Wine has featured in many popular songs over the years, from the Eagles’ “please bring me my wine” and “pink champagne on ice” in “Hotel California” to The Beatles’ “I sat on the rug, biding my time, drinking her wine” in Norwegian Wood.
Back from holiday you might need “a little help from your friends” and some music! Here is our – quite vintage – wine selection.
Let’s start with some rock, with Bottle of Red Wine, performed by a young Eric Clapton – already quite good in solos..
Still rocking the lost classic Blood Red Wine by the Rolling Stones singing “got blood red wine which I bring you, when the snow lies heavy on the ground..”
A little taste of reggae sound in Red Red Wine by UB40..
A great story and a great beat in Coffe and Wine by Chadwick Stokes, he as well at his first album
Then, a swing piece, Drinkin’ Wine (Spo-Dee-O-Dee) by Jerry Lee Lewis
From Jerry Lewis’ rhythm to Nina Simone blues notes: the beautiful and visionary Lilac Wine in the Cinematic Orchestra video version..
Finally, our favourite. Little Old WIne Drinker Me, a melancholic folk song by Dean Martin
