Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz
Album: Are You Gonna Go My WayReleased: 1993Charted:
This is about Jesus Christ, whom Lenny referred to as "The Ultimate Rock Star." It's about how God gives choice to man about where to turn. (thanks, Ramon - Ottawa, Canada)
This was not released as a single in the US, but in 1995 a live version was used as the B-side of Kravitz' "Rock And Roll Is Dead."
Kravitz played this on Saturday Night Live in 1993. (thanks, Michael - Mountain View, CA)
In an interview posted on his website, Kravitz said: "We were just jamming in the studio. You know, I was jamming with Craig Ross, who I wrote the song with. It was one of those songs that happened in 5 minutes. We were jamming. I thought there was something happening. I told Henry to turn the tape machines on, and we played it. And that was it. And then I went and wrote the lyrics on a brown paper bag, I remember at my loft on Broome Street at the time. Went in and sang it the next day. And that was it." (thanks, Martin - Rostock, Germany)
