Sweet Child O’ Mine

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

Canzone: Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle è il secondo singolo estratto dall’album Appetite for Destruction ed è considerata una delle più importanti canzoni rock degli anni ottanta e novanta. Fu scritta da Axl Rose e Slash. Secondo Rose, l’ispirazione per il testo giunse da un incontro che lui e un amico avevano avuto con un barbone mentre vagavano per New York in autostop[1]. Cercando di impaurire i due giovani, l’uomo urlò loro contro: “Sapete dove siete? Siete nella giungla, miei cari, state per morire!”. (Wikipedia)
