In honor of the last post, I did a YouTube search for the song that I was spurred to remember – Don’t Fence Me In – a western classic and a perfectly American expression of the universal desire for unfettered movement.

You have your choice of recordings:

Bob Hope on the Muppet Show (this blogger’s fave!!)

Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters

Interesting mash-up with scenes from The Oklahoma Kid which have a bit of a political slant.

Willy Nelson (which someone set to images form the Lion King – i dunno)

ABBA (wtf!!!!!!! this is included strictly for wtf-value)
