Weird Wednesday Woo: Oblivion Neutron Bomb

"Oblivion Neutron Bomb" was what my Dad used to call Olivia Newton John. Hi-larious. As "Dad jokes" always are...

But then again, he's a big Johnny Cash fan and maybe he knew about her 1977 album of disco-fied country covers. With apologies to music and lovers of good music everywhere, here's Olivia's tortured and torturing version of Ring of Fire. Burn, baby, burn indeed:

I have no idea who any of the dancers are or where this clip came from but it is FABULOUS and should never have been linked to this aural assault in any way. The last time such a horrible noise troubled this blog it was courtesy of Florence Foster Jenkins, and at least she was singing with love and integrity rather than with the aim of making a quick buck.

  1. Thank gods for the mute button!

    I'm not good at dating vintage clips of dancers, but am assuming they're from a period when bellybuttons were a no-no, given the high waistlines.

    And, apparently, from a period where standing like John Wayne was the height of elegance!
