Thread Name: Ballads with Plot Twists?
Subject: RE: BS: Ballads with Plot Twists?
Mole and Mrrzy,
I remember a DJ asking what the Everly Brothers were doing in the Everglades. I think you're right.
Add to the list:
"The Bad Girl Who Lives Down The Street" (or is it "Be Careful of Stones that You Throw"?)by Hank Williams.
A gossipy neighbor fills everyone in on the dirt about a local girl. As they are talking, the woman's child runs in front of a car but is pushed out of the way by a woman now dead. The hero is of course the bad girl who lives down the street.
