The 10 Greatest Happy Hour Songs Of All Time


Put a Lincoln in the jukebox and enjoy.

“What A Fool Believes” – The Doobie Brothers

Nothing says happy hour like a little yacht rock to go along with your scotch and water.

“Sussudio” – Phil Collins

“I think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.”

“Captain Jack” – Billy Joel

Shock the house with a non “Piano Man” Joel jam. Starts out slow, but builds to a wonderful crescendo. That’s fancy music talk for the part of a song when everyone in the bar pounds their cocktail.

“Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go?” – Soft Cell

This song is nine minutes long and is actually two songs joined together. Conserve some jukebox credits and pick this bad boy.

“Party Up” – DMX

Set the tone right off the bat and let everyone at the bar know how you fucks with it.

“Cracklin’ Rosie” – Neil Diamond

Neil just talking about wine and women at the same time. That’s just happy hour in a nutshell.

“Rich Girl” – Hall & Oates

A happy hour staple. A classic, really.

“Do You Believe In Love?” – Huey Lewis & The News

Some might go with “The Power Of Love” or maybe even “Back In Time,” but I prefer the most underrated HL&TN song.

“Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” – Billy Ocean

Ask the barkeep to turn it up and find a babe to sing it to. She’ll love it.

“The Finer Things” – Steve Winwood

What life is all about.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
