Muziek: Kid Rock

KLASSIEKER: KID ROCK

Gefeliciteerd Rock ‘n Roll Jesus. De (ex-)man van Pamela Anderson heeft een zomerhit uitgebracht exact tien jaar geleden. Het klinkt ouder hè? Zijn hit All Summer Long is een verhaal over een jonge man die met zijn eerste liefde op zomerkamp is in 1989, waarbij ze verliefd worden in het nummer “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Wist je dat er destijds in Nederland een parodie op dit nummer is gemaakt? KidB featuring Martin van der Starre genaamd Una Paloma Blanca Heel de Zomer Lang werd in Nederland nog een hitje. Zoals de titel al doet vermoeden gaat het nummer ook hier over een verliefd stel, maar dan in verband met het nummer “Paloma Blanca” van de George Baker Selection in plaats van “Sweet Home Alabama”. Fijne zomer!

It was 1989, my thoughts were short
My hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was 17 and she was far from in-between
It was summer-time in Northern Michigan

Splashing through the sand-bar
Talking by the camp fire
It’s the simple things in life
Like when and where
We didn’t have no internet
But, man, I never will forget
The way the moon light shined upon her hair

And, we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favourite song
Sipping whisky out the bottle
Not thinking ‘bout tomorrow
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long

Catching walleye from the dock
Watching the waves roll off the rocks
She’ll forever hold a spot inside my soul
We blister in the sun
We couldn’t wait for night to come
To hit that saving place of rock and roll

While, we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favourite song
Sipping whisky out the bottle
Not thinking ‘bout tomorrow
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long

Now nothing seems as strange
As when the leaves begin to change
Or how we thought those days would never end
Sometimes I hear that song and I start to sing along
And think, man, I’d love to see that girl again

And, we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favourite song
Sipping whisky out the bottle
Not thinking ‘bout tomorrow
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long

We were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favourite song
Sipping whisky out the bottle
Not thinking ‘bout tomorrow
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’ all summer long

All summer long
Singing ‘Sweet home Alabama’, yeah
Singing all summer long
