Mel McDaniel, "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On"
More cowbell, please. That persistent beat pulsing throughout Mel McDaniel's 1985 chart-topper, "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On," was sure to coax all the couples out on the dance floor at the honky-tonks dotting America in the early-to-mid Eighties. This hit would have come at the tail-end of the highly-produced Urban Cowboy movement as George Strait, Reba McEntire, the Judds and Ricky Skaggs stormed the country charts and the country awards shows to move the needle back to more traditional country sounds. Still, those women wearing cowboy hats and designer denim are singing along to every word in this vintage Mel McDaniel clip. Lord, have mercy! H.K.
