“I can’t buy no beer”

Hank Williams – “My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It” (1949) and “Dear John” (1950) from 40 Greatest Hits (1978)

After Jordy’s post on the Flying Burrito Brothers a month or so back, I’ve decided to try to get into country music. You’d think that living in the South would help, but people just want to talk about Radiohead. Oh well. Hank sang soulful tunes with such perfect vocal control. Every little crack in his voice–and there aren’t many–means something huge. Plus those lyrics can’t be beat.
