38 Special

38 Special is an American rock band. Formed by vocalist Donnie Van Zant in 1975 in Jacksonville, Florida, the band initially had a straight-ahead Southern rock sound, much like Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band of his older brother Ronnie. By the early 1980s, the band began incorporating elements of blues rock, pop rock, and arena rock into their sound, kicking off a string of successful albums and singles.

Among 38 Special's best-known songs are "Caught Up in You" (1982) and "If I'd Been the One" (1983), both of which hit #1 on Billboard magazine's album rock chart, as well as "Second Chance" (1989), a #1 hit on Billboard's adult contemporary chart. According to Songfacts, it was the biggest Adult Contemporary hit of 1989. Other popular singles include "Hold On Loosely" (1981), "Fantasy Girl" (1981), "Back Where You Belong" (1984), and "Somebody Like You" (1986). These and other tracks are often played on classic rock radio stations.

After achieving three platinum albums and one gold album in the 80s, their popularity waned over the 90s-- although their 1997 single "Fade to Blue" hit #37 on the mainstream rock chart. More recently, the group's music came back into prominence after being featured in the 2001 cult classic comedy film 'Super Troopers', with songs such as "Trooper With An Attitude". They continue to tour to audiences in the American south and beyond.

The current lineup is comprised of vocalist Donnie Van Zant, guitarists Don Barnes and Danny Chauncey, bassist Larry Junstrom, keyboardist Bobby Capps, and drummer Gary Moffatt. Recently, both Donnie Van Zant and little brother Johnnie (the current frontman of Lynyrd Skynyrd) have joined forces as Van Zant and have released an album with another in the works.

Lyrics

    38 Special
    Tour De Force
    Back Where You Belong
    (Gary O'Connor)

    I heard you're askin' how I'm feeling, I guess I'll play it day by day
    I'm still around now, my heart is healing, but some things never gonna change

    'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
    I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

    I know that love, it don't come easy, it took so long, it's been hard to find
    So love, you must believe me, ain't gonna let it slip away
    I know I was wrong, I want you back where you belong

    Want you back where you belong, back where you belong

    I played around now, I've done some dealin'
    I found that love should be with you
    And so you're gone now, my head is reelin', don't wanna be with someone new

    And so I go, with a feeling inside me, 'cause I know what I'm leaving behind

    Want you back where you belong, back where you belong

    (Solo)

    I guess in time I stop and think it over, everything that we've been through
    This heart of mine may never find another, it loves me just the way you do
    Hey girl!

    I heard you're askin' how I'm feelin', I guess I'll play it day by day
    I'm still around now, my heart is healin', but some things never gonna change

    'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
    I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

    () - back where you belong, hey, hey

    I know that love, it don't come easy, it took so long, it's been hard to find
    And so love, you must believe me, ain't gonna let it slip away, baby
