Favorite songs from the post-crash era
February 25, 2010 1:52:18 PM UTC Post #1

Johnny fronts a good rock band, and they’ve had their moments, but Ronnie had fronted an amazing rock band. I suppose it’s hard to beat the classics, even if you’re following in their direct footsteps.

Now, what are those "moments", in my opinion?
I tend to like making 80-minute playlists [even if I don't end up actually burning them to CD]; here's what I came up with for original songs by the current incarnations of Skynyrd:

Southern Women, Backstreet Crawler, Workin', Preacher Man, Rough Around The Edges, Floyd, God & Guns, Little Thing Called You, Skynyrd Nation, Southern Ways, Still Unbroken, The Last Rebel, Outta Hell in My Dodge, We Ain't Much Different, Red White & Blue, Crawl, Jake

Thanks for the tip, Paul - Skynyrd is one of the most underrated classic rock bands. We in Skynyrd Nation know better.

What rock lost in 10/77 was no less than what it lost in 2/59.

I think Berneice and Talked Myself Right Into It are very good Skynyrd songs.

@Skynyrd Nation UK1:
"There's only ONE LYNYRD SKYNYRD!! Always has been and always will be!!!!"
You mean that there's only the Ronnie incarnation, or that it's still essentially the same band still essentially flying the same flag?

@SpawnOfSkynyrd:
Seems we agree on a lot of them.

Didn't have 1, 14 or 16 yet.
With regards to 14 and 18, I put songs from the initial era on a separate playlist although yes, I do very much like the reworking of Bullets.

I admit I don't care quite so much for some of the overtly political or highly sentimental ones, though they're still great songs

I can. The Van Zant bro's made a few great ones...one including the beautiful song "Heart of an Angel" that Donnie wrote about his daughter. It's simply amazing.
