Day 219

Bobby Goldsboro- Greatest Hits

I remember the first time I heard his hit, "Honey", I was in the car with my Dad when we were living in Richardson. I was just a teenager and when this came on his KLUV, I swear it was the worst song I've ever heard. Ever!

I still think it's an absolutely horrible song, but now I find it so stupid, I kind of like it. You should read the lyrics sometime. I know, I know, it's about a man's wife dying, but still...

So that's why I kept this record. Just for that one song. But actually, it's not a bad easy listening album at all. The second tune, "The Straight Life" is really fun. Lyrics are still corny as hell though.

Bobby Goldsboro did/has lived a pretty interesting life. Before he became a successful singer in the 60's, he was a guitar player in Roy Orbison's band and also had his own variety show. Now he's a professional painter. Good for him. Kinda strange when you think about it that most people probably don't know who he is now.
