Dunno whatinhell was going on with the radio yesterday, but this damn song came on EVERY time I got in the car to do something… and now it’s stuck in my head…

Personally, I’m old enough to remember the original version by Nancy Sinatra, and I think it’s better… This one is more of a mash up, IMHO…

But I’m ‘sharing’ it anyway… 😛

But it’s also fitting the crap going on, fix one thing, something else comes up…

Lather, rinse, repeat…

And it’s actually been ‘relaxing’ to not see US news, other than through the filter of the BBC…

  1. guh, Guetta. such a hack DJ. i’m sorry this is stuck in your head but i sure as hell won’t be listening to it…heh.

  2. No, that is not the Nancy Sinatra version, but it is just as bad. And I’m so old I remember seeing Nancy as a little girl on b&w television. I’m so old I remembe when Moby Dick was a guppy. I’m so old… well, you get the idea.

  3. Having this song bouncing through my head would call for anesthetic ass soon as the sun was over the yardarm.

  4. Yeah, I remember Nancy Sinatra. A barely-talented gal who could barely carry a tune, and wouldn’t have seen any airtime (or a recording contract) if her dad weren’t Ol’ Blue-Eyes.

    This version’s even worse. 🙂

  5. So you remember the first one with Nancy Sinatra, eh?
    As I hear it, you remember when the Beatles came to America, too…and Glen Miller’s first live concert. ‘zat true?


  6. She had her moment…remember “these boots are made for walking”. For a short period of time she was “hotter than a $30 fur coat’ !!

  7. Usually, I’m better versed on music from “before my time” but I have to admit that my first exposure to this song was in the movie Kill Bill. 😛

  8. That song was written by Sunny for Cher. Being a wimpy downer song, she did it once and let it die.

    Nancy’s was the copy-cat version, but it was Nancy’s that went into Kill Bill and caused a resurgence of the song.

    And yes, I’m old enough to remember both.

    • Bill- Thanks, don’t think I ever heard the Cher version… Sounds like I didn’t miss much there… 🙂

  9. Thank goodness Bill posted! I was convinced it was Cher, don’t believe I ever heard the Nancy version. I don’t remember Glen Miller’s first live concert but did see the Beatles live at Comisky (spelling?) Park in Chicago (1965). Their amps/speakers wouldn’t do a bar band proud these days. They were plugged into the Park’s speaker system, which wasn’t meant for music. Couldn’t see who was out there (from the second deck), couldn’t hear over the screaming. Every warm up band that came out, the place would errupt until people realized it wasn’t the Beatles.
