Cigarette Ash

We don’t smoke, but we can’t deny a great cigarette song, whether it’s Patsy Cline’s “Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray” or Oasis’ “Cigarettes & Alcohol.” It’s funny how so many of them focus more on the ashtray than the cigarette, but then again, a lot of our favorite love songs are actually about the breakup. So. Anyway. Here’s a cover of one of our favorite ashtray songs, Guided by Voices’ “Hey Aardvark,” which seems to be about neither the love nor the breakup, just the smoke.

Trouble Dolls, “Hey Aardvark”
