Remember this Burt Reynolds country song?

Well it’s the end of the week dear readers and we leave you with a story courtesy of Spin who marked the sad passing of Burt Reynolds (whose best film ever was Boogie Nights imho but horses for courses)  by remembering a country hit that he had in the 1980s. As they describe it: “After an early-career dalliance as an easy-listening country recording artist he returned to the music world in 1980 with “Let’s Do Something Cheap And Superficial,” for the soundtrack to 1980’s Smokey And The Bandit II… It was frivolous, it was fun, it was a hit to some degree, and it didn’t ask that you take it any more seriously than it took itself. You could do a whole lot worse on a Saturday night.” Amen to that. RIP Burt. Have a good weekend.
