I Can See Your Spirit

Songfacts®:

  • BCC vocalist and bassist Glen Hughes penned this song with guitarist Joe Bonamassa. Hughes told Musicradar.com: "I wrote the first half of the music, the riff, but I listened back and decided that it was too close to Zeppelin's 'Misty Mountain Hop.' So Joe added a little turnaround to the riff, and before you before you know it, we had this fantastic A-D-E barroom rocker. There's not much more to say about this one. A nice, early '70s romp. It's rock 'n' roll."
