‘Time Out Of Mind’ by Steely Dan came on the radio today, and when I heard the line “The water will change to cherry wine” it got me wondering: “Who actually drinks cherry wine? Is it any good? Why do so many songs mention it?”. Then, the inevitable question: “How many songs do mention cherry wine?”
