Whose Barn? What Barn? My Barn!

They don't call him the Killer for nothing. Here is a killer take on a killer tune. I love the hair-flyin', foot-stompin', knee-knockin' thing that he does:



Not that you're warmed up, here's a great track from Jerry Lee's classic live album, Live at the Star Club:

Jerry Lee Lewis – Money (buy album).

Don't say Jerry wasn't versatile. Here's one of the best all-time country drinking songs (and country song titles):

Jerry Lee Lewis – What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made A Loser Out Of Me) (buy album).

If you haven't already, get some Jerry Lee in your collection today.

To sample a few more, check out Outlaw Blues.

UPDATE!:

Snuh's comment reminded me of the Hank Thompson version of What's Made Milwaukee Famous:

Hank Thompson – What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made A Loser Out Of Me) (buy album).

I believe Jerry Lee's version is the definitive version. It was released first and I hear it more often.

This brings up something I've been pondering about of late - who's considered to have recorded the definitive version of What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made A Loser Out Of Me) - Jerry Lee or Hank Thompson?

Rod Stewart's version isn't too shabby, either. I first heard this via an extended play 8-Track I picked up when the woolly mammoth still roamed the land (BTW - I agree, one of the best drinking songs of all-time).
