Music from a Warped Childhood

I'm going to attempt to do this memey thing called 30 Days of Song. I will not post this every day, because oh-my-pants-I'm-bored-already. Instead I'll post once or twice a week, as I feel like. So there. I am unrepentantly stealing this from Jen O. at My Tornado Alley. She rocks. I'm not sure if she stole it from somewhere, but here we go. 

Also, we are in the home stretch ya'll. We may finish this before I die.

A Song from my Childhood

When I was a kidlet, I listened to country music. Like, a lot of country music. Because my mom did and because I lived in Kentucky and because it was the 80's, which if you will pardon my biases, was the best possible time for country music. 

I liked a lot of songs, "My Baby is American Made," "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On," and "Bonnie Jean" were pretty high up there. Apparently, I had a thing for American women in blue jeans. And also cocaine and truckers. But whatevs. My absolute favorite was about this woman and her best friend, a boy named Jose and sometimes they would dance on tables for some reason. It took me decades to figure out who Jose Cuervo was.
