Music Matchin’ with Mel

There’s some song shenanigans going on, friends! So yesterday Mel shared a groovy mix of “Dancin’ in the Moonlight” (Go listen to it, we’re talking Key West-Duval Street-chilling at the bar at Sloppy Joe’s smooth.) and I went into full “Me” mode and was all, “I know another song about the same thing with the same name, LOL!”, and shared it for a bit of fun. Mel enjoyed the song and got into the spirit of the whole “music duel” thing and came back at me with “Call Me the Breeze” set to Smokey and the Bandit. Talk about, “Awww yeah, son!”. Now while I don’t know of any song with the same name, so Melly wins there, I do know a Southern Rock song with the same kick-ass energy about being on the road, plus the lead man, Rickey Medlocke, would go on to perform with Lynyrd Skynyrd before eventually reviving Blackfoot back in 2015.

I got the road fever!

Oh hit it
Well every time I’m down and out
And I don’t know what to do
I drop my load and I hit the road
And play me a job or two
Yes I do

What they’re sayin’ keeps hitting me
Right square smack in the face
They say that my songs are no good, baby
Why don’t you join the human race
You know I’ve had just all I can take
And I don’t know what to do
Guess I’ll have to hit the stage
Play me a song or two

You know I’ve had all I can take
Sitting here at home
I guess I’ll have to hit the road
You know I love to roam
(Road fever,) oh don’t you know I got
(Road fever) Oooooooo

Go Mr. Guitar

You know this life has taken its toll
And I don’t know where to go
And I love this life of a rock and roll
But there’s one thing that I know
And every time I’m a down and out
And I don’t know what to do
I drop my load and I hit the road
And play me a song or two
Yes I do

You know I’ve had all I can take
Sitting here at home
I guess I’ll have to hit the road
You know I love to roam
(Road fever,) oh don’t you know I got
(Road fever) Ohhhhhhhh
