Rock. And. Roll. The real kind.

3 Keep on Smilin' - Wet Willie

Now here's a case study in lack of awareness. Been intimately familiar with this cut for more than forty years. It's practically a personal theme. And it never hit me 'til this moment how much it was influenced by Van the Man. 'Ppears I been slippin' for quite some time (sigh).

15 La Grange - ZZ Top UListen to Sample

Hot Tamale Baby is amazing also. I can't keep the smile from my face while playing these; they're so happy and uplifting! - Britgirl

You know something? Er. I mean ya know sumpin'? I LOVE this! Seriously, it's gotten totally under my skin, in my head, infected my ears (in a t'riffic way) and made it to the heart of my heart. I'm not sure how much more 'Merican can get belt but I'm havin' a whole lotta fun findin' out, Sir ;). - Britgirl

Zydeco really is the font of what became rock 'n' roll in the deep, Deep South. Was wondrin' if this sounds any different t'ya now than it did the first time, ya know, now that y'got a lot more 'Merican under.. uh... yer belt:).

"Ah-bah-bah, bah-yay... ah-bah-bah-bah-bah-bah-bah! " Pretty soon, you be runnin' 'roun' wit no shoes, chatterin' in that Cree-o.Yo' people tink you done caught the devil an' they put you 'way. 'Sawrite. We come see you on visitin' day:)).

40 The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band UListen to Sample
41 Ramblin' Man - The Allman Brothers Band UListen to Sample
42 Only God Knows When - Carolyn Wonderland

Once again, your enthusiasm is satisfying (hmm;). Meant it about the naivety of the lyrics, but that doesn't mean I don't agree with the sentiment. Woulda thrown a rope around the drummer, though. Constant rim-shots out of place and a huge distraction.

Jya give this a toss yet? Naively idealistic and hippie-ass foolish, given 6,000 years of history. But sho' enough fine music:).

Yes! I totally, er, tossed it. Ha! ;) Was trying to say how much I loved it couple of days ago but it wouldn't save my comment. I love her voice; love the song! :). - Britgirl
