COVERING THEIR TRACKS: "Nancy Drew" - Relient K

I got this thing for Nancy Drew
Her hair is blond, her eyes are blue

Time to rejoin the 21st century. I love when someone takes a modern pop tune and juxtaposes it with good old-fashioned movies in glorious black and white. What better choice to illustrate this guitar infused anthem to the queen of girl sleuths than a series of clips from the Bonita Granville movies? And don't forget Frankie Thomas as Ted (not Ned) Nickerson. (Guess the screenwriters didn't like that alliteration.)

One time these criminals with their guns
They thought it would be fun
To try to kill my
Nancy Drew
I jumped out and saved her life
Then asked her to be my wife
She said, "No, I'll never marry you!"

  1. I've never seen one of those movies, but I enjoyed the song and clips. Thanks again!
