Jimmy Keith - Calgary Cowboy/Kate & Edith (1980)

Now HERE'S a Calgary song we can get behind. "I'm tired of being a Calgary Cowboy," croons Jimmy Keith, "I wanna be a Disco King!" This novelty track somehow mixes country with a subtle disco beat, and doesn't outstay its welcome at two and a half minutes, leaving us with: "It's what? Dead? How about that punk rock, then? I have to put a safety pin WHERE?" The B side is an overly-elaborate set up for the pun, "You can't have your Kate & Edith too." Still, if we were to ever DJ a Stampede party, we'd definitely be using the A side in our set at some point.
