Walkin' - for your love
Walkin' - for your love
Walkin' - for your love
Walkin' - for your love


I'm only going where my eyes are going
I'm only going where my toes are pointed
I just bought me this new pair of big shoes
I'm only going if I can walk there with you


Shinin' - for your love
Shinin' - for your love
Shinin' - for your love
Shinin' - for your love


I'm afraid to open my eyes
I'm even afraid to look at you
Right here - I'm gonna open my eyes
I'm gonna move with you


Disappearin' - for your love
Disappearin' - for your love
Disappearin' - for your love
Disappearin' - for your love


We're only going in this closet here
I'm only going if the doorknob turns
I'm only going if the light goes on
I'm only going if I can boogie with you

True story, and probably told elsewhere on this site:

Ten years ago, my sons were playing on a very, very good high school soccer team.  They, with another stout-hearted young man, made a formidable defense that took the team to the Florida state championship game.  

One day I said something complimentary about that young man, and my older son replied, "Yeah, I think he has a feel for the game that comes from him getting high all the time."

"What?!?!"

Younger son: "C'mon, Dad, you didn't know he was a head?  After all, he owns every Widepsread Panic CD ever printed."

Later that night, over the internet, I ordered every Widespread Panic CD ever printed.  They have not disappointed.

I will refrain from any thoughts regarding condom usage and the like, but this song, which I have heard many times here, never seems to get anywhere. What is the f-ing point? There is a riff and there it is again: and again, ad infinitum (well, in truth it does end). It's not especially offensive, but neither does there seem to be any structure or point. Repeated listenings have failed to advance the case for the merits of this song. Maybe it's just me.

 
I think "a riff...again and again..without structure" is their point, as it seems to be with most so-called "jam bands".  It doesn't do much for me either, but plenty of folks seem to enjoy it.
Everybody in my homeless camps loves this song soooo much...

A Scott mention on RP nice.  I've been thinking about a Creek upload - what might pass LRC?

Funny you mention Scott, becaue I feel that he way overplays the guitar.  To each his own, but when I listen to Murawski play, I think that he needs a good editor. 

When Houser played with WSP he had a very unique guitar approach.  The band is very different now with Herring who I actually think has a similar approach as Scott.

It's also possible that I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about.
Love this tune - a happy, simple, soulful little ditty.

Love this song...

Right this minute Widspread Panic is at the 13th Annual Hannah's Buddies Charity Classic, March 30-31, 2012...

Orlando, Florida

The Hannah's Buddies Charity Classic began in 2000 with John Bell of Widespread Panic deciding to help his goddaughter and tens of thousands of children in their fight against SMA. Today, the golf tournament, silent/auction and concert lineup attracts more than 2,000 participants and has raised nearly $2 million for SMA research.

Easy for you to say and I agree!

Love this song- great instruments, great soulful voice, great hook.  If you have not seen WSP in concert you must do so (although I heard they are taking some time off), they are amazing!!!

Musically, I hear Belle and Sebastian in this one. Huh, never noticed that before.

Happy Day!
 A Whole Lotta Shaking and Moving Going On w'it this song here!!


perfect...




I love the beat - but the song itself is just not musically inspiring for me. Still, when I hear it, I tap my foot and do that stupid shoulder-jerk thing when you're sitting at the computer...

I hate this song.  I like this song. I won't rate it because I'm so ambivalent about it that I just can't make up my mind.


very groovy...  love it...

 
STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP ITT !


Oh, yes, we be dancing...  love it...

Yes, you don't really hear Steve Forbert's name much anymore.  He's still at it though; he played around here not long ago.


This is soooo fantastic...  we be dancing...




excellent...

Nah, Forbert's voice has NEVER sounded half as forced as JB's.

After Clapton's version of the blues, I'm glad they're grouped together. Sort of like a cloudy day. Ya just know its gonna improve eventually. Blow, wind, blow.

Widespread is a great example of the power of perseverence. I remember them playing around Athens in the late 80's and I am sure no one ever expected to see them playing sold out arenas. They have put together a nice career.
 
Agreed.  I missed a chance (several actually) to see them play at the flippin' National Guard Armory at Clemson U (go Tigers) for 5 bucks in the mid 80's.  Idiot.

This song absolutely sucks. It's like listening to a highschool band trying to imitate the Grateful Dead.

Is this the white guys blues set? Actually not bad for white guys. Will we segue to Blind Willie Johnson? (probably RL Burnside)
I'm hearing Steve Forbert

People are susceptible to empty stereotypes. They don't have to listen to judge - they see the name and make assumptions. Good times.
I'd get up and dance for sure! good sound! ilibjorn wrote:
Panic is way more than the music. They have a cult-like following (i mean cult in a good way). I went to a concert with an avid WSP fan and friend and I was diggin' it...on the floor EVERYONE was dancin' non-stop. After like an hour and a half I went up to the top of the arena thinking I could sit and take a break. Huh. EVERYbody up there was on their feet dancing their asses off! All young white kids. Unreal. they all know all the words to the songs. Best part is the parking lot. Lots of really great folk. Intermission. Pre-concert. Post-concert. Food. Drink. I think like the Dead, it becomes way more than the music.

I think this could use more cowbell.

Yes! That's what I'm talkin' about! It's Friday. Not just more cowbell. MORE WIDESPREAD PANIC!
It's funny..each time I see WP or String cheese or one of the others that fall into that category (in my mind) It is the best Live show and you really appreciate it more than for example right now hearing this is just kinda ...eh...whatever
oooh I remember when this song came out! Great to hear it here!!!
I love Widespread Panic!! So happy! So much energy!

One of my favorite WP songs. ETwilson, nice to see somebody from my hometown on these boards.

moving piece of music

It is weird for me all of WSP's songs sounded familiar to me when I first got into them, it's almost like I heard them growing up and just cant place where...and so maybe thats why I like htem so much

You say that like there is another kind. :nyah:
:frown:
Nuthin wrong with a little WP! (They have a brand new album that I am still working my way through, but it seems pretty good)
These guys are kinda growin' on me, well, a little bit, I guess.
Great set tonight! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

That's redundant. And yes, it does.
Not a bad song. The local radio station is really pushing their live shows.
zzzzzzzzz.....
Tune that got me into WSP.... nice Southern Rock....nice to hear it RP.

Nice little boogie groove to it. The WSP I've heard on RP isn't as asinine as what I have heard on live shows... maybe I just don't like live WSP? For shame!
Most live recordings don't do them any justice...you really must see them in person!

generic, tired rehash of a style that's already been done better.
:D Nothing like a little Panic on a Monday! Thanks, RP!
Little Feat would\'ve been proud to have it on their repertoire, I think. After each time RP plays it, I can\'t get it out of my head for a long time. Very nice how, after that pretty wild, swinging, very musical jamming, the singer comes in singing \'walking, for your love\' etc. in such a cool and easy way, as if nothing has happened :lol:
Just came from a 3 night Red Rocks bender with the home team. Thanks for playing Panic!
Man, does this song bring back memories of driving around western SC and NE Georgia. Back in 91, listening to WP, driving 85 North from Athens....
