Requiem for a Dying Song

  • In this song Flogging Molly take a stab at the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. In an interview with the Herald Tribune, leader/vocalist Dave King explained that recording the album in his native Ireland enabled his band to spread their wings and try different things: "That's what was great about moving back to Ireland, and seeing what's happening in Iraq and having a new perspective. It's just so wrong. If lessons can be learned in Ireland, it can certainly happen anywhere. We really needed to move back. It was good for our writing because it brought it all back home. It opened our eyes a lot."
