August 25, 1995
Alabama tops the chart with a very ordinary single.
The Road to No. 1
After returning to No. 1 with the second single from Greatest Hits Vol. III, Alabama reached No. 1 with the first two singles from In Pictures.
The No. 1
In this irritatingly catchy song, a girl’s value is defined by what she ain’t.
If she was an ordinary girl, she’d apparently:
- love carelessly
- fall for the usual lines
- be won over by empty promises
- want diamonds and pearls
- believe midnight alibis
- indulge foolish games
- allow lines to be crossed
Hey, if you can’t have this extraordinary girl, get yourself an ordinary one. They apparently have no standards and you can lie, cheat, and then bribe them into complacency.
Is this how bro country got started?
The Road From No. 1
Next up for the band is a Linda Davis cover that we’ll feature toward the end of 1995.
“She Ain’t Your Ordinary Girl” gets an F.
