Drinkin' Buddies

by Randy and the Retreads

Fun, catchy, upbeat, happy drinking anthem! Let the suds flow and the laughs bellow (as on the background sound track, recorded at three different bars or parties). Life is short and harsh, so you need to unwind and vent your complaints to your buds.

Album Notes
North America's new drinking song! Happy, fun, catchy, upbeat! Work hard but have fun on the weekends or after completing a tough project. Life is short. Don't be an alcoholic but dont be a workaholic either. The chorus ends: "we all need a drinkin' buddy just to get us thru this life". A typical verse (copyright by Randy) is "All the trials and tribulations of the lives we lead, Mean that when the weekend comes we've built up a need, Need a friend to complain to while we sip our beer, And on our part we'll lend them our own sympathetic ear. "
This song is not just for blue collar beer guys. Ladies - get together for wine and to whine and then unwind (and let the giggles begin). The background chatter and glasses tinkling was recorded at three places - a Latino night club, a musicians' party, and a bar full of what Canadians call "hosers" (if anyone remembers Bob and Doug MacKenzie from SCTV and the movie "Strange Brew".)
This song is dedicated to my recently deceased buddy Dennis Johnston. He was like merry old King Cole. Always eager to "go for drinky-poos" after work. He was always full of jokes and wise-cracks and everybody loved him. Sadly he never exercised and had a fatty diet and ballooned up to 350 or 400 pounds and his heart failed. He always ate when drinking, never drank to excess and always took a taxi, train or bus home, so follow Dennis' example and don't drink and drive.
