Introducing The Vote For Ireland's Greatest Singalong Song

Introducing The Vote For Ireland's Greatest Singalong Song

Imagine this: it's your first night out after normality has returned and you find yourself in a packed club soaked in pub juices.

The music fades and the chorus of "one more tune" belts out around the venue. The DJ will oblige, but only if everyone sings along. Friends, what song would you choose for that very moment?

Here at The Rewind, we are tasking the people of Ireland to vote for the nation's favourite singalong song.

Over the course of the next week or so, we'll be running through a long list of nominees that you can vote on, before whittling it down to a last 16 bracket which will begin on Monday. The competition will be halved everyday next week until an overall winner is crowned on Friday, with the title of Ireland's Greatest Singalong Song bestowed upon them.

The rules are simple: the artist of the song must be Irish and artist can only have ONE song in the last 16.

Remember, we aren't looking for the BEST Irish song ever, or else we'd be here until the next pandemic. For this public vote, we're looking for the one song that you want to scream from the top of your lungs whilst your interlocked with your friends.
