Top 10 comments posted underneath a YouTube video featuring a slideshow of magazine covers set to Mitch Miller’s “The Yellow Rose of Texas”

A brief moment’s celebration if you will: Claude Carpentieri has made like Roberto Duran and shouted out “No mas, no mas!”. As of around midnight yesterday, all reference to IchLugeBullets and it’s chirpy chappy editor have been wiped off “Hegley Road To Ladywood” or whateverthefuck it was called, and instead been replaced with our Claude agreeing with Yasmin Alibhai-Brown that the white working classes are the most disgusting savages on the planet. He’s a charmed that kid.

Anyway, how better to celebrate this throwing in of the towel than by heading over to popular video-sharing website “YouTube” and cutting a rug to the first ever number one to take place in the rock’n’roll era (ie, the first Billboard topper after “Rock Around The Clock”) “The Yellow Rose of Texas” by Mitch Miller?

Three points:

1) Mitch Miller is, somehow, still not dead, and far too old to consider to consider dropping in any dead pool teams this year

2) The song “The Yellow Rose of Texas”, far from being about flowers, was originally a minstrel show banger about how black dudes wanted to fuck mixed-race types because they looked a little bit more like white women than your comon-or-garden blacks

3) No YouTube video, in as small a number of comments, provides as much hilarity as the video to this pop classic does. ILB would like to take a hot minute if it could and share its ten favourite with you.

A #1 hit for Mitch Miller. Hey, Howard Cunningham, the Big Band era wasn’t quite over yet. I can just see Richie riding through Milwaukee with that song blasting from his convertible, or Fonzie punching the juke box at Arnold’s and that song playing. The folk music episode is fresh in my mind when I hear this. From Big Band to Rock ‘n’ Roll to Folk. “A commie plot,” said Fonzie.

I’ve heard the song has to with an Asian woman who inadvertently helped Texas during its early years, before it was a state. (I could be wrong)
