STEVE MILLER and his BAND released masterpiece album FLY LIKE AN EAGLE back in 1976. The second single from the LP is to me and millions the track to go completely nuts to. ROCK ‘N ME is no less than a classic diamond that puts a giant smile on my face every, countless, time I hear it while yelling the lyrics out loud, word by word. Here’s what author Steve Miller revealed about what inspired him to write his top-notch rocker, back then: “elements of “Rock’n Me”, particularly the intro, was a tip of the hat to British group Free’s “All Right Now”. Yeah, it’s a tack on the wall for Paul (Kossoff). I did one concert in the 2 years that I was off the road. I went to London and played with Pink Floyd… it was a big, huge outdoor show so we needed a big rock and roll number that was really going to excite everybody. I just put it together and didn’t think much about it.” The banger hit the top spot of the US singles chart on 6 November 1976. Forty years ago today!…

Here’s a stunning and euphoric live rendition that gets the audience
and definitely, you too on your feet while going totally bonkers…

Well I’ve been lookin’ real hard and I’m tryin’ to find a job
But it just keeps gettin’ tougher every day
But I got to do my part ’cause I know in my heart
I got to please my sweet baby, yeah
Well, I ain’t superstitious, and I don’t get suspicious
But my woman is a friend of mine
And I know that it’s true that all the things that I do
Will come back to me in my sweet time

So keep on rock’n me baby
Keep on a rock’n me baby (x3)

I went from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Tacoma
Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A.
Northern California where the girls are warm
So I could be with my sweet baby, yeah

Keep on a rock’n me baby ( x5)

Don’t get suspicious, now don’t be suspicious
Babe, you know you are a friend of mine
And you know that it’s true that all the things that I do
Are gonna come back to you in your sweet time
I went from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Tacoma
Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A.
Northern California where the girls are warm
So I could hear my sweet baby say

Keep on a rock’n me baby (x7)
