Somebody’s Chelsea-Reba McEntire (Valory)

It’s sung very well, she does ’em no other way. I liked it a lot the first time I heard it. On repeated listens, not so much. Two things get me. First, the old guy on the plane was married for 60 yearsand most of that time to the only woman in America with that name. Chelsea is a modern, very recently in vogue name for little girls. Ok I could get past it. Listeners wouldn’t be so picky, probably wouldn’t notice the oddity. But what really bothers me is there is absolutely no reason for this to be four and a half minutes long. The final 90 seconds is a repetitive drag.
