Atomic Cocktail
















Hey ho, let's go.

We're almost towards the end of the supplement to Big Rock Candy Mountain's Top 100 Drinking Songs. Don't forget, come next week, the Top 100 will move to it's permanent home over here, and we'll feature full length posts on individual songs or artists that fit the mold.

'Til then, we'll continue counting up through the songs that didn't make the Top 100, but got votes. There are a couple of thousand of great songs we aint even scratched the surface of yet, so this should be fun. If you don't like what you see here, put your bottle where your mouth is. Tell us about your favorite drinking song.

I've finally found a place where I can take it
all this loneliness you left behind
On a mountain that's no hill for a climber
Just one step up, sit back and pour the wine

I climb up on barstool mountain
High above your world where there's no pain
And I'm the king of barstool mountain
Pretending I don't love you once again

At closing time I step down off the mountain
I'm strong enough to make it without you
I know that I'll be right back here tomorrow
Too weak to sober up and face the truth
and...

I climb up on barstool mountain
High above your world where there's no pain
And I'm the king of barstool mountain
Pretending I don't love you once again

Looking forward to hearing "Loser's Cocktail" by Dick Curless. Never heard it, but it sounds like a winner among losers.

Dick Curless rocks and I roll, my amigos. That song should've been top ten.
