Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.
1) Are you of Irish descent? I am adopted, so not sure.
2) Legend has it that the heroine of this week's Irish ballad was a real lass. 17th century birth and burial records confirm that a woman with that name lived in Dublin. Can you think of another song about a real historic figure? The only song coming to mind is Elton John's Goodbye England's Rose about Princess Diana.
3) Molly sold fish from a cart that she wheeled through the streets. What's the last seafood you ate? fish
4) The lyrics tell us that, after her death, her ghost continues to wander the streets of Dublin with her wheel barrow. Do you believe in ghosts? I haven't had any experiences with them.
5) This week's featured band, The Dubliners, are obviously from Dublin. They were introduced to American audiences on The Ed Sullivan Show. Today, Stephen Colbert tapes his show in The Ed Sullivan Theater. Who hosted the last talk show you watched? Probably Kathie Lee and Hoda.
6) Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick's Day dish. Is it a favorite of yours? no
7) According to Irish legend, leprechauns earned the gold in the pot they guard by repairing shoes. Crazy Sam can't remember the last time she got a pair of shoes repaired. When the heels wear away, she discards the shoes and buys new ones. What about you? Do you get your shoes fixed (either by leprechauns or just by ordinary repairmen)? I do not think I have ever had a pair of shoes fixed. Is that expensive? I would think it would be expensive.
8) Do you look good in green, the signature color of St. Patrick's Day? I look ok, but I have green eyes, so I feel like that is a lot of green. It was my favorite color in college, so I wore it all of the time.
9) Random question: Did you more recently sneeze or cough? I believe sneeze...I am starting to have allergies.
