What were they thinking????? Bizarre might be the classic example of understatement.

"What were they thinking?????", Mick?

I haven't the Vegas notion.

It was taking too long to download. Part of me wanted to stick it out and see the whole thing, but I got as far as "If I had a song", and gave up. I got the idea, though, and I doubt it got better. As far as rating the video, I don't think I could. 5 stars for being really hilarious, maybe, but they might think I liked it, and that would only encourage them.

Funny-but since when is "If I Had a Hammer" folk music? Style or
provenance?

Isn't Provenance in Road Island?

Dick, it's folk music in its message and sentiment. That's what the 60's was about. What poor pete Seeger must think of that!

Pete used to tell his audiences of how the two hit versions actually harmonized, as a good moral to such things.

What he would say about that version, I don't know, but I hope "poor Pete" and Lee Hays got their royalty check, because some retrebutions were owed. Now I want to run out and rent Debbie in "The Singing Nun" to see what she did with THAT!

Somehow that clip managed to make love between your brothers and sisters sound as distasteful as incest.

This is the wrong thread for that video-- it belongs in the thread we had awhile about good gig wear, and how a folkie oughtta execute the twirl. That girl looks ALMOST ready to add the geetar to the twirl.

And of course it is folk music-- she collected the song while playing Tammy.

I hear the Cottonwoods whisper so sweet,
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in heat....

("Is that Deb you taunt?")

...Actually, "Tammy's Waltz" was recorded by Mark O'Connor on "Pickin' In The Wind", his first full album back when he was a teenage phenom contest winner on every instrument he touched, and he'd gotten it off of an older picker, so maybe "Tammy" HAS entered tradition, even if tradition didn't quite enter Tammy (at least her mind).

(But by this time, "The TAMI Show" has entered tradition, too).

...and what ever happened to that "fissure", Eddie who dumped his former foil for Liz Taylor?

But enough Reynolds Rap for now.....
