Baby I love your way/Freebird …..


Image

Baby, I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley“, subtitled “Free Baby“, is a song by the American dance-pop band Will to Power. The song combines elements of two previously recorded rock songs: “Baby, I Love Your Way“, a #12 Billboard Hot 100 hit from 1976 by the British-born singer Peter Frampton; and American Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s song “Free Bird“, which hit #19 on the Hot 100 chart in 1975.

Will to Power’s medley of these two songs had more of a synthesized dance beat (as opposed to the rock ballad-like nature of the two original songs). It rose to #1 on the Hot 100 chart on December 3, 1988 (the last medley to do so on that chart) remaining there for one week. It also peaked at #2 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart. Additionally, in the “Freebird” section, the line “and the bird you cannot change” in the original version was changed to “and this bird will never change”.

In March and April 2009, VH1 ran a countdown of the 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s. Will to Power’s “Baby, I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley” placed at #97 on the countdown despite the group having another Top 10 hit, a cover version of the 1975 10cc hit “I’m Not in Love” (#7), in 1991.

Fading Away

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they’re moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city

Image

But don’t hesitate
Cause your love, your love wont wait ho-no-no

Ooh baby I love your way every day
Ooh wanna tell you I love your way every day
Ooh wanna be with you night and day

Image

Hey yeah
I love your way

If I leave here tomorrow
Will you still remember me
For I must be traveling on now
There’s so many places I gotta see

Image

But if I stayed here with you girl
Things just wouldn’t be the same
Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird will never change,
And this bird will never change …

Image

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power to shine
I can see them under the pines

Image

But don’t hesitate
Cause your love wont wait

Ooh baby I love your way
Ooh wanna tell you I love your way
Ooh baby I love your way
Every day now
Ooh wanna tell you I love your way
I love your way
Ooh baby I love your way
Give me you way, wanna tell you I love your way
Ooh baby I love your way

Image

Ooh baby I love your way
Ooh wanna tell you I love your way
Ooh baby I love your way
Ooh wanna tell you I love your way
Ooh baby I love your way
