Werewolves in Sweet Home Alabama All Summer Long

Don't know if you are familiar with it, but I like Kid Rock's "new" song, "All Summer Long" (I previously mentioned that I find it funny that there's a version with "smokin'" censored, but not the other potential illegal and/or amoral things). "New" - there's a funny notion. My wife noticed, naturally, that you could overlay "Sweet Home Alabama" over the song with little interference. Personally, I noticed that it sounds like "Werewolves of London" (ca. 1978 or so; until this morning I thought it was "Werewolves of Thunder" and had no clue who the artist was or what the lyrics were) by (the late) Warren Zevon. (If you take the link on "All Summer Long" - above or here - you'll see that it was, in fact, based on the two.)

Despite the failure to change the pitch of "Sweet Home" to match, consider this YouTube video which does a comparison of all three songs:

Whatcha think? If you want a version of Werewolves with the lyrics embedded in the video, take a look at this vid on YouTube. Anyway... I like all three songs. Not necessarily together, especially when one's in a slightly different key, but all three.
