The best of the sea shanties is "Good Ship Venus."  But I can't post it here.    ;D

This has its drunken moments:



I always have to laugh when I listen to this song. It reminds me of something Cor said in his Band on The Run microscope that struck me as funny:

"The Ho He Ho ending is too much for me. I've heard enough Ho He Ho's earlier on the album."  ;D

The Who - Bell Boy


I always felt that Sea and Sand from Quadrophenia was a drunken song. And if I'm not mistaken, it corresponds to the last part of the text in the album, where Jimmy is drinking.

I always felt like this song told the story of my teenagerhood.  :'(

I did not limit the theme to the lyrics, but also considered the sound and the way the song is sung. Keith Moon sounds like a drunken man in "Bell Boy" certainly.

I'm a big fan of the Who, but I still need to analyze more the plot of Quadrophenia. I payed much more attention to Tommy, but Quadrophenia has really grown on me lately.

It's an interesting thread, I think....and I'm glad to hear Quadrophenia has grown on you. To me, the plot and the songs communicate perfectly the essence of teenage angst. It's probably my favorite album.

^^^
I was just reading about this song not too long ago! Actually I was trying to find out who Lydia Pinkham was. I always see ads for Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound when I'm reading old newspapers and I wondered if she was real. She was and she was "honored" in an American drinking song ("The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham") because her "women's tonic" became a favorite of men too, especially during Prohibition in the US. It was 40 proof! I don't know if it really relieved women of their ailments but I'm sure it made them forget for a while! The title was changed and the lyrics cleaned up but the basic premise was unchanged.
