The Top Ten
My very favourite CCR song. Love that voice! - Britgirl
Rock. And. Roll. The real kind.
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).
Going with this today. - Ned964
This is, no doubt, a very good song. However, it's association with "Roadhouse" should automatically disqualify it. Just kidding girl. - Ned964
Featured on Road House soundtrack. Such an upbeat, uplifting, feel-good song. - Britgirl
Classic. Built on earlier models: start slow while emphasizing the lyrical content, ramp up the tempo and finally let the lead (s) tell the rest of the story. Always liked this one - Ned964
I knew this one would creep in. Great song; although visions of Devil's Rejects are hard to diminish. - Britgirl
Seems nearly everyone on the planet except yours truly loves this endless ode to audio waterboarding.
Can't believe I forgot this. I love it. - Britgirl
This is not Southern Rock. This is a Canadian hippie trashing the South.
Just a simple song really. True enough, it is not Southern Rock, but after Skynyrd's reply, the band and Young became great friends. Young freely admitted that "Sweet Home Alabama" was a much better song, which it is in every way, still without this song, Sweet Home wouldn't exist. - Ned964
Love it! It's very fair to say that I'm wearing a grin from ear to hear :) Also really like this (but not quite as much) by Little Feat. - Britgirl
Good one. It's been a spell since I've heard this. - Ned964
"Bluer skies and better days." Nice. Very nice.
Glad to hear it...and the song :). - Britgirl
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 under...uh...my 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:)).
Perfectly fits the Outlaw image. My favorite ABB tune. I haven't been able to add any songs here since finding this list. Pity. - Ned964
Ohh...this is good! - Britgirl
...And so is this! - Britgirl
*Loudly* The Stones are far superior! *Whispers* Strictly 'tween us, I much prefer this by Johnny. Shhh... :). - Britgirl
Props to Mick and the boys, but this is how we do it over here:).
Oh this is good. Real good :). - Britgirl
The White Lightnin' made it to seventy. Woulda never thunk it. R.I.P.
Well shut mah mouf. Didn't think nobody 'membered this one.
I'll have to go through the list again. Seems odd this would be this low. Maybe it's just me? - Ned964
I totally agree, as that happens to me as well, I lose track. Touche, Mon Ami. I actually hadn't expected this song to have been submitted by you. I'm glad it was. - Ned964
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
I really love this. - Britgirl
Written by Rick Derringer, who played with Johnny Winter. He later would cover his own song, which was a Top 40 hit on rock starions.. - Ned964
Lost count of how many times I've played this. Love it so much. - Britgirl
