Anthem for the Clemson game

Last year I really enjoyed the poster who picked the craft brew of the week, matching it to the game and enlightening us with the merits of the brew and why they were relevant to that weeks opponent. I thought it would be fun to pick out a "song of the week" in the same way. I had my song picked out for the opener, but my internet skills being really weak, I chickened out and didn't post. The very song I picked for that day is even better here. The song I picked is this 1970 hit classic written by JJ Cale and performed by Eric Clapton.

"After Midnight"

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

After midnight, we're gonna shake your tambourine.
After midnight, it's all gonna be peaches and cream.
We're gonna cause talk and suspicion;
We're gonna give an exhibition.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

Here is the performance of this song I chose to share with you

Eric Clapton & Mark Knopfler - After Midnight [San Francisco -88] (via DogSwede1)

>>>>------>

I prefer the original, faster version of this song, but this version had several features I wanted to share :)

A.) Back up singers (very important to any group) =Stork and Devonta doing there job all night

2.) bongo player in the background keeping the beat w/o gloves =Jack's grandson moving the chains

D.) guitar legend on the periphery = QB guru Jimbo on the sidelines

puntrooskie.) cameo by guitarist at very end = Karlos taking one to the house in his limited reps

clemsoning.) keyboardist, drummer, guitarists = none of them may be as talented as Sammy, but give me our group of receivers every day and twice on Saturday

duh.) Clapton = Jameis

357*.) how about we all let Bobby be J.J. Cale

koolaid.) this was filmed and recorded in 1988 = the year Clemson realized WE ARE FLORIDA STATE and .....they are not

>>>>----> 37 - 24 NOLES >>>>----->

Aguayo kicks a 60 yarder to close out the half and draw the Noles within striking distance (and shut up crowd).

Second half "Jimbo, Jaboo and the boys" show Clemson how you "whale on a guitar" !

PS, @DRUSSO >>>>-----> I do NOT want YOUR interpretation of this song ;)
