Some Weasel Took The Cork
Out Of My Lunch

Welcome to week two of the Prohibition-busting Big Rock Candy Mountain Top 100 Drinking Songs list. We'll be counting down from 50 to 1 over the next five days, a veritable bender. If you don't like what you see here, crawl over to Barstool Mountain for a list of all the tunes that got votes but didn't make the Top 100. Maybe you'll find your favorite song over there. You can tell us how we must've been drunk not to include it. Every song will eventually get it's own personal post over at the Barstool.

I'll keep the exposition short today, 'cuz nobody's here for my befuddled rantings. You're here for the tunes.

This post is lovingly dedicated to The Puritans and weekend Zima and wine spritzer sippers.

How about Johnny Sea Columbia release-Three Six Packs, two arms and a jukebox or Gary Stewarts I had to get drunk last night? Great list!

This continues to be an amazing list. I really like you choosing Sarah Vaughan doing "One Mint Julep". There were many versions to choose, but this is a good'un!
