Friday Night Videos

If you somehow missed it, yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the closure of the Chicken Ranch brothel in La Grange, Texas. To carry that theme over to today, obviously I considered featuring ZZ Tops' "La Grange" as today's song, as the album, Tres Hombres also celebrated its 40th anniversary this week. But I've featured "La Grange" before, and don't like to repeat myself. Likewise, songs from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas come to mind, but 1) that's a little too obvious and 2) I've already featured some of the best from the movie soundtrack. So instead, today we get a flashback to the no. 1 song from this week in 1973, and it's a good one: "Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown" by the legendary Jim Croce!
