Chuck come on now…You should respect the 70’s. [sub] Damn I thought I was trying to get rid of should from my vocabulary[/sub].

Anyway! back to freebird. It is certainly not terrible and it has made quite a few concert goers and the like jump up and down, sit and chill and basically have a good time for many years now. I love the song, and whenever my class starts losing it’s groove, I through it on and make them listen to it… Some of them hate it, some of them love it but every time I play it I say, " Now think about that. You are all dismissed, and if you come back to class having not done the reading again, be prepared to take a little test. Consider yourself warned…"
It’s worked so far, but then again my students don’t have many other teachers playing Lynyrd Skynyrd in class to prove a point.
