It’s Also a Cocktail Made of Stout and Champagne

In case you didn’t know, this song is about Elvis. I didn’t figure that out for ages and now I’m not sure why because it seems super obvious. Maybe I was just listening to the drum beat. Black velvet and that little boy’s smile Black velvet with that slow southern style A new religion that’ll […]

Arkem: If it’s a train bound for nowhere why don’t they get off? Me: They wanted somewhere to have a nap. Arkem: And a chat. And some whiskey. Me: Sounds pretty good to me. Arkem: ….so they were at the bar? …. If I open a bar I’m going to call it ‘Train Bound For […]

Some People Living For Pleasure, Some Thriving On Pain

I wasn’t really expecting it but somehow a bunch of songs that at least walk the borderline of Country ended up in this playlist. I guess if you think about it, it makes sense.

This song is hilarious if you turn it up really loud and imagine Jim Kirk is singing it. As this was the way I was introduced to it I have no ability to hear it any other way. I’m the captain of this ship so / Come on climb into my golden cockpit

A while back, on a day when I was sick and this song had only recently been added to this playlist, I played it very loudly and shouted along (because when you’re sick bad jokes are funnier and if it’s loud enough you can’t hear how hoarse your voice is). I then quoted it here […]
