    All along the Watchtower

    Outside in the cold distance, a wildcat did growl
    Two riders were approachin
    And the wind began to howl

    Or do I have to highlight the symbolism and point out where this excerpt comes from...?

    Re: All along the Watchtower

    Ripvdub and I were riding up to the game last night.... we heard the best football song. They should play it every week.
    Chumbawamba

    I Get Knocked Down
    We'll be singing
    When we're winning
    We'll be singing
    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You're never going to keep me down
    ******* the night away
    ******* the night away
    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the better times:
    \"Oh Danny Boy
    Danny Boy
    Danny Boy...\"
    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You're never going to keep me down
    ******* the night away
    ******* the night away
    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the better times:
    \"Don't cry for me
    Next door neighbour...\"
    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You're never going to keep me down
    We'll be singing
    When we're winning
    We'll be singing

    Don't want to burst any Hendrix fans bubble, but that song is Dylan's.

    Re: All along the Watchtower

    Factoid: Jimi Hendrix had ONE top 20 hit and it was All Along the Watchtower, a cover of a Bob Dylan song.

    First time I heard that I was shocked. All those great songs and never a top 20 hit.


    TRUE & VALIANT

    Re: All along the Watchtower

    Though his music was associated with an Academy Award. Anyone care to guess what movie, and what OTHER thing was unusual about the Award?

    Edited to add: I'm having trouble finding a reference to his posthumous Award.

    I'm assuming you are talking about Hendrix not Dylan, since you referred to the award as posthumous, and I would guess the movie is Woodstock.

    The rest of your riddle is too vague!
