A Journey of Song and Dance. Round 1 Coming ALIVE

It's really great to be on another journey with friends old and new. In one sense, these journeys themselves make me "come alive". They encourage me to listen to songs that I might not otherwise play and get me to think about what a powerful influence music has on our lives. For me, one of my fondest memories of coming alive, is of my first holiday as a "grown up".

Newly finished with school, myself and a group of friends took to the open road on a camping tour of Devon and Cornwall. Driving along country roads in an open topped car, rock music on the cassette player (Yes, I am that old!), and filled with the excitement of my first real taste of freedom, I felt I was truly alive. Something about this song always reminds me of that intoxicating feeling of freedom to achieve anything. A time when I was truly alive.

As a footnote.
I wouldn't have been any good as a biker! I can't ride a motorcycle over 50cc's as I'm totally incapable of letting myself lean in to bends. A friend tried to teach me once and I nearly got us both killed. Still, I inescapably was, "Born to be Wild(e)" Ho Ho....

Love Michael.

Very good to hear you take on this classic from 69, Michael. Certainly moved the ground when played and its message very clear (not what I believe). An excellent lively performance on this making the room move around as we listened.
Well done my friend

Hi Micheal,
Love the band!!This song was perfect for Easy Rider,
An ultimate kick ass song-hell yeah. To me this song is about going out, having an adventure and a real good time, and living life to it's fullest.
Great job my friend!

Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something. PLATO

Oh Michael, I can't ride a bike, either...lol one WITHOUT a motor. I always dreamed of a Vespa through Italy, though...oh yeah, I'm bada$$. LOL ....a WILD CHILD.

This certainly awakens the senses...and you did an awesome sing here....a caravan through Cornwall would suit me well now...and would bring about those FREE and ALIVE feelings. Great Start for the Journey, Loved it!!

I am loving this from you Michael.
Isn't being "wild" fun once in awhile?
Even now at my age this song puts that desire to be wild in me.
Great job my friend and teammate.
Hugs, Joy

PRAYERS FOR A DEAR SS FRIEND PLEASE!

I rode on my niece's motorbike once and must say I didn't like it - too much like living on the edge I guess. But I dig getting wild with music, and you rocked this.
