US copyright lay is slightly different from Irish law so I can't quote
you all
the legal stuff but the process is usually fairly simple: You contact
record company and the publishing company (they own the rights to the
and the lyrics respectively) sometimes there will be more than one
company involved- the record company will tell you. You'll need to tell
Track Number
Song Title
Duration for clearance
Audience (who they are and how many approximately will hear it!)

That's about it. i hope this helps.


PS Fair Use law is a lot more relexed in the US - If you are using the
music for
educational or non-profit purposes - you're pretty much covered.
