Celtic Music- Catchy tunes, Beautiful lyrics, and Great Heritage

My heritage flows back to a lot of German, a bit of English, a trace of American Indian, and a nice enough dollop of Irish and Scotch to make me feel justified in loving all things Irish and Scotch.  One of my favorite things is the Celtic music.  There is nothing I love more then sitting down for some writing while I listen to some Gaelic Storm, Celtic Woman, Orla Fallon or High Kings, or if I am listening to it on my Pandora station, a whole slug of other bands that I have no clue who they are.  What I love most about the Celtic music is the fun and catchy tunes, the beautiful and sometimes quite hilarious lyrics, and the great heritage they make me think of. I just can't resist tapping my foot on the floor or my fingers on the keyboard as I listen to the lively music. Of course there is nothing more fun then when the bands sing the lyrics in Gaeilge and I feel transported back a couple hundred years.  If you have never listened to a fun Celtic tune then I highly recommend you do. It beats a hard rock "song" any old day.
I heard a quote once, "There are two types of people in this world, those who are Irish, and those who wish they were." :)
