Glen Campbell In Studio

Glen Campbell’s step-out on the Grammys last weekend was deemed one of the Least Boring Moments of the show, where the retiring singer took the stage with swagger and lifted what could have been a sappy moment into a highlight. Earlier this month, Campbell re-released Meet Glen Campbell in a deluxe edition, featuring new bonus tracks, and to celebrate we’re giving away a Campbell-signed Fender Squier. To enter, you need be a fan of Stereogum on Facebook and comment with your favorite Glen Campbell song via Facebook Connect (do not use your ‘Gum user account on this post — we’ll have to be able to check if you are a fan of Stereogum on FB when the sweepstakes ends). There’s a shot of the guitar after the jump and the winner also gets the deluxe edition on CD. Sweepstakes ends 2/29 at 6 PM EST.

The reissued Meet Glen Campbell is out now on Capitol/EMI and available at iTunes.

  1. By The Time I Get To Phoenix

  2. My favorite song is Rhinestone Cowboy, but only because I routinely commute to work riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo.

  3. Galveston. Fo sho.

  4. All i want is you

  5. The Universal Solder, because I love ‘merica and hate the Ruskies.

  6. Rhinestone Cowboy! DUN DUN

  7. It is a difficult choice to make but I would have to say “Wichita Lineman” because of the sustained phrase “still on the Liiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeee”

  8. My favorite song is Rhinestone Cowboy.

  9. Witchita Lineman!

  10. Gentle on My Mind

  11. Wichita Lineman! Love it!

  12. Rhinestone Cowboy. Always reminds me of my grandfather.

  13. wichita lineman is my fav from my childhood

  14. There is just something about Rhinestone Cowboy that screams Glen Cambell and as an Arizona resident, it means so much more to the Cowboy state.

  15. Galveston.

  16. I got reintroduced to Glen Campbell through “”Meet Glen Campbell”, and being a huge Travis fan, LOVED his rendition of “Sing”.
    Yet, on that album, there is one more superior cover, and that is “All I Want Is You”.
    I know it’s not a Glen Campbell song, per se, but that is definitely my favorite.

  17. Rhinestone Cowboy!

  18. rhinestone cowboy

  19. went to the effort of getting Campbell’s autograph and it’s on a fucking Squire?

  20. it’s dorky, but i love “Bowling Green”.

  21. Love the “Sing” cover, but I’ll also go with “Rhinestone Cowboy”.

  22. I really dig the stuff he did with Bobbie Gentry, but it’s hard to go against “Rhinestone Cowboy”. The song is a classic among classics.

  23. Rhinestone Cowboy

  24. “Hey Little One”

  25. Wichita Lineman!

  40. My Favorite Glen Campbell song is definitely, Rhinestone Cowboy. I also loved his TV show, Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour! ; D

  41. “Gentle on My Mind”

  42. My favorite song is “Rhinestone Cowboy”

  43. May be a cliche answer, but “Wichita Lineman”.

  44. Even though he didn’t write it, I really like his cover of Tom Petty’s “Walls” from the “Meet Glen Campbell” album. He took a sort of minor Tom Petty single, that probably should have been bigger, and then added some “Rhinestone Cowboy” type production to it. Sounds like a mess on paper, but it turned out really good in my opinion.

  45. Rhinestone Cowboy!!!

  46. Wichita Linemen!

  47. Wichita Lineman

  48. “Southern Nights”.
