Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs

Another one of those weird kind-of-folk/kind-of-not, bands that I like to listen to sometimes. This duo is very prolific and I've only got two of their albums. Their best tracks from those, like You can't buy a gun, Burn your fun, and My 45 are really catchy, but they have some misses too. Worth a listen, if you like that sort of music. Would be a treat to hear live I think (YouTube video is FTW).

Sounds like: Something off of the Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack.

Lyrics:

Well I swear I didn’t do it
It was way before my time
and I ain’t never done no wrong
that Jesus had to die!

Oh holy Moses,
Lord have mercy,
Glory be!

Well I’m gettin’ high for Jesus,
’cause it got so low for me...
