Friday Night Videos

Back when I listened to the Doctor Demento Show regularly (that was back when you could actually find it on broadcast radio stations) one of the most popular country songs that made repeated appearances on the Funny Five was "May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose" by Little Jimmy Dickens. It's a great song, not only funny and clever with its curses, but it features some pretty darn good guitar work. I particularly like this vintage video of it, which shows the limitations of early video technology--every flash of his sequined jacket renders black as it blows out the recording's dynamic range.

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Flatt & Scruggs.
