There’s a musical quality to the bouquet of a cigar drifting around the room. In fact, music is a great way to compliment a fine cigar. Here are the top 5 greatest cigar songs to smoke to.
1. Brad Paisley – “The Cigar Song”
What if there were a loophole to getting fine cuban cigars for free? This little ditty is called “The Cigar Song.” And it’s about a man who smokes the system.
First the narrator takes out an insurance claim on a box of 24 cuban cigars. Then smokes them up one by one for the insurance money! Soon after collecting a fat check and buying a new box of cubans, he’s arrested. The charge? 24 counts of arson.
Maybe he’ll settle for a fine Dominican or Nicaraguan cigar next time.
2. Pink Floyd – “Have a Cigar”
No artist explored cigars as a symbol of power deeper than Pink Floyd. This blues-rock classic off 1975’s Wish You Here may be a scathing indictment on selling out in the music business, but it’s also groovy enough to relax to while you smoke. Sit back with a maduro cigar and take a trip to the dark side of the moon!
3. Herman’s Hermits – “The Man with the Cigar”
Big bosses smoke cigars–at least in movies and songs they do. From Tony Soprano to Winston Churchill, there’s something authoritative about someone with a cigar between their teeth. English beat band Herman’s Hermits put it like this:
The man with the cigar walked on up to where I was workin’ this mornin’
The man with the cigar said that I was workin’ too slow
Want to look like a boss yourself? We suggest a big ring cigar like the Churchill.
4. Cream – “N.S.U.”
Smoking and driving wasn’t invented yesterday, you know. Eric Clapton’s Cream put this cherished pastime to music back in 1972:
Driving in my car, smoking my cigar,
The only time I’m happy’s when I play my guitar.
While the meaning of “N.S.U.” is up for debate given the creative liberties Cream took with other song titles, the fact that NSU is the name of a German automaker might have something to do with it.
5. Jethro Tull “A Small Cigar”
Sharing a cigar is a timeless gesture of generosity. Jethro Tull put it poetically in this 1975 psychedelic number when they sang, “A small cigar can change the world.”
