“Well, it’s Friday, and we’re gettin’ tore up.”
Is there a better Friday afternoon, get you pumped for a night on the town, drinking song than this one? Probably not. Stoney’s “Oklahoma Breakdown” has always been one of my go-to songs and the 2007 live version from Billy Bob’s Texas will always take me right back to those college nights drinking cheap beer in my shitty dorm room. As soon as that slide lick hits in the intro, the whole room turns it up a notch.
*Fun fact: I auditioned for my church band with this song, completely hungover, in the same clothes I wore the night before… needless to say, I didn’t get the gig.
