Song of the day: Ozark Mountain Daredevils – "Jackie Blue"

August 8, 2011

Today’s song is the result of yet another instance in a series I like to call: “Ah, the mysteries of the human mind…”

I don’t know about you, but I wake up pretty much every morning with a song in my head. It’s a different song every time, and I’m very glad about that. (I’d hate it to be the same song every day.) I don’t know why I wake up with a song in my head – other than that I’m utterly besotted with music, can’t get enough of it, and think about it a lot – because I don’t listen to the radio (unless I’m out and about in an automobile), and I don’t listen to the clock radio by the bed before I go to sleep. I don’t even listen to it in the morning. Ah, the mysteries of the human mind.

This was what I had in my head when I woke up last Wednesday morning:

Ozark Mountain Daredevils – “Jackie Blue” (1975)


And I have no idea why.

That album cover hurts my eyes.
