6 Reasons Lee Hazlewood Is Worth Your Time

May 5, 2010

1.) This photo.

2.) Serge had his Brigitte Bardot. Hazlewood had his Ann-Margret, Nancy Sinatra, and so many more. Compare “Bonnie et Clyde” to “Some Velvet Morning.” Both sexy in their own incomprehensible ways.

3.) Like Jarvis Cocker, he wrote a hit for Nancy Sinatra. Jarvis had “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time,” and Hazlewood had “These Boots Were Made For Walkin.'”

Jarvis.

Lee.

4.) The Lee Hazlewood-Nancy Sinatra duet “Summer Wine” is fucking amazing.

5.) Hazlewood was an ambassador of Americana music in Sweden in the 60s. This song, “Let’s Take A Walk Down Valhallavägen,” was a country song about a street in Stockholm.

6.) He wore his outfit while she wore hers.
