Songfacts®:

  • This is the another song from the 2007 film and later award winning stage musical Legally Blonde. Like the rest of the score, "Ireland" was written by the husband and wife team of Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Both contributed to the music and lyrics.

    At the end of the previous song, "Positive", Elle decides to go brunette and visits a whacky hairdresser, Orfeh, who sings her this rather unusual song about pretending she's in Ireland with Enya and the whales. >>
