"Free Bird" from Lynyrd Skynyrd
from the album (pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd) .
Yes,yes OK. This must rate as one of the most requested songs at my old college,many many years ago.
Get that crap off and play Freebird !
That is Lynard Skynrd - Freebird you understand!
It was so emotionally powerful that a number of 'coming togethers',happened because of this track.
You understand it was not between me and the lads but between them and the girls.
Hair pulling,drink throwing and shouting usually resulted when I put it on and hid round the corner. This was an agricultural college and some of girls were real beefcakes who were no too bothered if the DJ lived to see another day dawn or not.
The girls would corner me and demand Wako Jacko or Boggie nights or the most recent handbag song,while the lads made air guitar performances with a pint in one hand which usually meant beer on the dance floor and bodies falling over. I remember it well.
Well I remember the escape routine anyway.
And its not an easy guitar tab but what the heck.
Lots of vids on You tube ect.
