Rat Pack

Post by Henry Chinaski » Mon Apr 14, 2003 4:41 pm

THe live recordings of the Rat Pack is perfect to drink to. Especially when Dean sings, Drink to me only. There's something about listening to music that is performed by singers that are getting loaded right along with you.

Stevie Ray Vaughn plays some good Texas blues.

Old bluesmen. Leadbelly, Robert Johnson (especially "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom"), Muddy Waters ...

Or Neil Young - preferably the stuff he wrote after Danny Whitten died, or the "After the Goldrush" album.

Social Distortion is great to get ripped to, if you like this type of music., which I do. Some of the later stuff isn't as good as the first couple of albums. I got a reissue of their first record on clear vinyl in the late 80's.

No argument here

I like the suggestions so far (although Mettalica and Rammstein might be a little off-putting if one is trying to have a little "hair of the dog.")
However, it should be mentioned that certain songs (or musical genres) go well with certain drinks:
For a good old fashioned drunken blowout The Pogues, The Dubliners or The Chieftans (amongst others) provide a fine arm raising rhythm.
For sudden drinking frenzies The Wonderstuff, Blink 182 or Blur (amongst others) impart a certain esprit de corps.
For a reflective "fuck'em all" session the inestimable Mr Waits, Hank Williams (pere et fils) or even Bob Dylan (amongst others) cannot be beaten.
And for all purpose boozing a combination of Oasis, The Fall and The Beautiful South (again, amongst others) rate as personal favourites.
But on the whole, isn't conversation the cornerstone of tying one on?

What's more

Post by Henry Chinaski » Wed Apr 16, 2003 3:00 am

And sometimes silence is the best companion. Nothing goes better with a Jack on the rocks then a moment of quiet contempulation with an old friend across the table who also understands that mindless chatter need not fill every social moment. What is the greater cement to any friendship than that unspoken understanding?

Yeah, on my first warm day off this season, I'm gonna start drinking at half past noon and listen to Social Distortion out on my porch until I pass out.

Tsk, tsk!

So late? My dear fellow, invest in an alarm clock. You'll waste far less time with Morpheus and will, therefore, have more time to spend with Bacchus!

When drinking in a crowd, I found that I had an embarrassing tendency to dig out the old disco records, and try to dance. Have thrown them out. Next on the trash it list is the old sentimental pop crap from my youth--that I drag out when I'm drinking alone.

Albert Collins is a good guy to spin. (I ain't drunk, I'm just drinkin'...)

All I Wanna Do by Sheryl Crow may not be a great song, but it's one of the best odes to drinking in the history of pop music.
