These Boots

This old film of Nancy Sinatra performing "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" just screams Nineteen Sixty-Six.

Click here.

Even as a kid, I loved that sliding bass line.

Also, could those dresses BE any shorter??

A friend of mine's grandmother once told his sister, "Girl, in that dress you can practically see what you had for lunch!"

Daddy *loved* Nancy Sinatra and "These Boots" was one of the few LPs our family owned that was not Christmas or classical. Maybe Daddy just like the way she jiggled.

Anyway, I would put on Daddy's cowboy boots and try to do that little go-go dance step thingy when he played Nancy.

I remember Nancy Sinatra was risqué and controversial when she hit it big because of performances in skimpy dresses like this video. It seems neither risqué or controversial now, just a little cheesey. My, how times have changed.
