    Uncle Tupelo- "I Got Drunk", "Whiskey Bottle" or "Moonshiner". Then of course, The Pogues- "Streams of Whiskey"

    Anything sad by Sinatra.
    My woman, sure. My chainsaw, maybe. My dog or my whiskey, never.

    Re: Have a favorite song to listen while sipping?

    Don't usually get the chance to listen to music while I'm drinking. When I do, it's usually jazz. Not the funky stuff, and not the elevator stuff either. The in-between stuff. Nice smooth jazz that you can just sit back in your chair and go, "Ahhhhhhhh". Gerald Albright-Georgia On My Mind, Chris Botti-One For My Baby, Fourplay-Slow Slide, Free Range & Sunday Morning, Dave Grusin-Serengeti Walk, Mountain Dance. These are just a few of many that I like. Try it. You'll like it! Joe

    PS If I had to pick one, (because of the nature of the song/bourbon) it would be Chris Botti, One For My Baby.

    Pull out the Vinyl and toss on Kinda Blue. Miles sets the mood for much consumption and relaxation.Any song will do here, but if I had to pick, it'd be "So what"... Trains solo is a classic. IMHO.

    I like Jimmy Buffett's "A Pirate Looks at Forty", even though
    for me, forty is a distant and fading memory.

    Billie Holiday ... "Fine & Mellow" ... this one video demonstrates everything that is truly magical to me about music.

    My musical taste is very, very eclectic. At the present time, I'm playing punk rock with some guys. But sipping some fine bourbon, this is what I dig ...
