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.

Aquarius (Real Audio) Harmony and understanding... except for understanding of the lyrics to this song.
Proud Mary (Real Audio) Trust me, this is nothing to be proud of.

Some of the best singers I have seen since my favorite superstar Tim McGraw is a new band in Nashville called Shiloh! They are sometimes listed as Shiloh The Band ~ and they are awesome! I have been able to see them a few times at the famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville and each show is unbelievably better than the previous one! All I can say about this group of 5 talented lead singers is just WOW!!! (11-25-2004)

Rollin' on the river is the funniest track I have heard yet on this whole site. What a half-assed attempt at music. "No matter what your bag is"----well my bag is a big bag of pot, fuckers. (11-24-2004)
