Summer Mix 2013 - Track 3

Because I am going to Baltimore this year, I thought this would be appropriate. I started listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd in the summer of 2003 when I was traveling to Maryland a lot with my mom. I bought my first Lynyrd Skynyrd CD, the Best Of, at the Walmart in Brandywine, MD. Mom and I listened to the CD for the whole trip.  I can't wait to listen to Skynyrd on my iPod on the way to Baltimore, it adds to the Southern feel.

  1. Er, 謝謝, so to speak. *printing 沒有共產黨就沒有新中國 lyrics to follow along like the idiot she is*

    Is Alabama Maryland to you? (That sounds snarky to me, I'm sorry orz)

    If I've already submitted this, it likely doesn't have the full detail, so please approve this one rather than the other one; the other one may have just been for Track 2...

    1. It isn't, but to me Sweet Home Alabama is the perfect Southern anthem and I consider parts of Maryland to be the South. Whenever I go down South, I have to play it (and the whole Skynyrd CD). :)

    2. I said 沒有 to any more Chinese today, though I have indeed printed that and written it with characters on top and pinyin underneath like I'd learned is the best way to study.
      It's overwhelming and I'm not even headed back any time soon as far as I know.

      Why? Is it that far down?

      (Ah, I thought Birmingham was in Arkansas, but it is in fact West Midlands and Alabama)

    3. It's a middle state, but some parts of Maryland consider themselves Southern. I have coworkers of mom that live closer to DC and consider themselves Southern.

    4. *twitch* China in Chinese is translated as middle state by most people: 中国/中國 depending on how you swing, and Maryland is not the same place.

      Is that especially elegant to refer to them? Your mother's coworkers live close to DC and call themselves Southern, and they aren't that close to you... I dunno. I think English people should be more attentive to their constructions when speaking in English... I'm sorry, the middle state thing bothers me. x_x

      In a half hour and a little I have an art-class friend visiting for tea.

  2. Heh; interestingly enough, I heard this song long before I heard "Sweet Home Alabama":
