It doesn’t matter that you don’t know who Eddy Arnold is.  And I don’t want anyone to think that I am mister country music – but I can appreciate the fact that the guy started out during the Great Depression, and recorded his last album in 2005 (where Depressions are called: “recessions”).  That’s pretty bad ass.

Some people think he died because his wife of 56 years died not too long ago.  You hear about that a lot with old people.  Their spouse dies, then they die, cause they don’t know what else to do.  I think that’s pretty crappy – so I plan on going to visit a lot of widows and widowers with brochures for amusement parks and other distracting crap.  I’m that kind of guy.

If you want to hear an Eddy Arnold song that someone should sample for a rap song or something, you can listen after the jump.

BTW – that site MP3Space is pretty sweet – upload a song to it and put the link in the comments. It’s like Limewire but with no spyware.
