    In one hand, a pint of Mudder’s Milk, in the other a bottle of Romulan Ale. Sing and laugh along with this Celtic Geek musical gem.

    A Jedi saunters up to the bar at the Pub at the End of the Universe. “Gimme a Romulan Ale.”

    “I’m sorry,” the Publican replies, “That’s still illegal.”

    “What?! It’s been 52 million years and the universe is about to explode. Surely, you can serve it NOW?!”

    “I’m sorry, Sir,” he replies apologetically, “And please don’t call me Shirlely.”

    “All right, I’ll take a mudder’s milk, Monahan’s, please”.

    Drinking can be found throughout the universe from Earth to Praxis, from Canton to Skaro. Come on, you know Davros was drinking something when he came up with the Daleks. In fact, I think The Doctor was there drinking with him.

    What’s just as prevalent as drinking in the galaxy?

    Drinking songs.

    In fact, Sci Fi Drinking Songs aren’t just about drinking. They’re fun songs that you and I can sing along to while we’re in cars traveling to a Sci Fi Convention or Renaissance Festival. They’re songs we put on in the background while playing Dungeons & Dragons or Magic:The Gathering.

    Sci Fi Drinking Songs are fun songs designed to make us laugh, cry, smile, and above all SING!

Year ago, I heard a song written about the "Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster" from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It was poorly written with bad rhythm. I thought such a feat could never be done. That's what I told my Gunn Runners. Matt Hughes responded with the first verse of the song. So I sat down and wrote a chorus. We cleaned up both and kept writing. Soon Floyd and Sarah Brigdon, big fans of the Hitchhiker's series sent me some a verse too.

Matt sent me a guitar and vocal part that were the perfect addition to the groovy rhythm I started. A song was born.


The Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster
t’s the drink I never could master
It’s like having your brains smashed out by a lemon,
Wrapped ’round a gold brick
The Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster
Just one look I’m off the wagon faster
It’s like a mugging, a beating, a kick in the head
I’m broke and I wish I were dead.

I’ve hitchhiked intergalactic super highways
The bypass, back roads, all along the byways
At every stop, at every bar
The Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster hits me like a car
I’ve had porters, stouts, ales and lagers
Rum, Coke Whiskey and lots of Jager
I’ve had 42 different kinds of wine
But there’s only one drink to unhinge my mind

It’s got that Ol’ Janx Spirit juice from a bottle
Pour into one measure of Santraginus seawater
I’d make another gallon if I could remember how it went
But the last time I drank it, I lost 3 months rent
The whales, the dolphins, the mices, too,
They all know about this brew.
The Vogon warn about it in their verse
But, of the two, I’m not sure which is worse.

So all you hitchhikers take my advice
Don’t drink it once, don’t drink it twice
If you drink it at all, drink it very carefully
Tho if you drink it all, you’ll die quite cheerfully!
