A Music Blog (#25: I prefer sweet and sour myself)

This song for today has a few guitar riffs and solos in it! One at the beginning (relatively simple I suppose), a short piece after the first chorus and then the rather long one after the second. As with the previous this is one song I would think most people would have heard but it's worth a relisten anyways.

Granted, with Guns N' Roses (which is probably not to be confused with Toys R' Us) there's a bunch of songs that have neat solos that are worth listening to besides this one.

Lyrics:
Spoiler:

She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by

Woah oh oh oh Sweet child o' mine
Woah oh oh oh Sweet love of mine

Woah oh oh oh Sweet child o' mine
Woah oh oh oh Sweet love of mine

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Sweet child o' mine


The song is a love song by the singer about his then girlfriend. The song had actually just started out as a joke in a jam session with the riff, but the rest of the band members went and wrote lyrics and the rest of the song around it. Not a bad result from that as it got them #1 in a few places going off ratings!

That guitar solo is always my favourite part to listen to from this. It leads nicely to the song's ending when it builds up with the 'where do we go now' part. (It's also nicer to listen to on a new laptop with good audio! \o/)

    This was one of the first GnR songs I heard and I absolutely loved it - it's suuuuch a good song. It's one of the few songs that's been playing constantly for well-over 20 years now and yet never gets boring. Great choice!

    Yeah, I am a big fan of classics that still sound good even after you listen to them a lot. \o/
