Sweetlips Put-Down

For a change of pace I’m fleshing out this post via Postach.io–a beta blogging platform that works off of Evernote.

Since Evernote is where I create and curate my blog posts and related links (as many others do as well), makes sense that this might someday become a fleshed-out blogging medium.

So here’s a little snippet of trivia, if you’re so inclined, for a drizzly Sunday:

Sweetlips don’t take no crap from the likes of Jim Reeves (1960 country hit) and she did NOT after all, tell the man there with her he’d have to go.

Jeanne Black sings “He’ll Have to Stay” after Jim Reeves sings the contrary point of view.
