You'll Accomp'ny Me by Bob Seger And The Silver Bulle on Grooveshark

Pop Bits:  The third single from "Against the Wind" came close to following the previous two into the Top 10, but fell just a bit short. This one is slightly more upbeat, but still has that same soft-rock sound that made the other two singles so successful.

ReduxReview:  Not as good as "Against the Wind" and better than "Fire Lake," so ends up being a pretty good tune. Although I will say that sometimes his soft rock ballads kind of bleed into each other. Still, this is solid Seger territory.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Kid Rock struck up a friendship with fellow Michigander Seger that led to them performing together at the pre-Super Bowl shows in 2006. In addition to being the person to induct Seger into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, Kid Rock sampled the guitar part of "You'll Accomp'ny Me" for the basis of his 2007 song "Amen." Rock has said that "Amen" is the best song he has ever written.
