Musical Interlude: These Boots Are Made For Walkin' (1966)

If someone had thought of MTV in 1966, this would've been in extra heavy rotation.

Nancy Sinatra's signature hit was "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'", released in February 1966. More than 45 years later, it still holds up, compared to Jessica Simpson's lame remake made for the "Dukes of Hazzard" soundtrack a few years ago.

Now, the video began popping up on MTV & VH1 in the 80's, and I'd not be surprised if someone found a way to use this on a workout video soundtrack.......

Enough said.

I've always loved this tune and I still do Nancy's little walk when I'm listening to it at home! Even the clip is very much ahead of its time, as it fit right in on MTV when it popped up there.

I'm willing to bet that there were plenty of teenage boys back then who were wishing they'd be that close to Nancy, not realizing that this was something that was made before they were born!
