A random comment thread on a recent Facebook status of mine brought up the topic of murder ballads. Popular music has a long and storied tradition of songs about murder, which raises the question: What is the best murder song of all time? Here are a few for your consideration:
Frankie & Johnny
Banks of the Ohio
I Hung My Head
Maxwell’s Silver Hammer
Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
There are plenty more… what’s your favorite?
