“Wichita Lineman” Part One

Late night host Craig Ferguson sheds some light on why this song is so popular beyond the traditional country/western fan base.

Here’s the Crown Prince of Reggae, Bob Marley’s favorite singer, Dennis Brown, who was the master of “lovers rock” a sub-genre of reggae. Of course, this song was made famous by Glen Campbell.

Sammy Davis, Jr. gives an interesting twist with a big band and nightclub vibe. I think this is from an album named “Something for Everyone.”

The Dells with a classic soul rendition. “Oh Wichita! Wichita!”

This is going to be a two-part post because there are so many. But this is probably my favorite from REM….
