Turn it up: Loretta Lynn + Portland

Song: “Portland, Oregon”

Artist: Loretta Lynn & Jack White

Why I picked it: The strange pairing of Lynn and White is pretty much the exact funkiness of my morning today. I wandered around the grocery store for no less than 20 minutes this morning at 6 a.m. until I picked out some freezer waffles and chicken sausage. It is a fuzzy funky morning.

Best part of this song: Portland really is love. And gin. And I’m not just saying that because my love lives here. And I like gin. It’s a slow-moving, fuzzy kind of city that is pretty well represented in the slow-moving fuzziness of Loretta’s crooning.

Favorite lyric:  Well Portland Oregon and sloe gin fizz / If that ain’t love then tell me what is
