!! OMG, 40 musical reasons why Dolly Parton is a groundbreaking genius, in chronological order !!

dolly-wink

To celebrate the third leg of Dolly Parton‘s Pure & Simple tour (beginning this Friday in Toronto), we asked our friend Brad, the biggest Dolly fan we know, to create a chronological list of his favourite Dolly songs.

You might be surprised that most of Dolly’s songs (particularly the early ones) are not about romantic heartbreak, but uplifting things like unplanned pregnancy, child abuse, murder, and insanity — from a feminist perspective.

Heads up: We didn’t even try to include a song from Trio or Trio II, the glorious collaboration albums from Dolly, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt. You should really listen to those in their entirety.

Now, on to the list! Song titles in bold are the ones Brad predicts Dolly is most likely to play on the Pure & Simple tour.
​​
01. Dumb Blonde (1967) was the first single from Dolly’s first album Hello, I’m Dolly. She ain’t no dumb blonde though!

02. Just Because I’m A Woman (1968) was Dolly’s first single on RCA. She wrote it in response to her husband’s disappointment that she wasn’t a virgin when they were married in 1966 (50 years ago!). Some radio stations refused to play it because it was considered controversial at the time.

03. In The Good Old Days When Times Were Bad (1969) is about Dolly’s impoverished childhood and her mixed emotions about those times. It’s full of imagery and sincerity. Classic Dolly.
