Weekly Mixtape: Kiss me, I’m wasted

It’s beer-soaked. It’s shamrocked. It’s the only day of the year when it’s socially acceptable to wear green on green on green. St. Patrick’s Day holds a very special place in the heart of the average university student — the one day of the year where it’s absolutely expected, no excuses, to drink yourself silly into fall-off-your-chair inebriation and act like an absolute animal. From the crucial moments of pre-gaming for the pub-goers, weighed down with Mardi-Gras-inspired plastic jewellery and Dollar Store bauble headbands, having a playlist of drinking anthems on repeat is part of a successful and complete St. Paddy’s Day experience. This mixtape offers – as a homage to losing your balance, hooking up with your childhood neighbour, having severely decreased depth perception, and being unable to enunciate – a slew of hard-hitting drinking songs.
