Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man

How many music myths does this song bust? Let's count them, shall we?

1, There are things better than an electric guitar chord picked along with a ride symbol opening. Answer? No.

2, Country and rock cannot mix.

3, Tough guys cannot play tender songs.

4, Mellow rock and rocking rock cannot mix. (That guitar solo could put hair on Donald Trump's head)

5, This is not a "Simple Man" myth thing, but did you know every time someone plays "Escape" (The Pina Colada song) god kills a hummingbird?

6, Did you know that two "Bop a woo bop slap slap bip" equal four "Shambawamaba slew wang slips"?
