Tangerine Moon Music's Spotlight: "Wishful Drinkin"

joezelek2 This month's Tangerine Moon Music Spotlight shines down on a song entitled, "Wishful Drinkin".  Written by TMM // La Luna Tune's, Tim Gaetano, Apothecary Records indie artist, Joe Zelek (www.joezelekband.com), and Jonny Houlihan of Calico Trail. (www.myspace.com/calicotrail).

The subject matter is heartache. The pain numbing antidote is, of course,  alcohol. The scene is most any town USA @ Joe's Bar & Grill. Your behind-the-bar host is none other than, Joe the bartender. The delusional fool is played by any one of us who has ever been broken in a million pieces by ... you guessed it, love. Pour all these ingredients in a dirty glass over a little cracked ice, shake, rattle & stir, and you have a top notch country weeper!

The song felt so real that by the time we finished writing it, even at 10:30 am, we were toasting our next hopeful hit with straight shots of scotch! Ahh, the life of hard-working songwriters in motion ... what's not to love!


The title, 'Wishful Drinkin' just sounds like a familiar big ol' hit. Joe's subtle intro guitar lick is so memorable that you find yourself waiting for it over & over again. The lyric neatly unfolds & tells a country sad story of a love sick fool who just won't let go. Our decision to present the song bare bones naked with Joe's lonesome vocal, acoustic guitar & a touch of harmony only further adds to the mood and feel of the song.

Country music at its finest, pure & simple.

So pour your favorite drink, sit back & give it a listen ... with your eyes closed! Enjoy!!
