The Drinking Songs Episode

Post by ScreamieBirds » Tue May 21, 2019 9:00 am

Last night somebody suggested we post the drinking songs we submitted to the "Drinking Songs" listing. What I realized after watching the episode is that my song ("Tequila Take Me Home") also fell into the category of "not really a drinking song," meaning, it isn't what you think of when you think of a drinking song. it was more tequila makes me think about home than it was "let's order a drink." And that fact alone was often what drove the +1 vs. a -1, at least for me. So, very informative episode.

And to think that I had other drinking songs that might have been more suitable but needed more work. Especially the one NSAI mentors loved. Darn!

Anybody want to post their drinking songs here? Link to mine on my web site- https://kathyholmes.net/2019/05/21/tequila-take-me-home.

It would never work for the listing, just a personal fun one :) ... needs to be mixed again (Left side heavy as it is now)

For reasons sorta similar to what you stated... though it was tempting... I didn't bother submitting this as a purely 'drinking' song; oh well.

we wrote this one specifically for the listing - its literally all about drinking! :D



Screener's comments: Hi James, I dig the creativity, but feel that the song would need a more distinct drinking song energy for the track to be a good fit here.
see you at the top!

Great song, Jay! I really like it! But I’m starting to think that “drinking song” means country. My song is more dance/rap and the screener thought I did have the drinking theme down, but the arrangement didn’t quite fit.
