F is for Foghat ~ AtoZChallenge

My choice was between Fleetwood Mac and Foghat. Fleetwood Mac achieved more critical success which is why I opted for Foghat as they might be considered a one (or few) hit wonder.  I had the album “Fool for the City” but this song (and not the title song) is the one I most enjoy.  More proof music does not need words because these lyrics are simply repeated over and over again.  Uh huh … we get it … slow ride … take it easy.  Full of euphemisms for so many things or one thing or several or …  

Another fun fact is this gem was part of the movie soundtrack for “Dazed and Confused” a movie that speaks to me.  Would have been us in 8th grade wanting to be around the high school boys.  Party in the woods … or wherever.  How am I still alive?!?!?

I am using the short version here but if you have the time, you may want to try out some live versions or the long version.  You won’t be disappointed.   Oh and I am dropping in the Wiki page which I might start doing from now on or at least until I get to Z.
