She's Got You, awesome song. Plus in this video, Patsy is working that headband.

Bless Patsy's heart, she could have used a good stylist. Talk about raw talent. I didn't link to that video because of the stylistic blunder.
In Patsy's defense: all those years at MGM and Judy came up with some doozies later in her career. Talk about high, "my pants may be on backwards but my hair's on straight"!

I believe she's wearing the headband to cover the stitches and scar she sustained in a car accident. I believe that's one of her last appearences.

You are right, Will, and by no means did I mean for my post to offend. To think that brilliant talent was gone so suddenly, Patsy is an icon. Love her!

They don't make them like Patsy any more. Love all her songs, but these all give me good memories of long car rides and a CD on repeat.

I'm too young to appreciate her. But here is a great dance mix using Patsy Cline done by Sharam and Kid Cudi.

I remember getting a PC box set when I was in my early 20s (about 20 yrs ago, it was a Christmas gift my mom didn't want so I took it not really knowing much about her) and it was all I listened to for months. Her voice had me under some kind of spell.
The album "It's the Talk of the Town" by Boulevard of Broken Dreams had the same effect on me. The female voices have the same sort of dreamy other worldly quality. Check it out on Amazon, they cut off most the vocals but you can get an idea. Highly recommend it to Patsy fans even though it's not country.

Will at R10 is correct--Patsy had part of her forehead literally peeled back after being thrown through a windshield. She had made plans to have some plastic surgery done when she was killed in the plane crash.

Age has nothing to do with it. A voice is a voice & hers was one of a kind.
I don't have a favorite because everything she did was so fine. "Crazy" is a particularly lovely song, written by Willie Nelson (who never improved on that) -- "Faded Love" may be the best use of her voice, though "Walking After Midnight" comes close. Just impossible to choose -- "She's Got You" may be the one I most enjoy listening to because it's so sad.

The evolution of her voice once she got to record some decent material in her later career was stunning. With the right training, she probably could have sung opera. One of a kind voice, right up there with Judy, Barbra, and Karen, to name a few.

Patsy died in a plane crash at age 30. She would be 78 today if she had lived.
Can you imagine the music she would have put out over the last 48 years?

I was in a bar in Mexico and they were playing this raucous honky-tonk song on the sound system that was incredible. I asked who it was, and the bartender said "Potsy Kleen". After mentally translating that I figured out it was Patsy Cline, but no one knew the title of the song. %0D %0D If I hadn't been so full of tequila I might have remembered more about it, but all that stays with me was her fabulous voice.

"Pat Benatar started as an opera singer."%0D %0D ENOUGH of this shit about Pat Benatar being an opera singer! She was NEVER an opera singer! She STUDIED opera, but she was never an opera singer! And why the fuck mention her in a thread about Patsy Cline? Benatar isn't good enough to smell Patsy's shit. %0D %0D %0D %0D

In answer to your question, OP, yes. Anyone who is not a Cline fan is "Crazy."

Blue Moon of Kentucky! My ex's family had a weekend home in Gore VA-- that's where Patsy was from. There were still oldtimers around who considered her a cheap whore, even all those years later. Folks in Gore ain't very forgiving...

Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, Crazy,etc., etc., etc. I love Patsy Cline. I saw that movie, "Sweet Dreams," on cable a few years ago, and I fell in love with her. I started listening to all her stuff.

Thanks for the links! Some great Patsy Cline sngs. But speaking of modern day singer, I found this tribute to Patsy by Kelly Clarkson. A bluesy arraongement of Walkin' After Midnight. Kelly kills it.! This was an eye opener. I love Patsy. No one can touch her. But I do like what Kelly did with this cover.

Patsy Cline- no one else like her- I love her song" Poor Man's Roses". Her voice was a true wonder. She was never anyone else- Just Patsy. Unlike Lady Ga Ga or Madonna- she just needed her voice. Ella, Billie, Judy, Sarah, Patsy- unique for their time and any other.

R29 is telling the truth. One of Patsy's biographers was doing research in the Gore area and one of the locals told her, "Let me tell you something, Patsy Cline was nothin' but a whore." I think that's a little harsh, but Patsy did screw around with more than one married man in her day.

The woman has been dead for 47 years and all those backward morons can say is she was a whore. I bet none of them talk about the married men she was involved with.

One of the very first 45's I ever got was one by Patsy. "Walkin' After Midnite" was on the A side and the B side was "A Poor Man's Roses (or A Rich Man's Gold".) I wore that sucker out, been a fan ever since. I love the "cry" in her voice. %0D %0D (Beverly D'Angelo was a way better Patsy than Jessica Lange.)

Patsy Cline's untimely death is one of the great tragedies in music history. She was only 30 when she died, and when you think of all the songs she would have sung it's a shame. People wrote songs specifically for her.
