As you all know, I tend to be a sucker for most of the fan-written and performed songs that pop up on YouTube. Unless they are just supremely awful, I let my appreciation for the passion the fans are expressing override whatever cheesiness or inherent lack of quality may be present.
And so it is with this mindset that I magnanimously extend an olive branch to Kentucky fan ThePoetCDub for the following acoustic tune he posted yesterday on YouTube. He takes Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue” and puts a UK hoops spin on it.
“Courtesy of the Big White and Blue”
No, the song is nothing special (like the video posted below), but I do appreciate a cleverly-done spoof as one who likes to dabble in writing such songs myself.
I found the following lyrics to be especially clever:
I’ve been through Eddie and Rick, and Tubby too,
And even Billy G, but hell I still bled blue.
We’ve got Miller and Lamb, raining down 3s.
