Song of the Day: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – “Stand By Your Man”

On this day in 1968, Tammy Wynette recorded her enduring country classic “Stand By Your Man,” which reached No. 1 in six countries. She probably didn’t imagine that one day it would go on to be covered by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. It’s a likable enough cover, one where they personalize the lyrics later on (“Sometimes it’s hard to be a Gimme/Givin’ all your love to just one band”). It appeared as part of the soundtrack to the movie “Boat Trip” and is one of a few covers of the song I find interesting, along with the memorable Blues Brothers version, the Lemmy/Wendy O. Williams version, and of course the Sesame Street version “Stand By Your Can“.
