Song of the Day Nov 30

November 30, 2023

Today our song is: These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

The song was written by Lee Hazlewood; it was inspired by a line spoken by Frank Sinatra in the comedy-western film 4 for Texas (1963): "They tell me them boots ain't built for walkin'."

Nancy Sinatra's version of the song was released as a single in December 1965, as the second song to be taken from her debut album, Boots (1966), and was a follow-up to the minor hit "So Long, Babe". The song became an instant success and, in late February 1966, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a move it replicated in similar charts across the world.

Billboard described the song as "fine folk-rock material" and praised Sinatra's vocal performance and "the Billy Strange driving dance beat." Cash Box described it as a "funky, slow-shufflin' folk-rocker about a gal who serves notice on her boyfriend that she can't be pushed around."


Here's a playlist of November 2023 Song of the Day





  1. There's an idea: a monthly playlist! Think I'll start that....

    Nancy Sinatra was more than her father's daughter: she was a fine singer and entertainer in her own right. Also very attractive, and she managed to use that without appearing cheap.

  2. I lovevthis song by Nancy who was sensual cool. I never saw this video of her I only saw the one where she is wearing white go go boots. I love that you put your months' here so we can listen again. Have a great day. I can't believe December is tomorrow

  3. Thanks for the playlist! I can catch up on ones I missed. I do love oldies. I think I loved them before they were oldies ;-)
