      @bbstl,
      Maestro’s music is epic indeed. I cannot imagine the spaghetti Western genre without it. and I recall when Hugo Montenegro’s version of this was a big hit on AM radio when I was a kid. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nice down-home rendition from Chenango County, central New York State [due east of the Finger Lakes viniculture region]. LOL at the mention of artificial respiration!

    As Mr. Vollmer points out, the lyrics are morbid — every bit as morbid as fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm (how apropos!) and Hans Christian Andersen (anyone for macabre, possessed red shoes?!), and certain Mother Goose nursery rhymes.

    As for โ€œOh My Darling Clementine,โ€ it is set in the days of the California Gold Rush of 1849.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Gold_Rush

    I suspect that it was unusual for women to have size 9 tootsies back then, which is why Clementine wore sandals made out of recycled wooden boxes in which dried salt herring had been packaged. I recall seeing one (or was it from salt cod?!) at my grandparents’ home in Boston when I was a kid. It was probably on Grandpa’s workbench in the basement. The box had a sliding lid — which was why Clementine’s footwear was “without topses.”

    What a great rendition of the song by The Weavers. Since it was issued as a 78RPM disc, it doesn’t have as many verses as some of the more recent video versions.

    Mitch Miller, Maestro of the Singalong, Dies at 99
    By Richard Severo, 08/02/2010
    https://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/03/arts/music/03miller.html

    Before karaoke and noraebang, there was SING ALONG WITH MITCH on the TV. Along with THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW, it was a popular family program that featured old American popular music, including the old standards of Baby Boomers’ grandparents’ youth (roughly the 1890s through the Roaring Twenties).

    Here’s a taste:

      @kiara,
      I’m watching. Just haven’t been able to keep up with the comments. Me likey — aside from the FL character’s stalkerish possessiveness, which creeps me out to the max. (However, Seo Yea-ji is doing a dandy job portraying the writer of truly grim fairy tales.) As I expected, Oh Jung-se is knocking it out of the park with his portrayal of Sang-tae. Dang, what a terrific actor. I also can’t get over Kim Joo-hun as Ko Moon-young’s publisher / adult supervision. What a switcheroo from his appearance and vibe in RDTK2. It’s a blast to see Kim Soo-hyun again, which takes a little of the sting out of Woo Do-hwan’s enlistment this coming week.

    Moo-yeon’s duet with Eun-joo = Cuteness Overload. I stumbled across this 12-episode drama yesterday and binged it. After all this time, it was exact the remedy I needed for Orabeoni’s fate in 100 DAYS MY PRINCE. It may even help bullet-proof my heart in the run-up to the finale of THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH.

        @ndlessjoie mugyuljoie,
        My heart sank when I realized that yet another drama’s rhythm has been knocked into a cocked hat. Better to have skipped it entirely last week instead of making the intended overnight cliffhanger last a whole week. It’s cruel and inhumane, I say. Sheesh!
