t -- thank you for reminding us that Larry rated female companionship of a sort with at least one of the Honeys. Maybe he wasn't searching and searching for it like a parched cowboy looking for a cool oasis out there on the horizon.

The Sons of the Pioneers, "Cool Water", 1947



Johnny Cash, "Cool Water", 2010



Plus the Oscar Peterson Trio's jaunty version of the theme from The Days of Wine and Roses, a very un-jaunty movie.

Brooke Fraser, who suspects her water has been tampered with.

Not to be a killjoy, but with the weekend upon us, here's a couple of "Public Service Announcements":

Well, lots more songs about liquid refreshments today, even including a couple public service announcements, compliments of Lisa. Good advice for Cinco de Mayo celebrants and those who enjoy weekend festivities, remembering not to overdo it or to have a designated driver or taxi.  

bonnie, thanks for those fine songs by a couple excellent kiwi artists, Bic Runga and Brooke Fraser. It's unfortunate that they've not yet hit the airwaves in the US yet (and perhaps elsewhere too), because they both sound quite good. I really liked Bic Runga's lovely interpretation of Dylan's "One More Cup of Coffee".

D.A.N., glad you added UB40's reggae version of "Red Red Wine". I like it better than Neil Diamond's original.

t, good find with the Syndicate of Sound's lesser-known release, though it certainly doesn't measure up to their mid-60s classic, "Little Girl".

kds, a whole bunch of beverage-focused partying songs, including one of my favorites, "It's Five O'clock Somewhere"! I'd not previously heard the entertaining Buffett/Keith karaoke song, but then I don't listen to much country radio (only when my wife listens) or to much Toby Keith. You guessed right about Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup". It's a catchy party song, but I've heard it way too many times around younger crowds. "Blood Pollution" -- downer lyrics, wasn't previously familiar with the song or the movie.

Larry, good recollections with the two versions of "Cool Water", especially the old Sons of the Pioneers version. Too bad our former long-time blueboarder and past BOTB regular, Roy Roger(s) Bridge, no longer frequents our community here after a serious illness. That jazzy version of "The Days of Wine & Roses" by Oscar Peterson is delightful -- even if the excellent film from the early 60s was depressing because of the lead character's decline into alcoholism.


Finally, to commemorate the annual passing of Cinco de Mayo, here's a triple play of songs about what is perhaps the favorite Mexican distilled beverage, starting out with a tame oldie, progressing through some Cinco de Mayo partying, and leading up to a recent entertaining tale about what can happen if consumed to excess:

First, this classic rock and roll oldie:


Then, for the rockers in the crowd:


Finally, for those who prefer a modern country music perspective and a bit of the slippery slope (for those amused by such a PG13-rated song, be sure to stick around for the twist ending in the video):



Have a good weekend, everyone. Don't forget to cast your votes if you haven't done so already, and please add any more beverage-themed songs that you'd like to throw into this week's mix.

in parting for now, here's what Weird Al's dad has to say on this week's theme:

Not so fast, Tom.

Nick & Mary Yankovic's son, Alfred Matthew "Weird Al" Yankovic, was born and raised in California.

Frankie Yankovic (no relation) is a Cleveland legend!

Thanks for the timely correction, t! I thought I had heard in the past that Frankie was Weird Al's dad. After seeing your correction and checking on line, I see that Frankie was just a key musical influence on Al, along with the memorable accordionist, Myron Floren, from the old Lawrence Welk TV show. Polka, anyone? Wunnerful, wunnerful!

Almost forgot:

The Who, "Whiskey Man", A Quick One (1966) aka Happy Jack (1967) (written by John Entwistle)



Plus their two brief endorsements of Coke from around the same time:

Larry,

You beat me to it with the early Who.  

Here's the centerpiece of the 2nd half of Quadrophenia, Dr. Jimmy because "he only comes out when I drink my gin!!!"

Here is a vintage song to savor, neither fruity nor acidic, still, it has not aged well.



Buzz "don't kill the messenger" Clique

                       1)George Thorogood.....Thoroughly good from start to finish!

              
                       2)The Beach Boys.......A real fun track from their first lp.I like  how you get an early read on their personalties eg."Brians got his ear to the radio" or "Denny wants to know whats under the hood"


                       3)Eric Burden and War...A decent track but not as enjoyable as the first two



                     4)Tennessee Whiskey...I like George Jones version so much better

That innocent ingénue Lana Del Rey apparently prefers soft drinks, such as "Diet Mountain Dew" and "Cola":



I'm gonna pass on posting her "Cola", as Tipper Gore's PMRC (remember them?) would probably not approve of its lyrics or would at least want it labeled Parental Advisory.

On a more wholesome note, here's an old Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra classic:
