Robert Mitchum – From a logical point of view

Its so hard to know what to say about this song.  What is the most offensive, un-PC thing about it?  The vocal style?  The lyrics?

But however offensive the lyrics are, there is some real wisdom in there too.  Maybe it is not un-PC at all, maybe it is a way-before-its-time critique on the way looks have become everything in the modern world.

Whichever way you look at it Robert Mitchum’s career as a calypsosoloist should never have been allowed to be forgotten.
