Track of the Day: Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan

File this Florida songwriting duo under: I'll Have a Double Shot of Whatever They're Having. I mean when was the last time you had so many songs about chickens at your fingertips? Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan were born to duet together--legend has it they popped out of their mammas in the same Buffalo, NY hospital. The couple's co-written songs hit the country charts 15 times between 1969 and 1975, but the real nuggets have found their ways onto various comps over the ages. I stumbled onto Jack & Misty through Nashville Sputnik , which has an awesomely absurd song about a chicken that looks like Hitler ("Dance of the Living Dead Chickens"). I couldn't find a legal version of that one to post online today, though, so instead I'll send you here, where you can give a listen to some other fowl ditties, including "The Legendary Chicken Fairy" and "Tennessee Bird Walk."
