Nancy and Frank, Jr-Something Stupid in 1967

This is a song I truly enjoyed on the radio when I was around 7 years old. It wasn't until years later that I realized the creepy implications of a father and daughter singing this love song to each other. It really doesn't help to have her brother replacing her dad in this TV version from THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS SHOW in 1967. My more learned adult ear can also hear that Junior, like dad before him, is carrying his gorgeous sister's not-particularly-good-at-harmonizing voice. Nancy Sinatra has a unique vocal skill, best served by the production and collaboration with Lee Hazlewood. Still, nostalgia being what it is, I always have a soft spot for SOMETHING STUPID.
