5 comments on “Once There Was a Hushpuppy

  1. I zipped over to You Tube and listened David. It does sound very powerful indeed. I haven’t seen the film yet, but I can well imagine that it works well, after an emotional viewing experience.
    A very different ‘end credits’ song that always stays in my mind, is the Psychedelic Furs singing the title track to ‘Pretty in Pink’. When I first saw that film, I thought playing this over the credits was a masterstroke.
    As a young man, I remember a fashion of wearing the suede ‘Hushpuppy shoes’, with different coloured laces on each foot. Looking back, I think, ‘what was that about?’.
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

    • “Pretty in Pink” is a good example, and there are many others. I just haven’t stumbled on many good ones of late. I don’t recall ever wearing Hush Puppies, but I’ve recently seen shoes with different colored laces. Fads come and go, and then ignorance of the past, or else nostalgia, brings them back.


  2. A few of my favorite end credits: Yellow Submarine, Head (the Beatles and the Monkees, respectively), Night of the Living Dead, Skidoo (oddly enough, all from the 1960s. Perhaps it was the era of the cool end sequence.)
