The American conservative magazine published a cover article on Thursday titled “Beauty and Essex,” a reference to the English country where the song first appeared.
The article says “Beautiful girls” was written by “the lovely Kate B. Smith” in 1983 and originally performed by the band the Flaming Lips.
It also quotes “a number of singers, singers, songwriters, and musicians who wrote beautiful songs in the early 1980s and early 1990s, including the fabulous Kate Smith, whose song ‘Beautiful Girls’ was used as the title for a 1992 song by the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos band, ‘Don’t Stop.”
The article goes on to say that the song was written to describe the song “Beautys of Essex.”
In the article, Smith says that the Flami’ Hotcheetos’ song “don’t stop” was based on her song “Don’t Quit” and it was a way to honor her.
In addition, the article quotes a song lyric by Smith that says, “Don´t stop crying in a beautiful girl’s face.”
The song is one of many that Smith has written over the years.
The singer also sings a number of country-influenced songs including “You’ve Got to Go to Your Grandma,” “We Should Be Dancing Together,” and “Go to the Prom.”
