Decoding Little Big Town’s Song “Pontoon”: What Does “Don’t Drink It If The Mountains Aren’t Blue” Mean?
Every summer needs a country anthem, and it appears that the summer of 2012’s country theme song is Little Big Town’s “Pontoon”. Love it or hate it – you might have listened to it and wondered: “what do they mean by “don’t drink it if the mountains aren’t blue””?
That (somewhat) obscure song lyric refers to Coors Light – and their color-changing mountains. A marketing gimmick that Coors first debuted in 2007, an ingenuous color-changing ink makes the white mountains on the can turn to blue when the beer inside reached 39 degrees Fahrenheit – allowing consumers to know when their beverage is chilled to perfection.
Pontoon? Cold beer? Sounds like summer.
