    I liked this line:

    Hazlewood was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2005 and released his final album, "Cake or Death" in 2006.

    His duet with Nancy Sinatra on "Jackson" was referenced in a recent USA Today page about the music of 1967.

    These Boots Were Made for Walking is one of the sexiest videos ever. And one of the best bass lines ever.

    Condolences to Phaedra.
     
  7. Too fast, smash.
    That was going to be my request.
    Art Bell used to play it every night.
    "One velvet mornin' when I'm...straight..."

    I'm sorry .... I really am .... and I know I'm probably being ignorant here ... but what's "Phaedra?"
     
  9. Quite possibly the weirdest record ever to make Top 40 radio. And technically titled, "Some Velvet Morning." Lyrics to follow, but they don't do justice to the funhouse spookiness of the arrangement.

    Print: Nancy Sinatra - Some Velvet Morning Lyrics print version

    Lee:
    Some velvet morning when I'm straight
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    and how she gave me life
    and how she made it in
    Some velvet morning when I'm straight

    Nancy:
    Flowers growing on the hill
    Dragonflies and daffodils
    Learn from us very much
    Look at us but do not touch
    Phaedra is my name

    Lee:
    Some velvet morning when I'm straight
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    and how she gave me life
    and how she made it in
    Some velvet morning when I'm straight

    Nancy:
    Flowers are the things we knew
    Secrets are the things we grew
    Learn from us very much
    Look at us but do not touch
    Phaedra is my name

    Lee:
    Some velvet morning when I'm straight
    Nancy:
    Flowers growing on the hill
    Lee:
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    Nancy:
    Dragonflies and daffodils
    Lee:
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    Nancy:
    Learn from us very much
    Lee:
    And how she gave me life
    Nancy:
    Look at us but do not touch
    Lee:
    and how she made it in

    That's such a great, creepy record. I think some of his old albums were re-released a few years ago on a label run by Steve Shelly (drummer for Sonic Youth)
