Song of the day: Albert Hammond- The Free Electric Band


In 1973 Albert Hammond released one of his biggest hits. The song represents what most of the youth did in the early seventies: break free of their parents, since they wanted some sort of adventure. It expresses the feeling of getting out of the system, giving everything up for just having fun and playing music, doing what you like best. The narrator even gives up his girlfriend, as she is part of the system, too. It was a number 48 hit in the US and number 19 in the UK. Enjoy
