Yodeling. Or Patsy Cline and Me--And Roy
I've been thinking I'd like to learn to yodel. Because I watched a YouTube video of Patsy Cline singing "Lovesick Blues" yesterday. I'm not much of a country music fan, but if I decided to become one, it would be because of Patsy Cline. She was one of a kind. I don't really understand the "Everybody Look/Sound Alike-ness" of the genre now. It seems to me that it's all about the song itself and not the singing style of the singer. It's the song that's the hit, and any of a number of blondes in heavy eye makeup could have brought it. ANYWAY, that Patsy Cline could yodel. So could Roy Rogers--you may recall I have a certain admiration for Roy Rogers. So maybe I want to yodel. It's not too late, is it?
