Iron & Wine - Iron & Barley Wine
This is maybe an obvious one, but I'm pretty intrigued by the idea of a hipster craft beer with 12 percent ABV. And lest the name confuse you, barley wine is, in fact, a type of beer, but it's called wine because it's often strong and bitter like a good red wine. A couple pints of Iron & Barley Wine, and I imagine we'd be passed out on the floor, ahem, naked as we came. Sorry, I couldn't come up with a pun about "Love Song of the Buzzard."

Chumbawamba - A Lager Drink
Ah, Chumbawamba. My favorite one-hit wonder of the '90s. Apparently they were still making music until just a year ago, but let's face it, Chumba, everyone only knows you for your lyrical masterpiece "Tubthumping." And of course we all remember every word to that catchy little number (it's rather repetitive), including the verse, "He drinks a whiskey drink, he drinks a vodka drink, he drinks a lager drink, he drinks a cider drink." Hey, if the lager drink is successful, Chumbawamba can market a cider beverage, and they can call it...Never mind. I think you see where I'm going here.

The obvious one is Z Z Top's Waiting on the Buzz. I'll think on it some more.

I don't think Paul McCartney wrote Live and Let Die in 1983 as your story says.
