When You Slow Dolly Parton's "Joelene" Down To 33, It Sounds Even Better

Slow It Down To 33

Slow It Down To 33

Usually, when you slow a song down for no apparent reason, it sucks balls. Having said that, who slows songs down or no reason?! Well, somebody slowed this song down and, to be honest, we're actually quite glad that they did...

Begging Joelene

Begging Joelene

In her 1973 hit "Joelene", Dolly Parton sings a plea for another woman (yeah, Joelene) to please stay away from her husband. She sings of how Joelene could have any man she wants and that she only has him to make her happy, so she'd really like to keep him.

It really is quite a touching song in a way, if not a little pathetic (it had to be said).



Signature Song

The track became Parton's second song to hit number one on the country charts and crossed over in the mainstream, becoming something of a signature track for the country superstar. She went on to pose for Playboy in 1978 and is perhaps just as famous for her tits as her unique voice - kind of like Pamela Anderson except with actual talent.

All of that aside, for some reason, somebody decided to slow a vinyl of the track down to 33bpm, and was astounded with what they found.

First though, it's probably a good idea to reacquaint yourself with the original for a minute.
