go-go version

Was looking for a good version of this song to celebrate my upcoming birthday. “Another day older and deeper in debt” seems to sum up my both the year I’m leaving and the one I’m heading into. I was leaning towards Johnny Cash when I stumbled on the go-go version (WTF?!?) by Ernie Ford. It’s so odd. Are those dancers wearing coal miner’s daughters costumes? And could they be any more happy about owing their souls to the company store? Anyway… enjoy!

    • I like it too but the lyrics and, well, everything else are kinda incongruous. Does make me want to get up and dance, in a way that the original simply does not. :]
