Happy Father's Day

Here are some important songs performed by men in time for Father's Day.Tell me what all the other men think about these tunes on my weblog, Manslide. My mother is coming to Cottage Grove to help me remove these and many other music videos and all four Google applications, including the two Google Chrome apps and the Blogger dot com app, as well.

Comedy singer and novelty songwriter Jim Nesbitt tells how "The Husband is the Last One to Know" about his life, his marriage and his various excursions.

Speaking of Nesbitt, Cledus Maggard and the Citizen's Band broke through the novelty-song barrier with his legendary "The White Knight," which is about a trucker terrorized by a Georgia highway patrolman's speed trap, according to Wikipedia. Maggard went on to record a few more novelty records for Mercury Nashville, among them "Kentucky Moonrunner," "The Banana Bowl," and the sentimental "Cledus's Dictionary of C.B. Lingo," and co-write Reba McEnrire's critically acclaimed early-1980's love ballad, "My Turn."

Remember Buddy Holly's heartwarming shock-hop cult favorite "Not Fade Away?" Canada's three-piece power rock band Rush covered it in 1973.

Rayburn Anthony may not be best known for "Shadows Of Love;" however, 1979's "Fire in the Night" hit #1 on the Billboard country chart. Meanwhile, here is Rayburn performing "Shadows Of Love."

Lastly, Glenn Sutton had a slew of novelty singles on Mercury Nashville during the 1960's and 1970's, among them "Maurice the Police," "The Football Card," and a number of heartwarning country ballads, including "Almost Persuaded."
