Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Vikings

Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Vikings
I grew up in Arizona. This guy has been a local legend since I was in high school - 1970's. Thought I would share this Waylon/ Willie spoof with you:

 This guy's hilarious.

Sorry, can't help myself being a smidge pedantic; "Viking" is actually a verb.  Read

I really like C&W. Think Willie's version of 'Stardust' and his own"Crazy' are among the best I've heard.

Why is it that so many C&W singers are such complete pricks in real life?---alcoholic, wife beaters, or simply as dumb as a bag of hammers .(like Elvis, with an IQ of about 80)

Do you think it has anything to with C&W being a form of folk music ? (or it was) A lot of these people came from very harsh backgrounds. One thing I've found out about 'good ol 'boys', is that more often than not, they ain't. Aren't they the one's who voted for Donald Trump?

As for the ladies of C&W. Generally speaking, that band of debutantes aren't usually much to write home about either. My last disappointment was Leanne Rimes. . Not her fault though; that kid had her first huge hit at 13.  I think fame would be hard to deal with at any age, but at 13, she was doomed.


Quote of the day: " Australia; the only country in the world where the word 'academic' is regularly used as a term of abuse." ( Dame Leonie Kramer, first female vice chancellor of the university Of Sydney)

Do you know that Willie sold the rights for Crazy for $50 so he could pay the rent?

No, idid not, but not at all surprised.

An aside; There is an interesting 'small film' called 'Crazy'. It refers to Willie's song ,by not to Willie

Crazy is a 2007 independent feature biographical musical/drama film starring Waylon Payne and Ali Larter.

Inspired by the life of Nashville guitarist Hank Garland, the movie was filmed from January 13 to February 12, 2005, in Los Angeles, California

Bonus;

A very young clean cut Willie Nelson on the Porter Wagoner Show. (1961) The show is pretty cheesy, but he had some interesting guests, before they were famous.
