Chart positions

This show was 81st in the global indie rock chart.

As mentioned last month on the web site, the recent Ken Burns doc on country music pretty much blew my mind. I may not have been actively anti-country but I was never a fan, just generally ignoring the whole genre. Sixteen hours of spellbinding television later, I have, to paraphrase Hank Williams, seen the light. Not because I now love everything I used to not care for, but because I now know the genre's origin story, bringing a huge area of music into my range of knowledge and interest. It feels inspiring. Anyway, yes, here's a Hank Williams song, in and among the more usual (but still unusual) array of genres and decades. As maybe a tie-in to what I've generally done here, I didn't select a Hank tune from the documentary, but one that I had first heard via Elvis Costello: "Why Don't You Love Me," slightly re-named, was the lead track on his out-of-left-field, widely misunderstood record of country music covers back in 1981.
