“SINK THE BISMARCK” Johnny Horton, Greatest Hits (1990)
I fell in love with music because of this song. It was the first single I bought. I was around 11 years old, which was about a year before I started playing guitar.
It’s a song about the Bismarck, a German battleship that sunk during World War II. It’s a very thematic, rousing song. I think I mowed two lawns or something to make enough money to buy it.
