Song of the day: Lynyrd Skynyrd- Sweet Home Alabama
A song from 1974, and it was a hit single: it would be on number 8 in the US, and even on number 6 in Canada. The band had recorded several songs between 1970 and 1972 in Alabama, and they wrote down their impressions. That impressions would be in their song, but that’s not all: the song includes an attack on Neil Young, who was very critical about southern USA. Lynyrd Skynyrd replied to that with their positive impressions, and the nice thing is that Neil Young has played the song once, as a tribute when three members died in a plane crash. The beginning comment, turn it up, was not ment to be there, but it was a comment to the producer. It sounded good and they left it in. Enjoy
