Ode to Billie Joe
This song still has a way of capturing you as soon as you hear the opening chords. Released in the Summer of Love, "Ode to Billie Joe" began its trip up the charts the first week of August , rising 50 spots by the following week, and reaching the top position on the charts by the end of that month. So popular was this tune that the album it appeared on actually pushed The Beatles Sgt. Pepper from the number one spot on the Billboard album chart. What was thrown from the Tallahatchie Bridge and what on earth made young Billie Joe McAllister jump from the bridge to his death?
It seems to me that there is only one correct meaning, oh by the way.. Bobby Gentry hasn't died yet so who's to say? There is a missing baby somewhere in Chawtach ridge,but no one there will ever find her anyhow.. There was fire and bridge burnt to the ground And now the DNA samples cant be found.. There were flowers everywhere in tupelo, but no one ever seems to know just where they go

The single, released on July 10, , was a number-one hit in the US within three weeks of release and a big international seller. Billboard ranked the record as the No. It generated eight Grammy nominations, resulting in three wins for Gentry and one for arranger Jimmie Haskell. The song takes the form of a first-person narrative performed over sparse acoustic accompaniment, though with strings in the background. It tells of a rural Mississippi family's reaction to the news of the suicide of Billie Joe McAllister, a local boy to whom the daughter and narrator is connected. Hearsay around the "Tallahatchie Bridge" forms the narrative and musical hook.
