I love great music and I love great wine, and it is fantastic when they come together. Here, I have compiled my list of top songs and the artist’s that reference wine in their lyrics. Everyone has a favorite musical preference and of course, everyone has a preference for what style of wine they enjoy – it’s that diversity that makes the world go round! Enjoy my list!
Red, Red Wine UB40 (written by Neil Diamond)
Red, red wine, Go to my head
Make me forget
That I still need her so
Scenes From An Italian Restaurant – Billy Joel
A bottle of white, a bottle of red
Perhaps a bottle of Rose’ instead
Do You Feel Like I Do – Peter Frampton
Woke up this morning
With a glass of wine in my hand
Whose wine, what wine?
Where the hell did I dine?
Killer Queen – Queen
She keeps Moet et Chandon, in her pretty cabinet
“Let them eat cake” she says, just like Marie Antoinette!
Ironic – Alanis Morrisette
It’s a black fly, in your Chardonnay
It’s a death row pardon, two minutes too late
Body Movin’ – The Beastie Boys
Like a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape
I’m fine like wine when I start to rap
Never Tear Us Apart – INXS
If I ever hurt you
I’d make wine from your tears
Livin’ La Vida Loca – Ricky Martin
She never drinks the water and makes you order pink champagne
Once you’ve had a taste of her
You’ll never be the same
Lil’ Old Wine Drinker Me – Dean Martin
I’m praying for rain in California
So the grapes can grow and they can make more wine
And I’m sitting in a honky in Chicago
With a broken heart and a woman on my mind
Don’t Know Why – Norah Jones
My heart is drenched in wine
But you’ll be on my mind Forever
He Went to Paris – Jimmy Buffet
Warm summer breezes
French wine and cheeses
Pride and Joy – Stevie Ray Vaughn
Well I love my baby like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
Wine, passion and love have inspired poets and artists for centuries, and will continue to do so for generations to come. I was inspired just writing this piece – like the Beastie Boys say, time to get my Body Movin’!
Of course, there are many more great songs that reference wine or are all about wine, but these are some of my favorites, feel free to drop me a line and let me know yours!
