There's the Art Van Damme LP's "Martini Time" and "Manhattan Time" (nice covers, too), and Kay Adams' "Alcohol And Tears" - which you might want to stay away from as it's more on the depressing side with songs like the title track, "I Let A Stranger (Buy The Wine)", "Bottle Baby", and "Who'll Buy The Wine"... gad, I need a drink just from looking at it...

"Lil' Ol' Winedrinker me"-Dean Martin
"Bubbles in my Beer" Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys
There's a great song called "Rye Whiskey" (country tune) that has the lyrics
"If the ocean were whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom and never come UP!" Don't know who sang it tho!
"Old Man Mosey" by Louis Prima involves some debauchary with said title character...
That's all for now, Cherry! Can't wait to see the finished list!

Hi (waves) I'd like to suggest a couple newer songs that might fit the concept depending on musical tastes

Hey bartender - The Blues Brothers

Baby & Me & the bottle makes three - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

One Bourbon, one scotch, one beer and I drink alone - George Thorogood (maybe not, just a suggestion)

and one I think you will like from the requested time period, my main purpose was to suggest this song.

Bottle of wine - The Fireballs

Cherry-

2 more from Sinatra- "I believe in You" -in which he sings of gin & vemouth & also "I get a kick out of you" -which of course contains the classic line "I get no kick from Champagne"

and 1 from Dino, the wonderful "Hey, brother, Pour the wine"

CHEERS!

This is one of my favorite CDs of all time

I got my copy autographed after we played football with the bands roadies outside a bowling alley in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They use to be such a good band until Dave fell in love with an actress...(sigh)

Sorry Cheri, I didn't mean to hijack your thread

the Pepper Harris "I Got Loaded"was 1950.......there's one " (I Got Loaded At) Smokey Joe"s" by Thurston Harris around 1958 that's a fine song.....and "Bottoms Up" by Carl and Pearl Butler (late 60's-early 70's?)
