Nashville Country Singers

Country singers butchering the Hits of '69.

I've heard some good singers occasionally screw up a word or two in a cover song, but "Hits of '69" by the Nashville Country Singers takes the cake. Apparently, nobody bothered to give these folks copies of the lyrics to the songs they were expected to sing. Combine that with flat music and off-key vocals and you have what was certainly one of the most exciting new albums of the year.

Check out how the Country Singers butcher two of my favorite songs. On "Aquarius", the moon is no longer in the seventh house, but the serpent's house. Then the phrase "no more falsehoods or derisions" somehow becomes -- get this -- "thunderbolts of long duration". Whoa! But that's nothing compared to what they do to "Proud Mary". Incredibly, they don't even sing the phrase "Proud Mary" once throughout the entire song. Among other flubs, these guys "seen a lotta plays in Memphis" and "Humped a lotta grain in New Orleans". I don't know what they were taking in Nashville back in 1969 but I sure want some for my next party.

I still wonder if you still wear that Hills Angels T-Shirt and cap I mailed you. My boyfriend was the one that started this club and now he has passed away. We were very thankful for the autogragphed picture. I will never forget the medical chopper that crashed I think it changed peoples lives for ever. I would love to hear from you and I love that song Home to you. I'm looking forward to your new CD comming out. I would be very happy if I would hear from you.

How 'bout these lyrics;

Licked a lotta Bush in Memphis!
Got taken from behind by a riverboat Queen!
Never knew how good it could feel to get it on,
Copping a squeeze from a second hand feel!

Big wheel a keep on Turnin'
Proud Mary Keep on Burnin'

Rollin', Rollin, Rollin' on the river, (04-13-2004)

What? Apology? I don't think relatives of the Kurds Sadaam killed with his bio wmd's (if any still live) would agree that there weren't WMD..why on earth should Toby apologize?? Good grief..get your head out of the liberal media and do some thinking on your own dude!

Lookin' for job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost the manner of speaking
Worrying about the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on rollin'
I'll never keep on goin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

Seen a lot of plays in Memphis
Humped a lot of grain in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
'Til I hitched a ride on the Riverboat Queen

Big wheel keep on rollin'
I'll never keep on goin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

If you come down to the river
If you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money
People on the river happy to give

Big wheel keep on rollin'
I'll never keep on goin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river (04-04-2004)
