MP3 Monday - R.I.P. Tammy Faye Bakker

Poor ole Tammy Faye Bakker is dead. As a resident of Charlotte, NC in the 1980s, I had a near-front row seat to the mid 1980s scandals that sunk the Jim and Tammy Faye ministry and their Christian themepark, Heritage VIllage, USA. The Charlotte Observer gleefully kept us informed of every misstep and financial impropriety up until the money shot: the revelation of Jim's adultery with Jessica Hahn and the hush money to keep her quiet. It was the decade of the holy terror bimbo trinity: Jessica Hahn, Donna Rice, and Fawn Hall. Good times my friend, good times. (Give yourself a cookie if you can name the other two disgracees.)

Welp, anyhoo, Ms. Bakker like any good televangelist cut many albums. This track, "The Ballad of Jim and Tammy" is her 1987 swipe at Jerry Falwell who waded into their scandal-ridden ministry to help "save" it. This is her "Ballad of John and Yoko" - you wanna know what happened, download my friend and let Tammy Faye sing it to you in her own words.

NEXT WEEK ... Hey, that Simpsons movie is out then? We'll do something for that next time, honest. in the meantime, if we get enough comments, I'll upload the A-sides of the 12" Sutra single I got this track from: Tammy Faye's "Farewell We Love You" and "God Bless America."
