tight person of the day: patsy cline

I have a karaoke dream of doing a Patsy Cline song. The thing is, Patsy is impossible to do. I would butcher it completely. I mean, I would butcher even a terrible Tiffany song, but the point is, how embarrassing to sing Patsy in front of a group of people? I just really want to pretend to be her for one minute.

Look at this tight laid-back picture series of Patsy! I love how casual she is. I just love her. She is it for me. Lately, I've been getting into buying crazy old country 45s. I picked up a copy of Patsy singing "Walking Dream" and I pulled out my other stuff I already had and I've been living in Patsy town for a few days.

Patsy is a totally baller country singer, as you should know by now. Her voice is one of a kind. Whenever she sings, turtle doves might as well come flying out of her throat because it's so sweet and smooth and wonderful. In the late fifties, Patsy was mostly recording honky-tonky stuff and appearing at the Grand Ole Opry for shows. YOU KNOW, JUST MAKING A LIVING. She hit it big with "Walkin' After Midnight" in 1957. The rest is history. You know all the Patsy hits. "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces," and "She's Got You" just to name a few. I think most country artists would say Patsy is a huge influence and is still one of the greatest vocalists of all time in any genre. Patsy died tragically in a plane crash in 1963 at the age of 30. So young! At least she got in some super tight recordings before then.

So here's a super tight little Patsy song for you. Also, please check out Patsy in action. Making this game looks easy!
