The Best Songs of 1952

2. Honky Tonk Blues – Hank Williams

This one feels like home. As I said before, I’m from Alabama myself. I don’t miss much beyond the food, but this song really puts me in an interesting place. I love the vocal inflections that Hank uses and even though I find that little yodeling thing really irritating when most singers do it, Hank pulls it off like nobody else. Beautiful song.

1. Kaw-Liga – Hank Williams

Now this is one entertaining story song. A wooden cigar store Indian falls in love with another statue in the antique store across the street. Hank sang many songs of unrequited love, but none quite like this one.
