A country classic.

  1. I thought sure I was in for "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia" - what a fun surprise to see this! Parody or not, I wish country music were still like this.
    P.S. I love Vicki Lawrence and I don't care who knows it.

    1. In my high school drama class, I did an interpretive dance to "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia", acting out every word ala Scopitone. Everybody cracked up, including me, and I did not get a very good grade.

    3. I assure you, it wasn't pretty! Then again, neither are most Scopitone videos.

  3. I thought the same thing as Matt as soon as she started singing! Memorial weekend, we were at a friend's who likes "country" music and she asked hubby who was his fave country artist to which he replied, "there aren't any real country stars, they are all pop stars making pop music." Truedat! LOVE this! (makes me miss the 70's too!)

    1. He was right, of course. Contemporary "country" music is basically just pop product made by people exploiting the ignorant masses. Not unlike rap! Today's country stars are pop stars who don't want to try as hard.
