Long before Lana Del Rey's obsession with Lee Hazelwood began, songwriters Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard recorded a demo for a new song titled "I Fall to Pieces" at Pamper Music in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Despite the songwriters' faith in the piece, numerous artists turned it down. Only when Patsy Cline overheard another country singer, Roy Drusky, complain that the song lacked enough masculinity to record it did she offer to record it instead. While Drusky's rendition would have been a potentially progressive and sensitive side to a typically conservative genre, Cline gives a heartbreaking delivery of the song. A classic in the abundant genre of melancholy love songs, "I Fall to Pieces" is the perfect song for any budding country singer to learn.
