So I was on a big ol' honkin' Creedence kick today and it made me think of all the Southern-flavored music that for some reason resonates with me as strongly as anything I listen to, despite the fact that I wish Sherman's March to the Sea could be a never-ending affair.
Southerners annoy the piss out of me, we should have let them bounce out of the Union, and every time I hear a Southern accent I immediately think whoever's speaking is borderline retarded. But at the same time, a lot of my all-time favorite musicians and/or songs are ones I love because they conjure up some weird desire to sit on a dirty front porch, sipping moohshine, tending to a farm, keeping the Confederacy in my heart, hating negroes, and fucking my family members (more so).
Anyone else know what I'm talking about? What artists or individual songs make you relive what it was like growing up poor in the South even though you never did? And anyone that says Sweet Home Alabama should be set upon en masse.
