Brian’s Mixtape #26: Down In One

Brian at home

I expect you’re wondering what Brian’s excuse is this time?

The silly old owl asked for your suggestions for drinking songs on his twitter @LordBrianWilson on Monday, then duly spent the day glugging acorn wine while listening to them. It was a ‘scientific test to determine their suitability for purpose’, he tells us.

Now we don’t, for a moment, wish to suggest that the average For Folk’s Sake reader is a terrible lush, but we did get an awful lot of replies to Brian’s request for song suggestions. So Brian’s consumption of acorn wine went on rather longer than he had anticipated and he ended up rather tired and emotional.

Brian spent yesterday mainly groaning, and was in no fit state to communicate with the outside world. But today, finally, here is a thoroughly chastised Brian’s 26th playlist entitled “Down In One”.

  1. George Jones – White Lightning
  2. The Magnetic Fields – Too Drunk to Dream
  3. Nancy Sinatra – Summer Wine
  4. Mary Gauthier – I Drink
  5. The Leisure Society – We Were Wasted
  6. Roger Miller – Chug-A-Lug
  7. Florence + The Machine – Hurricane Drunk
  8. The Broken Family Band – The Booze and The Drugs
  9. Tunng – With Whiskey
  10. The Divine Comedy – Gin Soaked Boy
  11. Grantura – Hymn For A Drunk
  12. Tom Waits – The Piano Has Been Drinking [Not Me]

    If there is to be a coming down/drying out mix, could we have The Handsome Family – So Much Wine?
    Cheers, so to speak!

    Hi Brian your mixtapes are really the best and I’d be really grateful if you could send me an invite for Spotify :)

    Why thank you. Flattery will get you everywhere. An invite should be winging its way to you shortly.

      Eeek I’m really sorry to nag you but I haven’t received the invite yet? Unless it hasn’t been sent out yet, in which case I’m sorry for my impatience :)
