For a presentation about the dangers of teen drinking, I need to nominate a song to be played as an introduction. The whole forum is designed for teens, I believe, and so somewhat tongue-in-cheek songs might be acceptable. So have you guys got any serious suggestions? Any vaguely serious suggestions? The more popular the song the better.
Any nutty country and western songs eg “My baby done been drinking and broke ma ole pick-up truck”? I won’t be able to use those suggestions, but what the hell.
If you can find it, try Blotto’s “My Baby’s the Star of a Driver’s Ed Movie.” (It’s available – along with the rest of Blotto’s classics* from http://www.onewayrecords.com.
*“I Want to be a Lifeguard” was the closest they came to a hit.
“How Much Tequila Did I drink Last Night?” by Steve Goodman
*How did I get these cuts and bruises all over my body?
I must have fallen down somehow.
I believe it had something to do with karate –
It’s all coming back to me now.
I was standing in a bar with King Kong’s cousin,
He must have been seven foot three.
His elbow gave me a bump, and so I said "Hey, chump,
Would you like to step outside with me?"
Tell me how, tell me how, tell me how, tell me how,
Tell me how much tequila did I drink last night?*
Beer Drinker, Hell Raiser?
Have A Drink On Me?
The Drugs Don’t Work?
All My Rowdy Friends Are Comin’ Over Tonight?

Thinking back to when I was in high school, I’d urge you to be very careful about using a song at all. We frequently had to watch a video on drunken driving, before breaks, prom, etc. Anyway, this particular video (I think it was produced by the Michigan State Police, but I’m not sure) consisted entirely of drunken driving accidents and their aftermath set to music. It was mostly 80’s music - Danger Zone from Top Gun, I’ve Had the Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing, In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins (actually about drinking and driving, I think). Anyway, the effect was to kind of make it a farce. My friend and I got in trouble for singing along…
Chuck Wagon and the Wheels “My Girl Passed Out In Her Dinner”
Now she’s got more of it on her than in her.
That 9 Coronas song (set to My Sharona that was in the flash video.
Every kids will love it.
Ozzy’s “Suicide Solution” is a pretty grim admonition about alcohol.
Mary’s Danish “Don’t Crash the Car Tonight”
Dead Kennedys “Too Drunk to Fuck”
FYC “She Drives Me Crazy”
ooh ooh, Skid Row’s “18 and Life”: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/skidrow/skidrow.html#5
Tequila in his heartbeat, His veins burned gasoline.
It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean.
They say he loved adventure, “Ricky’s the wild one.”
He married trouble and had a courtship with a gun.
Bang Bang Shoot 'em up, The party never ends.
You can’t think of dying when the bottle’s your best friend
