3514. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama
From: Second Helping; Year: 1974; Genre: Southern Rock
Over the last few days I've been listening to actual radio in the car; mostly out of laziness of not wanted to mess with the Bluetooth audio. It's amazing in about the last decade or so of not listening to it to hear it now; half of the songs are chopped up and censored. It's maddening to say the least; I can understand it in some cases, but this is taking political correctness to absurdity and making it not worth listening to. Besides that fact that none of the disc jockeys are live anymore and are lucky to hear one living in the city the station broadcasts from. I understand that they're a private business and thus have every right to conduct business as they see fit, but also I have a right to turn them off. I think I'll go back to my non-broadcast music. Okay, off my soapbox now.
Anyway, this was one of the songs that got some censorship done to it; and while it's not my favourite from the band I still turn it up every time it comes on.
