All Summer Long with the Werewolves of London in Sweet Home Alabama

I’m ashamed to admit it, but yes, I do enjoy the new single by Kid Rock, All Summer Long. The first few times it came on mix 93.1, I thought it was Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon. Perhaps this is because it contains a sample from that song that runs throughout. Not only that, but the chorus is all about singing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama. AND, I swear that’s Bob Seger singing background vocals. Although maybe it’s just someone meant to sound like him. I couldn’t find a definitive answer on that when I googled the hell out of it. And I think my favorite line is about “trying different things and smoking funny things“. Oh, the good old days.

So, a song ABOUT another song (Sweet Home Alabama), with Bob Seger (possibly) singing background over a Werewolves of London sample? It doesn’t get much more songspeak than that, my friends.
