  1. The original recording of Dolly Parton’s Jolene slowed down sounds super
    duper awesome. Also, the person who posted this video on YouTube called it
    Slow Ass Jolene. Which is awesome, too.

  2. Whoa.

    Apparently this is just the original recording slowed down by 25%. I find
    it astounding…

  3. Dolly Parton’s Joline slowed down 25% is a great improvement – so good that
    is is hard to believe it is unedited.

    Thanks +Dangerous Minds

    *you get a terrific baritone*

    The original, for reference:
    Dolly Parton – Jolene (High Quality) sound

  5. *Slowlene*

    Holy shit, but this is awesome! Dolly Parton’s original recording of
    *Jolene* (my favorite of her songs, in case you were curious) slowed down
    by 17%.

  6. There seems to be some debate about just how much the original was slowed
    (17%? 25%?) but the first questions that popped into my head were (in no
    particular order):

    * Is this the first time this has been done?
    * Has Dolly Parton heard it and what did she think about it?
    * What prompted the person who first did this?
    * Can you find this version on the juke box of every gay club on the
    planet?

  7. *Dolly Parton – Jolene – slowed by 17%*

    Awesome! I love the original anyway so that obviously helps me love this
    one but wow this is great.

    This was just shared by Stephen Fry on Twitter, who we’d all love to join
    Google+ but he has said he’s happy staying solely on Twitter. I’ve seen a
    message from him to that effect but I don’t know for sure if it was genuine.

    Anyway, enjoy…..

  8. *Bumping into Dolly Parton…Slowly*
    *Slow Ass Jolene* is a slow-assed version of Dolly Parton’s *Jolene,*featuring the baby-high soprano voice s-l-o-w-e-d down to a reasonable alto
    — sounding like a soulful male ballader — in Dolly Parton drag.

  9. A friend recommended that I give this a listen this morning. And I’ve had
    this song stuck in my head since then…both versions. This version puts a
    completely different perspective on the song and there’s a gay country boy
    „feel“ to it and it’s so sad. I love it!

  11. With each new wave of people who listen to this, the exact same flame wars,
    misunderstandings, and anti-gay/transphobic comments start all over. Like
    the lotus, the collective youtube idiocy blossoms anew.

  13. This wave was brought by the Tegan & Sara episode of The Nerdist podcast,
    where this song was played at the very end. Kinda surprising. Who would
    listen to the end of their interview, then go here… that’s called being
    committed.

  15. I can’t listen to the original after hearing this just because it doesn’t
    have the same dark, mournful tone to it. Slow suits it so much better.

  17. I found this when I was watching a dog that sings along to an accordian.
    Don’t know how this popped up with that search, but hey, it was worth the
    click! Great song no matter how you hear it.

  19. *Slow Ass Jolene – Original Dolly Parton Track Slowed Down to 33rpm*

    Things of beauty reconceived and reperceived through a different lens.

    How Dope is this? This is absolutely the original track, just slowed down.
    Few female vox could sound so sexy pitched down this way. Love it.

  20. What happens when you take the already great Dolly Parton and slower down
    her song Jolene? All types of awesome.

  21. Bahahahah! That just made my day xD People don’t have lives. That’s the
    main problem. And their mommies didn’t give them enough attention and so
    they must seek it here by posting crap. And because I wanna feel I belong:
    FUCKASSMOTHAFUCKAAAAAAAA

  22. Chill to the bones… woha… The original is already pretty damn
    impressive, but that’s taking it to a new level..

  23. wow. I replicated this because I just couldn’t believe this was real.
    Incredible. The accuracy of Dolly’s singing uncovered here.

  24. I didn’t believe this was the original slowed down until I tried it out and
    was able to reproduce it

  25. The Blacklist brought me here. After watching last episode i said to myself
    i have to have this song! EPIC song

  26. that was a great song to begin with, this version just melts your socks, i
    was on the net trying to track it thirty seconds before Blacklist ended

  27. Exactly, I was looking for this version of the song after The Blacklist I
    feel the slowed downed version is so much meaningful

  28. I really miss 45s. Country songs are often transformed in amazing ways
    when slowed down to 33 1/3. I remember doing this in college and freaking
    out my friends.

  29. I knew they would use some version of this as soon as they introduced her
    character and jumped for joy as soon as I heard the first notes, knowing it
    was this one.

  30. Hey, +goodlittlebuddy. Can you please upload the 320kb for this, free or on
    iTunes. I would gladly pay for it. +The Blacklist really does have a great
    choice in music!

  31. is this really Dolly Parton slowed down 25%. This is a great version if it
    is. We can change all sorts of songs this way.

  32. Love The Blacklist, Love this version of the song too! Tho I’ve never
    actually heard the entire original.

  33. I, too, found my way here after the Blacklist. When this version of Jolene
    began to play it was so captivating I could barely breathe. Kudos for
    everything the producers, writers, editors, and actors have achieved. But
    this was the cherry on the cake. So to speak….

  34. This is just so much better than the original… oh wait… this *is* the
    original, just made so much better!
    I can foresee a whole slew of „slow-ass“ song redo’s coming soon. 🙂
    Can’t. Stop. Listening.

  35. Hey love the mix. Yes Blacklist used your song at the end of there show
    last week. That is why so many people have gone on to listen to it. I do
    not know the copyright law on this but if you might have had to get
    permission from Dolly Parton to make your own cover to own any of the
    rights. I am a songwriter. Maybe you can try to contact her or her
    publishing company and see if you can work out a deal to legally record
    this a single and get some royalty money for your arrangement best of
    .good luck Hadasssah

  36. Listened also to the 1981 alternately played 33 & 1/3 and 45 version called
    Jolene Both Ways. Can’t decide which I like better.

  37. A quien se le ocurrió cambiar las rpm? Además de sonar increíble y
    original, me parece que el ritmo y la voz de Dolly Parton grave, van más
    con el significado de la canción.

  38. I listened to this song about a thousand times when I was a kid so when I
    heard it on The Blacklist, I immediately knew it was just Dolly’s voice
    slowed down. Cool!

  39. What an amazing version of this song! Thanks for sharing it. BTW, the first
    time I heard this song was on the radio (89.3 The Current in Minnesota)
    last year.

  40. The episode was ment to stick to the song, i mean jolene plz don’t take my
    men is exactly what liz could have said in this episode :p

  41. Sooo in LOVE with this song!! If it really is Dollys voice yet slowed
    down…AMAZING!! Yes, Blacklist brought me here…was already in love with
    it when seeing miley perform the song in backyard sessions! Wonderful!!

  42. 这首 #SlowAssJolene 的翻唱真的好棒!比原唱多了爱尔兰民谣的调调,深深的无力感。让人着迷啊着迷。
    单曲循环了。

  43. Some thing need to be left alone, like this version lol. Some tosser has
    done a ‚pitch corrected‘ slow ass Jolene, it sucks. This one FTW

  44. I picture the image of Walter White on the desert, with the Heisenberg hat
    walking to the horizon. RV burning, while the Ozymandias poem’s been read
    by him. Am I the only crazy?

  45. Slowed down by 25% this really does sound bizarrely good! Dolly Parton’s
    Jolene……..seriously!

  46. I have heard practically every version of this song and 99% of people I
    meet also sing their own little version to me. Slow ass jolene is by far
    the best…well done to who ever came up with this! I now love the song
    again after becoming a little tired of it

  47. It’s actually really hard to find songs that sound good slowed down. Tried
    it with The Doors, but Jim’s voice is already quite deep and scratchy so it
    just sounded horrible. Tried it with Johnny Cash too, but it sounded
    monstrous. I reckon country is the best genre to use.

  48. The Blacklist has become a gateway to terrific things. Great tracks,
    surreal words and even more enthralling plots. 🙂
