Oh Reba. Nobody does Southern Gothic like Reba. I’ve been big time into Southern Gothic lately, even more so than usual. Is there anything better than a murder ballad?
This song is so rad. Bobbie Gentry is the queen of Southern Gothic, and she wrote one of my all time favourite songs, Fancy, perhaps the saddest frigging song ever recorded.
And as Johnny Cash calls her, Our Mississippi River Delta Queen. Yep:
And then twenty years later, Reba get a hold of that tune and just CRANKS IT AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
Oh, and we watched Winter’s Bone last night. A fine entry in the Southern gothic canon. Watch it, it’s soooooooo good. Jennifer Lawrence is frigging raw and amazing.
