Delta Dawn. Tanya Tucker. All Fired Up on Jack Daniels.

I was just watching Dancing with the Stars....uh..by accident?

And Donny Osmond was on. So I look up the Osmonds on the Youtube and I was checking out a Donny and Marie video. Marie...Niiiiice. But then on the sidebar I see Delta Dawn by Tanya Tucker*. Here's the video. Doesn't she sound like a goat at certain parts?

Does anyone remember this song?

But it does bring back a nice memory of when I heard this song on the radio when I was a kid.



*a few years back I was on a photo shoot and this photographer used to do all kinds of rock photography. I swear he photographed almost every major musician. So we were talking about music and he said he once photographed Tanya Tucker and she was telling him about when she used to be a major alcoholic. Said she used to walk around with a Jack Daniels bottle with a straw in it. What the hell?

I think she got better looking with age.

..and for the record I'm a big fan of the skirt height.

Donny Osmond is still alive?

Roxy said...

Leaving a comment but not too cracked about knowing the date I will go to heaven. @FatherKelly on Twitter said so!

JenJen said...

She is totally a capricorn.

B.E. Earl said...

She was only 13 when she recorded Delta Dawn. How about that?

And I remember this song on the radio from when I was a kid, but I'm not sure it was this version. Helen Reddy also recorded it the following year and her version was much more popular. Hmmm.

OMG...I thought this was one of my Mom's made-up songs. She is always singing things to us which may/maynot be real songs and which may/maynot contain the actual lyrics. (she got 70% of this one right ...tee-hee)

UberGrumpy said...

Ahhh. Reminds me of 'Jogging With Jesus' by The Hank Wangford Band. Now that was a good song.

Takes me right back

Dr Zibbs said...

Rox - glad to see you found me from @FatherKelly.

SmittenKitty - My sister used to sing it all the time too.

I like country music, but I have to agree with you...she DOES sound like a goat? Or a sheep? She did get better looking with age. The dental work helped.

I think @FatherKelly needs to extend that date. 53 seems kind of young.

Interesting blog you got here. It would be great to read a bit more about that theme.
By the way check the design I've made myself Russian escort

I always liked this tune(when i was a kid, country music was all my Mom listened to).It almost seems like she's TRYING to sound like a goat in this performance.

I was going to comment but I got sidetracked by the 123's Russian Escort thing.

I'M GETTING MARRIED!

ChesterCo_PA said...

Mooooog35 Congratulations! Another couple who met on TBY, perhaps?

SkylersDad said...

Didn't she marry Glen Campbell when she was like 16 or something?

Good gracious, me oh my. I remember that song. As a kid then, I didn't recall who sang the song. It was just one of those bits of useless memories that formed my childhood. Kind of like John Denver songs.

I'm sure that song made it's way onto some Time Life or K-Tel collection. (Dating myself here.)

Dr Zibbs said...

K-Tel. Haven't heard that word on years.

I think I had that 45 record and played it on my record player with my hairbrush in my hand singing in my underwear in front of my mirror.

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy - who didn't?

..I mean uh.. I didn't..

Dr Zibbs said...

...seriously..I didn't.

Son of a Thomas said...

What the F was that Russian escort thing?????

Candy, I have the 45 if you would like to do some more underware dancing.

Dr Zibbs said...

..stupid Russian escorts.

diane said...

Smittenkitten cracks me up. I totally agree. Except the first time I heard it was vacationing at my cousin's in New Hampshire, I just figured it was hillbilly music.

Dr Zibbs said...

Smittenkitten. Yeah. That's a good one.
