(One last post before we’re out of here for the weekend. You will be in the usual good hands of B-Daddy during that time. A good friend from college is coming into town tomorrow afternoon. It’s the Anaheim Ducks on Friday evening, possibly Trojan football Saturday evening and then back down here for Chargers/Colts Sunday evening. Sheesh… whatever happened to the good ol’ days of taking your out-of-town college bros out drinking and to the strip clubs?)
Our inaugural post said that one of the things we wanted to do was post and comment upon American culture. Though we haven’t done that in a while, it is hoped this makes up for it a little and that you all have some fun with it.
A few months back we posted here on what songs would get the most enthusiastic response from U.S. tourists and expats were that song played at a pub, café’, hofbrau, yardhouse, etc. abroad. So in a change of pace from putting up polls on the serious matters of life like football, we want you to grab your passport, take a trip across the pond and settle yourself into a brew house in our ancestral homeland of Germany.
And when the oompah band in a shameless attempt to pander to the Americans in the crowd belts out an American classic, which of the following songs are you most likely to and most enthusiastically sing the chorus along with the rest of your American (and possibly European) table mates? Choices are in poll at right but feel free to browse your selections courtesy YouTube below.
American Pie – Don McLean
Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd
I wanna rock’n’roll all night (and party every day) – KISS
Country Roads – John Denver
