Drinking Songs

What do drinking and music have in common? Both of them have their way of connecting people. It comes as no surprise that listening to music makes drinking a lot more fun. Yes, this applies even if you’re the type of person who prefers drinking booze by yourself.

Even the best songwriters and most popular music artists agree. Perhaps it’s true that drinking spurs creativity because there’s no shortage of songs about alcohol. It’s not too farfetched to imagine that songwriters reach for a bottle or two whenever they struggle to come up with the right lyrics.

Interestingly, not all alcohol songs are actually about beer, tequila, or any weird-sounding cocktail. Some of them are upbeat tracks that reminisce about the good ol’ times. Others, meanwhile, are a bit more mellow, often telling a heartbreaking story.

Needless to say, you can relate to a lot of these awesome hits. You probably have your go-to drinking songs already whenever you need to get the party going. But it never hurts to add to your playlist. The next time you feel like indulging yourself with a bit of booze, be sure to listen to these songs about alcohol.
