A huge fan of Blues music, Thorogood often sings about drinking, which is a common theme in the genré - one of his most popular songs is a cover of John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." In this song, Thorogood takes a self-deprecating approach as he sings about drinking, which is generally a social activity, is something he enjoys by himself. The song takes a humorous tone, as many of the lyrics incorporate a name of a drink. Budweiser is mentioned in the first verse, Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam in the second, Johnny Walker (Black label and Red label) in the third, and Old Grand Dad in the last. (thanks, E - danvas, MA)
