The Minstrel Boy (Joe Strummer & the Mescalaros)

I love this song – particularly this rendition, as heard at the end of Black Hawk Down. (Seriously: if you haven’t seen the movie, you need to. And the book is a must-read.)

“The Minstrel Boy”

I already really like this song – it’s one of the most rousing battle songs ever written – so it was a pleasure to hear it played during the end credits of Black Hawk Down (2001). This particular arrangement is one of my favorites.
