Monday’s Music Moves Me: Bourbon, Beer and Watermelon Wine

Yay guys, it’s Monday. My week is off to a great start with a long walk again this morning at day activities. I am snacking on cheese twists, because after all my husband moved the scale to the attic so it won’t show if I’ve gained weight. No, seriously I do still try to lose weight, but I’m allowed a cheat.

Monday also means it’s time for Monday’s Music Moves Me. Last week, I flaked out as I couldn’t think of songs to add. The theme was free choice, but still I wasn’t that musically-inclined. But now I am.

The theme for this week is songs with beverages in the title. Immediately, alcoholic beverages came to mind. I don’t drink alcohol, but I just love a good ol’ drinking song.

The first song I’m going to share is my favorite Blackberry Smoke song. Unlike with most other southern rock bands, I was the first in our home to discover Blackberry Smoke and introduced it to my husband rather than the other way around. This song is explicit, so a rather stark contrast to the nursery rhumes I shared two weeks ago, but who cares?

Next, I originally wanted to share Sweet Tequila, which I know from the German country band Truck Stop but was pretty sure of there’d be an English-language version. I couldn’t find it, nor could I find the Truck Stop version on YouTube, so I had to move on. Here then is a song I’m probably not the only one sharing. It’s one of several truly funny Dubliners songs.

Now that we’re talking beer anyway, I just got to share this song by Tom T. Hall.

I didn’t originally intend on posting more than one song by the same artist, but I just got to share this other Tom T. Hall song. Not because I like it, but because it means I can craft a nice title for this post.

  1. This is quite the departure from nursery songs! Just goes to show that you are well-rounded 🙂

    I hadn’t heard of Blackberry Smoke before, but I really like their sound. Tom T Hall was fun to listen to as well.

    Thanks for playing along today!

  2. Well, girl I think you’re quite mewsically diversed, just look…you’ve gone from nursery rhymes to drinking songs? lol Seriously, your selections spinning in the jukebox are all new-to-me, except for Tom T. Hall’s “I Like Beer”. It’s purrfectly find that you found two songs by Hall. Sometimes I find multiple songs by the same artist to include on my weekly playlists. Great fun! Have a boogietastic & blessed week! 😉

  3. These were all new to me, although I had listened to “I Like Beer” on another blog this week. That’s quite a range you’ve shown in the last couple of weeks, and I have to say, I enjoyed Son of the Bourbon. And the Dubliners are so right. Listening to them made Tom T Hall sound he had an Irish accent – what was up with that? Well done!

  4. Great song choices! My hubby used to be in a country band when we lived in PA where they played at Amvets and Eagles – every time they played, there would be someone who requested the Tom T. Hall song, “I Like Beer”, so that was extra fun to listen to. 😉 Hope you’re having a great weekend! 🙂
