    I enjoyed all of those! Jackie Wilson is amazing, and I’d never heard the ate the chicken song before.

    Great choices. I fell in love with “Fist City” the first time I heard it, and I wouldn’t put it past Loretta to have it be a true to life tale! Now I want to find that VHS tape of “Coal Miner’s Daughter!”

    The one I hadn’t heard was that Kitty Wells song which was hilarious… I would love to make an animated video to go with that tune, and of course it would be completely NC-17 as we get to witness the things our angelic singer did to get her rep, even as she pleads to her lover, face to face!

    Yes! I really dig on “Fist City” too. Also, that Kitty Wells is shutting it down.

    My favorite thing about the video for “Fist City” is how damn happy Loretta looks while she’s singing it. Love it!
