The Feb. 17th Love is in Da Blog musical prompt from Bee-Writes is a song about a child’s love. This one gave me a little trouble. I could think of songs about a parent’s love for a child, but not the opposite. I resorted to an Internet search to jog my musical memory.
A Boy Name Sue by Johnny Cash popped up, which made me laugh. While there was a mutual understanding between father and son and grudging respect on the part of the son at the end of the song, but I wouldn’t say the son loved his father.
I did, however, stay in the classic country music genre for the song I chose.
They Don’t Make ‘Em Like My Daddy Anymore by Loretta Lynn
As a single release in April 1974, the song peaked at No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and reached No. 1 on a Canadian country chart. The album, They Don’t Make ‘Em Like My Daddy Anymore, was released on September 2, 1974. The album made it to No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country LP chart.
Until next time,
writing through history one romance upon a time
