Following on from last year's rousing success, the Bavarian beer buffet promises another evening perfect for entertainment. To whet your appetite ahead of this year's event, here are 10 tracks designed to get the drinks flowing.
Perhaps one of the most well-known songs of the 90s, Tubthumping provides all the ready-made defiance every good night out deserves. Now all you need to decide is whether to have a whisky drink, or a vodka drink, or a lager drink, or even a cider drink. Either way, it's definitely a song to remind you of the good times.
One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
John Lee Hooker
Originally a hit for Amos Milburn in 1953, John Lee Hooker's re-worked version earned him acclaim in 1966. The track was later covered by George Thorogood, Champion Jack Dupree and others. It also featured in an episode of Glee.
This fruity little number, released in 1979 as Escape, initially struggled to chart until it was later re-issued as Escape (the Pina Colada Song). A must have on your night out, if you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
Whiskey in the Jar
Perhaps one of the most widely-performed traditional Irish songs, Whiskey in the Jar has spawned a handful of notable cover versions over years. Thin Lizzy's rendition, released in 1972, was one of the most popular versions, with many artists such as U2, Metallica and Simple Minds all following suit.
Drinking in LA
Bran Van 3000
This laid-back number peaked at #3 in the UK, despite failing to chart well in the band's native Canada. It is definitely more suited to a relaxing drink, although it makes a notable reference to Snoop Dogg's Gin and Juice in the chorus.
Cheers (Drink to that)
Basically a song about drinking; who wouldn't want to drink to that? Although, not one of the biggest hits from the Barbadian star, it deserves its place on the list if only for its reference to Jamieson's Irish Whiskey.
A song to make you happy, this infectious track from 1999 is a shoe-in for any boozy playlist. Despie peaking at the #2 in the UK singles chart, the band were dropped by their record label just months later.
I was Drunk
Riva Starr feat. Noze.
This gem from house favourite Riva Starr is provocative little number to help keep the drinks coming thick and fast. Also one of the creepiest music videos ever made, unless you're a fan of babies with moustaches.
Lily the Pink
Topping the Christmas charts in 1968, this charming little track is just absolutely perfect if you find yourself in the mood for 'a drink, a drink, a drink'.
I'm Shipping Up To Boston
No booze-up would be complete without a bit of Dropkick and anyone looking to get legless. Even if it's your first time hearing it, by the end of this three-minute track anyone will be shouting 'I've lost my leg' into their beer glass.
