These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

I know, I know, I put this song on this blog before, a lifetime ago it seems now.But I got it in the head and I think that regardless of that famous scene in Full Metal Jacket, it has artistic merit, whatever I said in my first post about it. It's full of fetishist subtext (no wonder Kubrick used it), rough poetry and it has a great beat. There is freshness and genuine, unstaged energy in Nancy Sinatra's interpretation. Maybe this is just an impression I have. But I put the song here again, just because.

Love everything about this, the movie is a classic and so is the song! Now I will be singing this frisky tune all weekend, not that I am complaining :-)
