Dolly Parton – Jolene at 33 1/3

This has been around for a while but I don’t recall ever mentioning it so I’m going to do so now. Somebody played Jolene by Dolly Parton at the wrong speed and it actually sounds pretty cool, like an indie folk band with a male singer did a cover version of it.

And here is a pretty good mash up.

There are loads of remixes of this track and, while not a fan of Dolly Parton, I think it fair to say she’s a good songwriter, just look at ‘I will always love you’, not my cup of tea, but a massive world wide hit for Whitney Houston.

Finally, because it also puts an entirely different spin on a Parton song, here are The White Stripe, also performing Jolene.
