Free Fallin'

Private Cocktail Party in Chicago, IL
Intro to Free Fallin'

So back when I was in New York I was drinking a lot. But I had a good time. And I'd come home to my house, and I'd bring people. Some people I knew, some people I didn't. "Come hang out." Lost a lot of valuables. But made a lot of friends along the way. It's not the valuables you lose, Eric, it's the friends you make along the way.

And I took my guitar out, cause, cheating. And I wanted to play this next song. Two reasons I played it the way that I played it was because it was really late at night and I'm a good neighbor. I'm a very good neighbor. I happen to be a very good quiet neighbor. And also I can't sing that high, the way the chorus goes. So I did this version exactly almost as you hear it. This was the way I sang it, this mellow kind of midnight way. 

And it's gone on to be—a lot of people think it's my song. A lot of younger people think it's my song. And I hope I've brought something a little extra to it. Like maybe a high blood alcohol content.
