Heavy Rotation: 'Justified and Ancient'


I don't think the world will ever hear another song as fabulous as this bizarre pairing of the KLF and Tammy Wynette back in '92.

Heh, that's funny that you posted this, as I just stumbled across KLF's MySpace page a couple weeks ago. I LOVE this song. It's one of my most treasured singles. I love the remixes.

Leslie Jordan should do the re-mix!

I love this song! I had the cassingle and played it constantly! It gets pretty decent rotation in my iTunes library, too.

I remember that Tammy Wynette said in an interview that she had no idea what the lyrics meant, lol.

Brilliant post -- and the timing is uncanny. Just last night I was wondering, "Can you be justified if you're middle-aged? Or do you have to be ancient? Hmmm ..." Something to think about.

Always loved this song! It would be hilarious to see Brother Boy perform this.

Robert Anton Wilson's influence lingers on...

Can you see the fnords?

This is from one of my all-time fave CDs. I'll never forget seeing a gay bar full of people line-dancing to this song. It seemed so wrong, yet so, so right.
