Van Zant, “Goes Down Easy”

Well, I’ll be damned. I was digging this barroom anthem from the beginning, a honky-tonk drinking celebration that captures the carefree nature of those island drinking songs without brining the calypso instrumentation along for the ride. I must say that the possible double meaning of the title had crossed my mind, but I didn’t expect the song to actually go there in the final verse.

I wonder how many country radio programmers will catch on and ban this from the playlists? Hopefully not enough to stop this song from getting the wide exposure that it deserves.

Grade: B+
