Lynyrd Skynyrd: Sweet Home Alabama

Warren Zevon (along with LeRoy Marinell &Waddy Wachtel) had his only top 40 hit with Werewolves Of London. The theme & title were inspired by the 1935 Stanley Bergerman film “Werewolf of London”, and the music, it seems, inspired by Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama“.

Sure, it’s a common enough progression. But to be written four or so years after such a chart buster as “Sweet Home Alabama” is sorta ballsy.
