Reba cain't hold a candle to Miss Bobbie!
TrueBut then in her defense, who can???
I always loved this song. My mother thought it was scandalous. LOL
What's scandalous is that outfit!
As a child, in our home, Bobbie was just as relevant as The Beatles and The Stones...
What's even more scandalous is that Ms. Gentry married and divorced a casino magnate the year before this song came out and some think she only did it for the $$$, since Bobbie's rich husband caught her in a delicate moment with a young musician just months after they were hitched.Fancy, indeed!
Jesus that's a brutal song. The most amoral pop number ever - or at least until "So Many Men"...And while I of course regret that Miss Bobbie G. withdrew from public life as emphatically as Miss Greta G., I'm kind of glad that this is still our image of her and the song - preserved in amber, as it were.
