Some Of My Favorite Patsy Cline Songs On Her Birth Anniversary [VIDEO]

There will never be another Patsy Cline…through the years, that sentence has gone from cliche to truism.

I’ve been working in radio for over 30 years, and whenever I play a song by Patsy Cline, the world just stops to listen to this beautiful voice.  The words delicate and power do not go together, but somehow Patsy combine those two elements to her style…and made it work.

Patsy was born on this day in 1932.  Let’s take a look at some of her videos from the ’50′s and ’60′s. 

It’s hard to believe that a song that was voted as one of the best country songs of all time never made it to the top of the charts.  ‘Crazy’ written by Willie Nelson got as high as number 2, but a 19-week run a number one by Leroy Van Dyke’s ‘Walk on By’ kept Patsy from topping the charts.

 

This was Patsy’s first number one song back in 1961.  It was written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard…Howard and Cline shared the same birthday. This performance happened just 10 days before the plane crash that took her life.

Here’s Patsy getting her first national exposure on the Arthur Godfrey ‘Talent Scouts’ show.  Cline was 24 at the time.

 

‘She’s Got You’ was Cline’s biggest hit as far as chart success goes…this song was on top of the charts for 5 weeks in in the early Spring of 1962.
