Walkin' After Midnight

When I was a kid I remember thinking that Patsy Cline's "Walking After Midnight" was timeless and now as an adult I believe it always will be. My dad used to play Patsy Cline cd's in his car when we would go on road trips and it was on those long car rides that he peaked my interest in her music. But more than anything there really is something about "Walking After Midnight" specifically as a song and the way that she sings it that gets me everytime. I'm not sure if it's the hopeful tone of the lyrics, or the honest heartache in her voice but the overall innocence keeps this song so timeless, classic, beautiful and untainted. I am so grateful for Patsy Cline -- her stunning delivery and a song that is so pure and true even after all of these years. Thanks Dad! xoxoxo

Amazing! I never knew what Patsy looked like. Love the fashions and the style in which they recorded this. So vintage!
