Buddy Knox - I Think I'm Gonna Kill Myself

Buddy Knox was born in the town of Happy, Texas, which tells you more than you ever needed to know. He burst onto the scene in 1957 singing well-laundered rock'n'roll pop music. A few years earlier and he'd have been a singing cowboy with a surgical smile. That makes I Think I'm Going To Kill Myself all the more baffling, for you can hear that smile as Knox sings about his suicide and funeral. It's one of the most bizarrely incongruous performances ever. Never mind another era, his cheerful banality sounds like something from another world.
