Who did the remake in the mid to late 1980's? Or, am I geezering while thinking of Don't Worry Be Happy?

Neil does the song good, but Charles Mann singing it reminds me of the clubs across the Sabine River, just a few miles from the Texas line, into Louisiana.

That's the key difference between many American wines and their European counterparts. European wines tend to be acidic because they're meant to be consumed with food. American wines tend to be alcoholized grape bombs with high sweetness and low acidity and can be drunk alone. They both have their place, just not really for me anymore.
When I was a kid, my mom would make spaghetti, and get a bottle of wine for her and her friend or date to drink. She always got a bottle in a woven straw and said it was Italian wine to go with the dinner. I remember her saying it was "Cheap Wine" It looked like this. But there are good Chiantis to be had and I like them both alone or with food

Well, they're pretty much all entitled to badge themselves with the Gallo Nero. Even the fiaschi o' chateau Thames Embankment!

The 2020 was an exquisite vintage.
