THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
582-Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.-Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town.
1969- Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 1.56.It was a brave decision to record this song as the Vietnam War was raging.
Rogers would perform the song in a jovial manner and the crowd would often clap and sing along,so to some it was seen as disrespectful to veterans.Rogers said ‘We are there primarily to entertain,if we can entertain by providing thought provoking songs,then that’s all to the good.’Incidentally ‘Ruby’ wasn’t written about the Vietnam War,it was in fact written about the Korean War.
‘You’ve painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair.’
