Toast to the cool bars with great jukeboxes I went to this year. From the local dive in the LBC to the Shortstop by the stadium... here are the songs that got the mood just right, made you bob your head and throw your hands in the air. Here are my top 11 bar songs of ’07, accompanied with the cocktails that were made to enjoy them with.
Britney Spears- Gimmie More
It’s Britney Bitch! This train wreck can still rally a group of girls at any bar… at anytime. Drink: SHOT of PATRON, what else?
Sean Kingston- Beautiful Girl
This throwback jam gets the body moving. Drink: Sex on the Beach you need a tropical drink with an umbrella for right paradise mood.
Maroon 5- Makes Me Wonder
After you look around the bar wonder who the fuck selected Maroon 5 from the jukebox, order up a Irish Car Bomb!
Mark Ronson/Amy Winehouse- Valerie
Drink: Classy and Amy Winehouse usually don’t go together… but mix it up with a Sour Apple Martini
Kinky- A Donde Van Los Muertos?
Put your arm around your best bud and chug an ice cold Modelo.
Justin Timberlake- Summer Love
Just how did they “get that pretty little face on that pretty little frame girl?” Enjoy this bar song with a Vodka (Kettle One) and Tonic. It’ll make ya say “let me buy you drinks- better yet rings…”
Rihanna got you the Umbrella now you need to make it rain. Step up to the bar and order up a Kamakazi shot.
M.I.A. dares to ask “HOW MANY TEQUILAS IN THE PLACE?
HOW MANY BEERS ARE IN THE CASE? BOYS THERE? HOW MANY?” Take a Stella Artois from the case, hold it up… and say “Salud”.
Will.I.Am- I Got It From My Momma
After this song plays you’ll find yourself asking the first hot girl you see... “Girl, where did you get that body from?” Then either a) it’ll be a hot icebreaker b) or you’ll get the classic roll of the eyes. Either way, enjoy this jam with a Vodka/Soda and splash of Cran… girls will dig it.
Kanye West- Stronger
By Stronger Kanye means Stronger rockstar… at least in this case... now that the party has started you need to take it to rockstar status and get on top of a bar (only if you’re hot) while holding a red bull and vodka.
