Drink Yourself Silly (Pipe Dreams)

As I mentioned on Monday, last weekend was pretty rough. There are parts I don't remember, and parts I wish I didn't remember. All in all, it was quite embarrassing, but I learned the following...

I basically have four different personalities that accompany increasing levels of alcohol: Funny Sonny, Douche Sonny, Vomit Sonny, and Sad Sonny. What about Horny Sonny? Well, he is a permanent fixture, with or without drinks, so let's assume him to be a constant variable equal to just plain Sonny. Along with Total Nerd Alert Sonny.

Anyway, I mention this because the "songs about drinking" playlist below is a reflection of all four personalities. Some tracks are fun, some are obnoxious, others are sad, and one promotes puking. I've been using a lot lately, so I stuck to their "rule" of picking 45 songs for a playlist. I know I'm missing a lot of "major" drinking songs, but the ones below somehow made sense in my mind in terms of telling a story. A story? Yes, I take mix CDs way too seriously.

So click on "Continue Reading" below, check out the drinking mix, and pour yourself a glass. Of V8. Because drinking is bad for you. Leave a comment, and let me know what you think!

(Just want to reiterate, if you like a song below, please support the band and purchase a track or two or twelve. Thanks!)

Hi Anon 10:48,
You are a god/goddess as well!

Hi NYOne,
Thanks. Only cause you are too good to me. =) Any songs you think I left out?

Hey Steve,
I didn't even realize it was 4/20 until you mentioned it! Totally out of it. But then again, I don't really smoke pot. Glad you liked the mix!

Hey Anon 12:44,
Best comment ever. =)

Hi Anon 3:06,
Wow, I don't know if it's worth the 75 day wait! But it seems to be working well over here. Hope it's going faster now.

Hey Megan,

Hi Vaedri,
Thanks, what was your fav?

Looks like a great mix and there's quite a few I haven't heard before from artists that I have, so that's always nice. But there's just so many, any particular recommendations? Say a more manageable top 5?
p.s. whenever someone asks someone else about favs, it always makes me think of kevin bacon

Interesting theme for a mix. Very appropriate for my Friday nights. And Saturday nights. And Sunday nights. Ahem, yeah.

You are what officially amounts to a Basher, the glory is yours. Incredible mix, you're my new favorite person in the world! Only one song I'd add, and that's "I've Been Drinking" from Jeff Beck, makes me cry everytime. Boo-Hoo . . Cheers for your awesomeness . . .

I would add a couple of the best drinking songs I know, both by Uncle Tupelo - Whiskey Bottle and I Got Drunk. I might also add Jimmy Buffett's Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw.

You. Are. Great. I raise my glass of (water, or preferred colorless beverage) to you.

I think providing the zip file was your best idea ever...I haven't listened to the whole list yet but I'm loving you included Tubthumping and Whiskey River. I know you were inspired to limit your list because of (great site, btw) but I wanted to mention my favorite drinking song of all time, Metallica's version of "Whiskey in the Jar" and Jerry Jeff Walker's "Sangria Wine".

Looking forward to the next Musical Monday!
