Thirty Days of Music: Day Nine.


Day 9 -
A song that you can dance to: "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus



It was the fall of 1993, and for some ungodly reason, America had fallen in love with country line dancing. Unfortunately, not even my high school marching band proved immune to the phenomenon.

Thankfully, I can't seem to find any pictures of the homecoming halftime show in question - I had the good sense to leave my camera at home, apparently - but imagine, if you will, a bunch of teenagers in ill-fitting polyester band uniforms and Pee Wee Herman shoes trotting around in formation on a football field, doing the Achy Breaky and desperately trying not to fall over. Dignity died that day.

(At least we can take some comfort in knowing we weren't the only ones...)
