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'm trying to find the album, Can't help Falling.
there's a song in it that just makes my world stop. The name of that song is one has my Name,
(the other has my Heart.) And I think the name
of the singer is Hank Lockler, or Locklen, I'm
not sure. I just heard this song once on the
radio and never heard it again. I called the
radio station but he couldn't help me. Sure
hope you can, because I can't get this song
out of my mind. And I would love to purchase it.
THANK YOU (06-27-2003)
