    I just heard from my buddy who heard on the radio that Sammy will be remaking this classic for his upcoming album. First line will be along the lines of "Tuesday morning 8 AM I saw fire in the sky." If true, good for Sammy who has always put out patriotic songs, and at least he is keeping busy while others we know sit with their thumbs up their asses.

    I heard Sam was going to be updating "I Can't Drive 55" as well - bumping it up to 65.

    More titles he is redoing.

    Ironically, I was just talking to a buddy of mine this past weekend about this song. Sammy always says that this song means something different each time he plays it. Well, it will now have an even important meaning behind it. This song is just timeless.

    Let's just hope he donates the proceeds to the Red Cross, FDNY or some other good cause. I'd hate to think that Sam's trying to cash in on the tragedy. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    LOL. I nearly choked to death on sunflower seeds after I read this.

    Nice sentiment on Sam's part if he's doing this, though.

    Sounds like a good idea. The lyrics and the mood of the song fit the situation.

    I really hope he doesn't do that, and I doubt he will. I love that song (especially with Eddie soloing at the end), and altering the lyrics would be lame.

    Reminds me of Elton John and that horrible Diana song. I liked Candle in the Wind, but the altered lyrics were pathetic and it has brought the original down a notch.

    I believe the part about remaking Eagles Fly. I DON'T believe the part about remaking I Can't Drive 55.

    Remember the sunflower seed thread I made last year?
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
