That Paddy Was A Saint

The World Cup of Cricket, March Madness, and St. Patrick's Day. This is quite possibly the greatest week ever! Although I am not Irish, I do support most excuses for drunken debauchery. Below is a mix of alcohol inspired songs for all the drunkards this weekend. Don't drink and drive kids!

St. Patrick’s Day Mix:

Yodacock – I Love My Pub
The New Pornographers - The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism (buy)
Nas - Drunk By Myself (buy)
The Fiery Furnaces - Rub-Alcohol Blues (buy)
The Rosebuds - Drunkards Worst Nightmare (buy)
Jimmy Buffett – Why Don't We Get Drunk (buy)
UB40 - Red, Red Wine (buy)
Something Corporate - Drunk Girl (buy)
Tom Heinl – IHOP (buy)
Toby Keith - Get Drunk and Be Somebody (buy)
Busta Rhymes - Pass the Courvoisier (ft. P Diddy & Pharrell) (buy)
Homer Simpson – It Was A Very Good Beer (buy)
Bright Eyes - Drunk Kid Catholic (buy)
The Streets - Too Much Brandy (buy)
A.C. Newman - Drink To Me, Babe, Then (buy)
Bran Van 3000 - Drinking In L.A. (buy)
Amy Winehouse – Rehab (Hot Chip Remix) Chances are good that some will be considering rehab when the Sunday morning hangover kicks in. I have raved about Ms. Winehouse in the past; and now those in the U.S. will finally get a chance to hear the album. Back to Black (buy) hits stores south of the border this week.

Video: Spirit of the West - Home For A Rest. (buy) Many consider this to be the quintessential Canadian drinking song. Unfortunately the argument against it usually gets fuzzy after the fifth round of drinks...


  1. Nice list! A sing-along or fight, or possibly BOTH, are sure to break out.

    Might I also suggest:

    "Lived In Bars" - Cat Power (we've all felt that way, right? right?)

    "Who Drank My Beer (While I Was In the Rear)?" - Buster Poindexter

    "Some Fool's Mess" - Gallon Drunk (never OUR mess, of course!)

    "Bo Diddley" - NOFX (the ultimate beer goggles regret song)

  2. I completely forgot about Lived in Bars! I just was listening to that song the other day. I will definitely take a look at the other three songs you list(especially Gallon Drunk, haven't heard of them).
