You pour your father a scotch, and yourself the same. Take the first sip, and begin talking about women.

2. Cheap Trick - "Surrender" - Listen here

3. Harry Nilsson - "Jump Into The Fire" - Listen here
Your father needs another scotch.

4. The Kinks - "(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman" - Listen here
A conversation about late-era Kinks vs. early Kinks ends poorly, much like last Thanksgiving's conversation on gays in the military.

5. Nick Lowe - "I Love The Sound of Breaking Glass" - Listen here
You explain to you father how Nick Lowe basically wrote Elvis Costello's best song. You need more scotch.

6. Stevie Wonder - "Boogie On Reggae Woman" - Listen here
It is agreed that everyone loves Stevie Wonder, and that those who say they don't are clearly assholes.

More scotch.

8. David Bowie - "Golden Years" - Listen here
Your father tells you that story about the time he almost saw David Bowie in concert.

9. Big Star - "Feel" - Listen here
Your dad used to get stoned to this album. It seems like he's bringing this up a lot, but you really don't wanna share your stash with him.

10. Fleetwood Mac - "Rhiannon" - Listen here
More scotch.

11. Steely Dan - "Bad Sneakers" - Listen here
Dad's eyes are getting heavy. He's talking about some show on television that you've never heard of and you're pretty sure he made up.

12. Harry Nilsson - "Coconut" - Listen here
Take the bottle of scotch, and leave your father passed out on the kitchen table to by found by your mom in the morning.
