Song of the Week: Nevada Ooh Na NaPosted by admin on October 29, 2020 Blog | Parody Songs | Spence's Song of the Week | Videos | No comments
In celebration of Nevada Day, it’s an encore presentation of “Nevada Ooh Na Na.” I believe I did this as a Song of the Week back in November of 2017. For reasons, known and unknown, I re-sung and created a new video for this 2020 version.
And, yes, we celebrate the day our state, Nevada, officially became part of the United States. Halloween, 1864, although I’m guessing not a lot of trick or treating going on with the Civil War and all. State businesses shut down and kids get out of school on the Friday of October closest to the 31st.
The original video and song debuted back in November of 2017, parodying Camila Cabello’s hit song, “Havana.” On various social media platforms, it garnered more than 600,000 views.
While I received a ton of love for the song, I also got a bunch of hate on social media. It was expected and probably deserved. The song basically says that without Las Vegas, Nevada doesn’t matter. People in Elko and Ely, Fernley, Sparks and Reno didn’t take too kindly to that notion.
Understand, the line “Winnemucca, we don’t give a f*** about you,” can and did leave a bad taste in some people’s mouths. But, come on, that’s funny and it rhymes.
For Nevada Day, Friday, October 30, 2020, my Song of the Week, “Nevada Ooh Na Na.”
