4-20-09 One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer

Posted by Sean on April 20, 2009

Wow. We’ve gone from megalomaniacal hairpieces to the social benefits of public drunkeness in one night. I think that’s some kind of record.

Keeping with the current boozy theme, here’s a song that’s practically an incantation to intoxication: One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, by John Lee Hooker.

Turns out George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers do a pretty mean version of this song, too.

Ballroom Blitz

Posted by shanoah on April 20, 2009

Well, it’d ruin the whole pun if I picked out a third song about toupees, so I’ll play Ballroom Blitz instead.

Sadly, I first got turned on to this song due to Wayne’s World, which had a brilliant cover of it by Tia Carrere, who’s not only hot but does great vocals. Could have done without the voiceovers in this clip, and without the transition from a hot, sexy lady to Wayne in his underwear, but the song still rocks.

Of course, the original by Sweet was pretty good, too.Even if they are all wearing really bad glam rock costumes. (Sadly, I think Bowie is a much better dresser. Both normally and as Ziggy Stardust.)
