The divine Skeeter Davis’ take on the mournful pop ballad End of the World, one of her biggest 60’s hits, has, recently, found ironic meaning in such horror type fare as 2010’s Legion and a 2013 episode of Under the Dome.
Perhaps even scarier, though, in real life, the active Davis, a female country music legend, took on her right winging Southern fathers with the fine 1970 album It’s Hard to Be a Woman. Produced with a sympathetic understanding of a woman’s rights (in and out of love) and containing a very clear anti-Vietnam statement (When You Gonna Bring Our Soldiers Home), this daring LP surely must have ruffled plenty of boastful farmhouse feathers.
Still, Davis, known for her multi-layered pop sound, remains as clear and sweet as a dew drop bell on that album’s title track.
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
