I’ve spent the last couple of days trying to sneak in some SXSW music (and have been mildly successful), which has led me to download some new music and add some new bands on Spotify for the first time in a while. More on that in an upcoming post.
But in the meantime, it got me thinking about music…and red hair. For a pretty legit list of the top 5 songs about redheads, check out this Hairpin article. Jolene, yes!
And to contribute my little addition: I can’t tell you how many times this little Garth Brooks ditty has come on and people have gone out of their way to point at me during the line “Pick him up at seven and they’re headin’ to the rodeo/Momma’s on the front porch screamin’ out her warning/Girl you better get your red head/Back in bed before the morning.”
So, an ode to the last few days of spring break. And wild redheads.
Garth Brooks – Ain’t Goin’ Down (‘Til the Sun Comes Up)
