Tonight is the premiere event of the two-part miniseries Bonnie & Clyde starring Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch simulcast on three different networks (History, A&E, and Lifetime). In honor of the story of America’s most notorious outlaw couple being retold on the small screen, I thought I might gather together some of the best musical tributes to Bonnie & Clyde from over the nearly eight decades since they went on their headline-grabbing crime spree that lasted for years before both were shot and killed in an ambush in Bienville Parish, Louisiana on May 23, 1934.
