Tupelo Honey Playlist 2/28/12

"It's a fine line between stupid and clever." Not really but it makes a good Spinal Tap quote. I hate to admit this but there's an awful lot of stupid songs that I really love. I freely admit to being a melody junky. It's melody that gets me first. If I find myself toe-tapping and diggin' the rhythm I'm hooked. If I then find myself listening to dumb lyrics - well, let's just say I cut a lot of slack.

Tonight I played a classic example of this. Rod Picott's "Kerosene" might be as stupid a song can be. However I love it. Eveytime I hear it the rhythm junky in me takes over. 

Do you have a stupid song that you know is lame yet you love to hear? Email me your tune, I'd love to know I'm not the only guilty party. shotgunmajors@gmail.com
