Yes. She'd look damn good wearing a potato sack.

Oh, Bobbie! I wish this woman was more well-known than she seems to be in the pop culture consciousness. "Ode To Billy Joe" is still as powerful as ever, a haunting and flawless piece of sui generis Southern Gothic. I confess, I'm not terribly familiar with anything she did after that album (wasn't she hooked up with Glen Campbell at one point?) but still, what a lady.

oh yeah...Ode To Billy Joe used give me the creeps..in a good way..a true southern gothic..Whenever I hear it now,I'm transported back to those times it came wafting over the airwaves like a phantom..

Ode To Billy Joe was made into a great little movie & gave a good "explanation" as to why he jumped of the Tallahatchie Bridge.
Bobbie did indeed have a couple of real big hits dueting with Glen Campbell but then married a millionaire & retired.
