Inspired by the fact I was going to go spend a few days in a "dry" state, I was inspired to put together a play list that I call "Songs about Drinking." Here's what I had available on my computer or popped in my head and quickly downloaded from itunes. I need a few more songs to round out a CD. Anyone?

Drinking Wine, Spo Dee O Dee - Andy Kirk & His Clouds of Joy
Dry County - The B-52's
All I Wanna Do - Sheryl Crow
The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me) - Tom Waits
TV Party - Black Flag
All on a Mardi Gras Day - Kermit Ruffins with the Rebirth Brass Band
If The Sea Was Whiskey - Willie Dixon
Debutant Ball - Mike West
Is That All There Is - Peggy Lee
Mint Juleps And Needles - Brenda Kahn

My list is kind of country-heavy, but then so is my iTunes library.

Jimmy Buffet: Margaritaville
Willie Nelson: Whiskey River
Loretta Lynn: Don't Come Home A Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)
The Cramps: Let's Get Fucked Up
Merle Haggard: The Bottle Let Me Down
Hank Williams: There's A Tear In My Beer
The Handsome Family: So Much Wine
George Jones: White Lightning
Black Flag: Six Pack
Dinosaur Jr.: Puke & Cry
The Doors: Roadhouse Blues
Eagles: Tequila Sunrise
Highway 101: Whiskey, If You Were A Woman
Magnetic Fields: The Night You Can't Remember Is The Night I Can't Forget
Merle Haggard: I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink
Van Morrison: Moonshine Whiskey

These are just off the top of my head, I'm sure there are tons more. Because everyone loves to drink!

Mary Gauthier - I Drink
Amy & the Hank Sinatras - Whiskey On The Shelf
Howlin' Wolf - I Asked for Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)
Joni Mitchell - A Case of You
And, of course, that perennially annoying classic, "99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall".
