Morning Song – Rebel Rouser

February 6, 2017

Okay, so it’s not Lady Gaga diving from the stadium roof to open her Super Bowl halftime show last night, but in fairness to Duane Eddy and the Rebels, they didn’t have a $10 million production budget…just a used forklift on Dick Clark’s Saturday Night Beech-Nut Show.

Oh, and they had “Rebel Rouser”—which is basically Tennessee Ernie Ford’s “Who’s Gonna Show Your Pretty Little Feet” speeded up and with a backbeat (which Dick Clark’s audience didn’t yet have the hang of in 1958, but that’s another story)—and that’s not nothing.

It’s Monday morning after the best sports day in this little blog’s history (and not just, or even primarily, because the Patriots pulled off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history).

What’s happening where you are?
