One More Cup

Coffee... drink of the gods. I endorse Saula. Try it if you can find it. An excellent coffee, made in Barcelona.

Recommended reading: Black Coffee Blues by Henry Rollins. "She pours it. There it sits, black and ominous, a slight oil slick at the top. I drink, smooth, like Death."

Recommended viewing: Coffee And Cigarettes by Jim Jarmusch. A classy brew featuring messieurs Waits and Pop amongst others. Tom: "You wanna join me, man?" Iggy: "Well, yeah... since I´ve quit..."

Recommended listening to maximize that caffeine buzz: the following sixpack. "Drinkin´ black coffee, black coffee, drinkin´ black coffee, staring at the wall..."

Black Flag - Black Coffee MP3
Otis Redding - Cigarettes And Coffee MP3
Augustus Pablo - Java Original MP3
Bob Dylan - One More Cup Of Coffee (Valley Below) (live ´75) MP3

black coffee an' cigarettes! my fav pastime, with music of course, an' you supplied that ok! ;)* thanx!

can you do one for cigars and single malt scotch next?

Ramone666 said...

I´ll do my best Neil. Can´t think of many cigar songs now that you mention it, apart from the obvious Floyd one. But Scotch and bourbon songs are definitely a possibility.

Paul said...

I can't think of any cigar songs either, but there are a ton of cigarette songs.

Ramone666 said...

I´ll sure do a ciggy special someday, Paul. And now I´ll step outside and light one up. "One more coffee one more cigarette, one more moment trying to forget..." Shame you can´t post any Van songs on a blog without getting a takedown notice within hours.

"One More Cup of Coffee" may well be my favourite Dylan song. Certainly, "Desire" is right up there with his best.

Thanks for the Black Flag too.

Desire´s underrated for sure Ib. You gotta love that loose sound and Scarlet´s gypsy violin.
