My heart is on damn fire!
First, O.M.G., second, DAMN!!!! #FANDAMNTASTIC, that is my word for the new Elvira video and song by Home Free and The Oak Ridge Boys. Oh my, my heart is pumping and my hands are shaking over this song. It is Holy Sweet Potato Pie good (or whatever your favorite pie is)! I keep playing the song as I write this and it gets better every time I hear it. I knew it would be amazing, but they blew amazing out of the water and kicked ass!
Each one of these wonderful gentlemen is remarkable. I tip my cowgirl hat to each and every one of them. I predict this video will go viral in twenty four hours. I know the Fries will make sure of it, not to mention the ORB fans. What an unparalleled combination of talent and charisma!
Their harmonies are dynamic, energetic, brilliant and absolutely PERFECT! I could go on and on about how amazing these gentlemen sound together and I’d never be able to get it all in one write up. Oh them basses, “Giddy Up, Oom Poppa Oom Poppa Mow Mow,” and I am in love! Mr. Sterban and Tim, you rock my world and this song! Adam is stellar as usual, but I wasn’t expecting the ambitious presence he had in this song, it was wicked! Mr. Bonsall and Mr. Allen are spectacular and give this sweet lady the love she deserves. Austin continues to blow us away with his powerful and soulful voice. And Rob, well he brings it like only Rob can bring it, smooth! Sorry Rob, but I’m afraid Mr. Golden wins the beard contest (next time, you’ll get ‘em next time). The harmonies from Mr. Golden and Chris, put the scoot in this two stepper and bring it all home. Together this baby has a rocking beat and OOMPH (pun intended). I’m feeling this song all the way down to my toes! I’ve played it about a hundred times and just can’t stop! I may need help, if I don’t surface in a week, come find me. I’ll be in front of my laptop watching the new Elvira video, in a trance!
But what made this video even better, if that’s possible, is the country boy love I see in the video. I got a kick out of Austin getting The Oak Ridge Boys’ autographs on his t-shirt! These fine men look like they are having a blast, with life-long friends. The posse with extraordinary talent! What I would have given to be a fly on the wall when they recorded this video. Not so much to see the antics, but to be in the same room with such all-encompassing talent and vocal nobility.
They sang the hell out of this song! They brought this classic into the future and made it a whole new classic, with the original artists The Oak Ridge Boys and the a cappella yumminess of Home Free. Wow, I am stunned, giddy, bouncing up and down in my chair and just happy as a hungry tick on a fat dog! They have completely out done themselves with this one and the fans are going oom poppa oom poppa mow mow crazy!
Congratulations Oak Ridge Boys and Home Free for one goliath of a collaboration that resulted in a ditty that will have this country hankering for a peek at the beautiful Elvira. I think I have a new favorite Home Free song! And, as Home Free states, a huge "damn good job" to Geoff Castellucci, of Voice Play, for his incredible arrangement of the song! #FANDAMNTASTIC
