Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Joey”

Jill Sobule – Sometymes Why

I remember Joey Heatherton well for her innumerable guest appearances on TV in the sixties. Jill Sobule remembers her also, and wrote this quirky song about her. Her story was a tragic one, with a slide into drugs and poverty.


You may remember that I’m a big fan of this three-woman group (Kristin Andreassen, Ruth Ungar and Aoife O’Donovan) ever since seeing them open for Chris Thile of Nickel Creek.

Here they perform an acapella version of Concrete Blonde’s “Joey”, and it’s fabulous.
