Tom T. Hall’s 1976 single “I Like Beer” was a modest hit on the country charts but has gone on to become a classic. Nope, more than a classic – “I Like Beer” is to beer songs what Beethoven’s 9th is to symphonies, what Don Giovanni is to operas. In fact, “I Like Beer” is better than Don Giovanni, because it’s about liking beer.
Because it’s two AM and I just got home from spinning records at the Amsterdam’s theme night, I’m not going to be able to put together anything more intellectual than “I like beer”.
I really do.
