Top 10 Drinking Songs

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

drinkingsongs1  After yesterday I figured something fun was in order, and I’ve been wanting to do this post for awhile. If your anything like me (and I pity you if you are) then you enjoy hearing a good song about boozing it up. Although this is not a definitive list it is mine. If you disagree then by all means post your 10 favorites in the comments. The only rule is that it has to be a song about drinking, rather then a song you enjoy while drinking.

1) Friends In Low Place – Garth Brooks

I grew up hearing this song, and maybe that’s why it takes number 1. There’s just something about a song that inspires a drunken chorus that’s fun

2) Sittin at a Bar – Rehab

I have no clue why I enjoy this one, but I always have, and probably always will

3) The More I Drink – Blake Shelton

It’s easy to see a little of myself in this song. Whenever I go out to the bar with my sister I promise myself I’ll only have a beer or two. Next thing I know her friends are buying me drinks to try and I’m bumming a smoke or two from her.

4) Family Tradition – Hank Williams Jr.

Another song that is sung in drunken chorus. Just another ole family tradition.

5) One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer – George Thorogood and the Destroyers

This song doesn’t need any explanation. It’s just that awesome.

6) Margaritaville – Jimmy Buffet

Nothing pairs better with a Corona then this song. In fact it can even make a Corona taste good, and that alone is impressive.

7) I Drink Alone – George Thorogood and the Destroyers

Getting two songs on a top 10 list just shows George knew what went well with booze.

8 ) Watermelon Crawl – Tracy Byrd

Even if it is about wine It’s just a good song.

9) All For Me Grog – The Dubliners

It was hard not to make half this list Irish drinking songs.

10) Solan Der Alte Peter

Anyone who has been to an Oktoberfest has probably sang this song, and even if they didn’t understand it, they loved it.
