Green or Irish

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15759)

I put this mix together to cover a 75-minute class for another instructor - since it was on St. Patrick's Day, I decided to use it as a theme. The song had to be by an Irish artist/group or the title/group had to have 'Green'. The class seemed to like it - no one walked out in the middle of the class! All the songs (except Body - Funky Green Dogs) were found on the iTunes (Canada) music store. Body is from a cycling CD I purchased years ago.

I used a white-board/dry erase marker (green) and wrote up on the mirrors at front of studio "Green" and "Irish". I also drew some shamrocks. I told the class the theme and had them pick whether the song was 'green' or 'Irish'. They also had to give the name of the song and/or group to avoid having them just guess wildly. I was going to divide the class into teams, but due to the Spring Break, class size was small so I opted not to do teams.
