Feel Good Friday

San Fransico Mabel Joy
By Mickey Newbury

“I consider “San Francisco Mabel Joy” to be the most successful song I have written, for several reasons. First, it was a five minute song written in a two minute world. I was told it would never be cut by any artist. Second, I was told you could not use the term ‘redneck’ in a song and get it recorded. It has sold in excess of 55 million records. It broke the rules and it broke the walls down. It became the foundation for a new form of expression in country music. It was chosen in the millennial year as one of the top 100 folk songs of the past century.”
