Two Glasses, Joe















Not feeling particularly chatty this time. I'll let the list and songs speak for themselves.

The goal here is to write an individual post for each and every tune. From this list, the Top 100 currently counting down at Big Rock Candy Mountain, and any great drinking songs we missed that you think we should cover. Your suggestions are always welcome. We've already got one brave soul who's come forward with an offer to write some posts. You too can participate. We're a friendly neighborhood bar here.

If you're just stopping by and have no idea what the hell we're talking about, scroll down a bit.

I'll shut up now. I've got a bottle of Scotch and some friends waiting. And you're here for the free tunes anyway, not to read me pattering on.

Thanks for stopping by. Stop back for more fun. We aim to please.

A couple of my new found favs are on todays list. I Drink by Mary Gauthier. It's telling the storyof the second generation getting cronic with your tonic. And it is as matter of fact as "I Drink."
The second one that I really took a liking to while we were judging was Booze and Pills by Fred Eaglesmith. Great account of those who rocked and have fallen. I think he missed Keith Moon.
