How pathetic am I? The only ones I got right were the 3 Stooges and the Tanya Tucker questions. No one in the whole world knows this, but "Delta Dawn" was my "shower" song for a long time. I knew all the words and it lasted about long enough to wash my hair.

Thanks LT! I didn't care for her singing quite as much when she got older (I guess because I didn't like the way her life was headed at the time), but she was at her best between ages 13 and about 16. I loved a lot of her songs.
