You think I'm psycho, don't you mama?
My roommate Kyle showed me this song tonight and it's truly unbelievable. It was written by Leon Payne, a Texan song writer who wrote a couple hits for Hank Williams. After hearing about the Charles Whitman massacre that took place in Austin, Texas he wrote "Psycho" but denied anyone from recording it until after his passing. I couldn't find much information on the performer, Jack Kittel, outside of him being from Muskegon, Michigan, but that's irrelevant to how haunting his performance is.
Jack Kittel, "Psycho"
