FlinterFile: Frankie Laine- Rawhide
In 1959, the television series Rawhide started. The series, running for seven years, saw the rise of Clint Eastwood. Of course, the TV-series couldn’t do without a tune. The song was sung by Frankie Laine, and written by two composers who had dealt with western music earlier: Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington. They made a sort of cattleride of it, including whips. The song was later popular again because the Blues Brothers used it. It was a number 6 hit in the UK. Enjoy
