    “Whiskey Girl” was Toby’s 11th #1 hit out of his last 13 singles at that time.
    Not much of a song, but he was at his commercial peak.

    I know some will be aware of this, but for those who weren’t–Anne Murray, who had the #1 hit with “He Thinks I Still Care” at this time 40 years ago, also had (on the A-side of this very single) a #8 pop hit with “You Won’t See Me”, the Beatles classic originally recorded for their classic 1965 album RUBBER SOUL.

    Other than the. 2014 entries, I like all of these songs. My favorite of this group is the Hank Snow song – Hank had perfect diction and was always in tune

    I always thought Hank had amazing elocution the way he was able to pull off “I’ve Been Everywhere.”
    Then I heard the original Australian version from Lucky Strike or whatever the hell the guy’s name is.
