Nancy Sinatra, Frank Sinatra’s daughter was born on this day. One of her best know hits is a Lee Hazlewood written tune, ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’.’ It was named #114 on Pitchfork’s The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s as chosen by Pitchfork staff.
“The descending bassline that opens the song feels like a playground taunt, and so does everything else: Sinatra’s blithe and flirty delivery, the skeletal tambourines, even the glorious, stomping horn riff that bursts into the song in its final 20 seconds. “Boots” is maybe the finest b***hy kiss-off in pop history.
