In Furtherance Of My Evil Plan To Resurrect Wichita Lineman And Make It The Official Cover Song Of The Twenty-Teens: You Mix A Hell Of A Caucasian, Jackie, Version



One is torn between grudging admiration for the fake harmonica sounds, and plain awe at the addition of a glockenspiel, evidently played with the feet, to the whole spiel. Roy from The IT Crowd sings pretty good, too. Like so many things in life, it's either genius -- or it isn't.

Dad's appearance at 3:11 showcases the essential utility of the song. Wichita Lineman is not too old, or too square, to have lost pop music's only essential value: to drive your parents up the wall.

I can't wait to see what happens when the snow's up to the window sills and we run out of linseed oil.

It was a thrill to see Pat Paulsen again, after all these years. He got the guitar the right way round, too!

Nice knot board on the shelf! And the animal noises were cool, too.

Alcohol always adds color to a situation. Not saying good color or bad color, just that it does add color. And horse sounds.

If this one hadn't picked up the pace, I was going to record it myself!

Trust me, you don't want that.
