Just wondering what your favorite artists or songs to request are.

Mine are:
"The Trial of Lancelot" by Heather Dale
"Cotton-Eyed Joe" by The Chieftains
Anything by Loreena McKennitt
Bagpipe versions of "Amazing Grace", "Scotland The Brave" & "Highland Cathedral"
Anything by The Irish Rovers
"The Pub With No Beer" (ain't that a frighful thought fear.gif ) by The Dubliners
Anyone's version of "Whiskey In The Jar"
"Drunken Sailor" by The Fenians

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Mine are (at the moment):

Dougie MacLean "It Was A' for Our Rightfu' King"
Ed Miller "The Prince of Darkness"
Ian Robb "Garnet's Home Made Beer"
The Irish Descendants "Barrett's Privateers"

I like to request the last two together. The way Macfive as the fading between songs set up you can't tell the ending of one and the beginning of the other so they sound like one song. I'm not sure what it is about that I like so much, I just do....

Generally if something hits my request list, it's not long before it moves from there to my main library. Right now, "Cod Liver Oil" is on the list, and there is another one that will be there as soon as I can remember the title, which I have been hearing the last few days.

Barleyjuice:
Takin' Her Up to Monto
What's Up Yours
Nancy Drinks Tequila
And a few others by them. Plus I'll enjoy pretty much anything else that shows up.

Amadan:
Will Ye Be Proud?
The McBeal Mutiny
And I'll gladly listen just about anything Amadan's put out.

Carbon Leaf:
The Boxer
Desperation Song
So much more to listen to! I'll pull up one of their unrateds, sometimes, 'cause I haven't bought the CD yet.

Gaelic Storm:
South Australia
Lukey
Swimmin' in the Sea
And, of course, I love just about anything they put out.

Bobby Evans:
Good Olde Newfie Outhouse (don' blame me, it's for my girlfriend, not me...she tends to max her requests rather quickly)

Stan Rogers:
The Mary Ellen Carter

That's comprehensive enough. There are others. Prince of Darkness is one of them. I have soem dedicated Amadan streams, so I don't request much at all.

Btw, what's the appeal of Heather Dale's Tristan and Isolte or Trial of Lancelot? I can't figure it out, but those two, plus Loreena McKennit's The Highwayman, really irritate me to no end. I have no clue why, they're about the only laments I dislike. Normally, I love laments. Namely, And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda and The Green Fields of France. Those are beautiful.

Oh, yah, I love Cotton-Eyed Joe by The Chieftains. Reminds me of the music of my youth, listening to the more Southern Mountain music that got played at local dances. Well, and plenty of not-so-local ones. And of the music my dad's band played. Good stuff.

tracked down that other one I need to have on my list,

The Bringers - CelticCircleDanceCupOfWonder

And thanks, Jason =) You reminded me that Silly Wizard's "Donald McGillivry" and "The Blackbird" should be on the list. I haven't been able to find Live Wizardry avaliable yet. I've tried three times to order it.
