Something to warm the cockles of your heart (and ears) #Whiskey #themed

I have a confession, I really love old timey Americana and country music.  I love the scratchy sounds of heart-felt tunes recorded in the 1920-40s.  I love the wit, wisdom and humour of those old tunes, and the likes of Gillian Welch, Laura Cantrell and Paul Burch who write and record with an old-yet-modern heart.

Whiskey figures as a double measure in many of these songs, and, as my Christmas gift to you all, I’ve created a playlist that celebrates the Dubious Whiskey Wisdom? of this genre.

  1. Whiskey is the life of man – Bellowhead
  2. Whisky in the jar – Thin Lizzy
  3. Honky Tonkin – Hank Williams
  4. Cigarettes, Whiskey and wild women – The Sons of the Pioneers
  5. The Sideboard Song – Chas ‘N’ Dave
  6. Bubbles in my beer – Tracey Dear
  7. Whiskey bottle – Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys
  8. Knockin’ over Whiskeys – Hayes Carll
  9. Drank up all the whiskeys – The Biscuit Burners
  10. If I was Whisky and you was a duck – Jelly Roll Morton
  11. Whiskey in my Whiskey – The Felice Brothers
  12. The Whiskey makes you sweeter – Laura Cantrell
  13. Tennessee Whiskey – Bradley Gaskin
  14. Tear my stillhouse down – Gillian Welch
  15. Closing time – Tom Waits
  16. Lord, blow the moon out please – Hem
  17. Alabama song (Whiskey song) – Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht.

To accompany your listening, why not make a Nigel Slater’s hot toddy and relax.
