It's a hell of a thing, singin' a song.

And not too badly, either. This is from an old compilation featuring people like Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Dean and Merv Griffin (!) singing the hit songs of the era. Apparently, back when Clint was on tv he was marketed as a singer as well, and he recorded tunes such as the Sons of the Pioneers' "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and other cowboy classics. I actually think he does a pretty good job on this one. It gets elevated to something more than just a curiosity. You can imagine David Lynch using it in one of his creepy movies. It's evocative...of what, I'm not sure. (Oh, right--some mountains somewhere).
