Complete your Thrillbilly collection.
More Songs About Drinking and Women.
The followup to the superb "Moveable Feast" is a stinging disappointment, simply put. This is the last Thrillbilly album, as the band has chosen to break up and this is a weak set to go out with. The songs are okay, but the energy is gone and the great mix of melody, seering guitar riffs, and pounding rhythm section are nowhere to be found.
There are drinking songs to carouse to, and there are drinking songs to listen to at 4am while you pour out another whiskey and your mind turns over what could’ve been, or where you could get cigarettes at this hour. Taken from Gillian Welch’s exquisite, bleak 1998 album, Hell Among the Yearlings, Whiskey Girl falls into the latter category-and ho. Sophie Harris. Our drinking list oscillates between the celebratory and the self-loathing, between songs for drinking and songs about drinking. Frankly, I’m not sure where to file this gem from 2006.
Here are 15 of our favourite songs about drinking. But it’s more likely that the tune was dedicated to a specific malt liqueur, Heublein’s Brass Monkey, sales of which exploded after the song was released. Best line: ‘Because I drink it anytime and anyplace When it’s time to get ill I pour it on my face’. Back in the day, Noel Gallagher told Q magazine that there was an underlying theme for the album ‘Definitely Maybe’, which was: ‘Let’s have it’. All the songs dream about leaving Manchester and running away to the sunshine with a pint in hand. Best line: ‘You gotta make it happen!’ crossfitoneshot.
Exploring Wine, Women & Songs: Ten Of The Greatest Drinking Songs Recorded By Women from a golden era of music. But when it comes to making a list of the best songs sung by women about drinking and/or being drunk, the pickings are comparatively slim. Take a look, for example, at the 4 CD compilation Drunk: 100 Smashed Hits. A mere nine of the hundred are sung by women. Now that’s more like it. DRINKING AGAIN – Dinah Washington (1962). Few singers, if any, could sing about liquor with as much panache as The Queen, whose best records effortlessly straddled the worlds of jazz, blues, R & B and pop. Alas, it was alcohol, combined with pills, that killed her in 1963 at the age of 39. This song, recorded less than two years before her demise, finds her falling off the wagon, hitting her old haunts, having a few and wishing that you were here.
The second Talking Heads album in their discography, and a very important one, the Talking Heads would work with Brian Eno to develop a more electronic sound. Yet mostly acoustic songs like Take Me To The River and Found A Job stick out. More Songs About Buildings and Food Q&A. Engineering Rhett Davies. Artwork by Jimmy De Sana. Mixing on "Found a Job" Ed Stasium.
On More Songs about Buildings and Food, David Byrne sings the word feelingssssss with a puppy’s yelp that turns into a snaky hiss.
