So what’s this song got to do with Triathlon? Absolutely nothingexcept it’s a good little tune to have on in the background during a gut wrenching spin session.
This Great Big Sea tune is featured in the Russell Crowe movie State of Play during one of the opening scenes as Crowe’s character Cal McAffrey is driving along on his way to the scene of a murderhis radio is belting out “Paddy Murphy” as McAffrey sings along and slaps to the beat on his steering wheel. Not a bad flickand certainly a deadly tune.
ApparentlyCroweand the boys from GBS have become tight drinking buddiesin fact GBS front man Allen Doyle makes an appearance in Crowes new version of Robin Hood .
This is a live version of the same tune. Listen and enjoy.
