  1. Interesting that you paired this with Ode to Billy Joe.
    The two have a lot is common — year, region, allusive lyrics, brevity, and, ultimately, greatness.

    The technology has really changed —
    “My baby sent me a Fed Ex…”
    “My baby sent me a fax…”
    “My baby sent me an email…”
    “My baby sent me an IM…”
    “My baby sent me a text…”
    “My baby tweeted me…”

  2. I’ve been running a lot of songs from the same years — this was 1967. It’s fascinating, how much good music was crammed into just a few years.
