins and he would always play it as we crossed the state line.

  15. Bertie Blenkinsop

    Can you play “Driving home for Christmas” for my Da on Father’s day.
    He was working in Limerick for a few months in 1982 and remembers this song on the radio as he drove back home to us.
    It wasn’t released until 1988 so please play it for my Da, Doctor Who.

  16. seimiq

    Yeah, a little bit late here but can I suggest this one..
    https://youtu.be/3llvPIj_29g
    It came on the radio during a long drive years ago, and my dad acted pretty unimpressed until the ‘owner is a mental midget with the IQ of a fencepost’ line. He splurted out a huge laugh and nearly drove us off the road..
    Must have reminded him of a few people he’d known.
