Brass Monkey—The Beastie Boys

“Cause I drink it anytime – and anyplace/ When it’s time to get ill – I pour it on my face/ Monkey tastes Def when you pour it on ice/ Come on y’all it’s time to get nice”

Too Drunk to Fuck—Nouvelle Vague

“Went to a party/ I danced all night/ I drank sixteen beers/ And I started up a fight/ But now I am jaded/ You’re out of luck/ I’m rolling down the stairs/ Too drunk to fuck”

Jockey Full of Bourbon—Tom Waits

“16 men on a deadman’s chest/ And I’ve been drinking from a broken cup/ 2 pairs of pants and a mohair vest/ I’m full of bourbon; I can’t stand up.”

Southern Heart—The Walkmen

“Family comes from Kentucky/ and there’s bourbon in the blood”

Sway—The Rolling Stones

“Did you ever wake up to find/ A day that broke up your mind/ Destroyed your notion of circular time/ Its just that demon life has got you in its sway”
