Hi-Fi Friday: July 31, 2015

Previously…

I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s rubbish and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.

These are mine, one post at a time.

I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.

Another Friday, the final drinking song. Or a song about drinking, rather. For this month, at least. I’m sure there will be more over time.

Most people will only know the 1977 George Thorogood cover of this song. But I still prefer the original as recorded by Amos Milburn in 1953. While I do like the Thorogood cover, I prefer the jazziness of Milburn’s version.

I present Amos Milburn’s “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”:

Until next time...
