Achy Breaky Heart

Is it just me, or does “Achy Breaky Heart” sound a little bit like Tulsa Time? Not a lot. Just a little bit. Like the way “Surfin’ U.S.A.” sounds just a little bit like “Sweet Little Sixteen”.


Dear Og that song is 22 years old now.

22 years? Tulsa Time was first released in 1978.

In lines like “I had no bus’ness leavin’ and nobody would be grievin’”, the beat sounds similar to “but don’t tell my heart, my achy, breaky heart” to me. I of course have Tulsa Time on permanent rotation. The other one, I know barely a little more than what I quoted.

It is kinda funny to think that it is generally reviled and to imagine that butt-bobbing shyster somehow worked her way out during it.

I wonder, had it not been for Achy Breaky Heart, would the world have ever known of Miley Cyrus?

That song is like TWO… TWO fuck you’s in one`.

The song that keeps on giving I tells ya’.
