Fifteen Of the Top "Bottom" Songs
The Seldom Scene Is One Of The Most Enduring Bluegrass Bands
Traditionally the local classic rock station has celebrated the Super Bowl by centering its lunch hour playlist the next day on the artist who performed at halftime, bands such as the Who, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Billy Joel. This year, however, the disc jockey admitted to having on hand no songs from either of the acts from Sunday's intermission, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
He instead paid tribute to these performers by featuring songs that mention butt or bottom, which is what most viewers saw while the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs rested up for the second half. He played "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen, "Bell Bottom Blues" by Derek and the Dominos and "Rock Bottom" by Kiss, a trio of tunes that represent a wide variety of rock.
Here are ten others that could have been included as well, all containing the word bottom in their titles.
1. Land of the Bottom Line by John Gorka
Too notch is the best way to describe this title track from the folk singer's third album, which also features "Full of Life" and "Where the Bottles Break."
2. The Bottom of the Top of the Bottom by John Wesley Harding
Wes Tace, the full-time artist's given name, highlighted his Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead record.
3. Way Below the Bottom by the Singing Cookes
As far as classic country spirituals go,this gem rises above most of them.
4. Bell Bottom Trousers by Oscar Brand
On an album titled Bawdy Songs and Back Room Ballads, the sexual innuendos make this folk track fit right in.
5. Bell Bottom Pants by Loudon Wainwright III
Attempted Mustache is the home of this clever ditty, on which the folk singer pokes fun at himself and other booze hounds.
6. Bottoms Up by Nickelback
The rock band released this singles as the second one from its album, Here and Now.
7. Through the Bottom of the Glass by the Seldom Scene
Bluegrass is the genre of this bottom tune, one of the many classics of a top band of the kind.
8. Bottomless Lake by John Prine
"Smoke 'em if you got 'em" the folk legend suggests on this catchy single from Aimless Love.
9. At the Bottom of Everything by Bright Eyes

10. Sink to the Bottom by Fountains of Wayne
