Song of the day: Lynyrd Skynyrd- Sweet Home Alabama

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

Kid Rock All Summer Long

Today a number one hit in a lot of countries, including the UK, from 2008. The song is a mash-up, which was suggested by Mike E. Clark. Like most cases, the mash-up consists of two songs: Werewolves of London and Sweet Home Alabama. The music in All Summer Long is identical to Werewolves of London, the text resembles Sweet Home Alabama a lot, but is not quite identical. Together they make a great summer hit. Enjoy
