I love iTunes because it helps me find random tracks by my favorite artists that I had no idea existed. One of the names I throw in the search engine from time to time is Olivia Newton-John, the first artist that I remember actually liking as a young child. Little did I know she’s been recording country music again, apparently for a television version of the Sordid Lives movie she was in a decade ago.
I’ve never seen the flick, but I picked up the movie soundtrack a while back. It included a stunning and heartfelt acoustic performance of the Carter Family classic “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
Tonight’s recommendation comes from the television show’s soundtrack, and while this song may not be a country classic yet, it certainly deserves to be. In fact, I’d like to see Carrie Underwood cut it for her next album.
I present to you Olivia Newton-John, “You Look Like a Dick to Me.”
Top that, Country Universians.
