There have been periods in my life when drinking alcoholic beverages was my favorite pastime. That ended many years ago when I spent fourteen hours in a drunk tank with a self-described paranoid schizophrenic. He talked for fourteen hours straight. I’m sure that if he is alive today he must be a leader of QAnon. He made that much sense. Just because I have stopped drinking doesn’t mean I have stopped enjoying songs about drinking. Vicarious thrills anybody?
As part of my new mixtapes project, I have asked select friends to curate playlists for me. This mixtape is specially curated for us by Norm. He quickly became a true friend and confidant 7 years ago when I correctly recognised a floppy disk for what it was. Since then, he has seen me through all my ups and downs through perfectly timed memes, several postcards, lessons on the American presidency, and music, music, music. When not spreading positivity by sharing his song of the day on Twitter, you can find him blogging at Classical Gasbag.
