Music: Silver Threads and Golden Needles
Composer/Artist: Wanda Jackson
Although I know plenty of country music (see my previous couple of posts) Wanda Jackson’s pretty much an unknown for me. This is a very TWANGY country song, dare I say it, hillbilly. A song I’d never heard before but a song so typically miserably country I feel like I’ve heard it a hundred times – a dirty stinkin’ cheatin’ husband who thinks by providing handsomely for the little woman he has free license to sample forbidden fruit.
