Hey, David!  Thanks for sharing your song!  Yep, it does recall classic rock songs.  I like the energy.  I bet it goes over well live.

I wonder if you should keep the last two lines of the chorus the same, so you get the “Rock Along” hook in there one more time?  Just a thought.

I’d also be careful about using the words “rock” or “rocking” in places other than your hook- it steals some of the power from the title/hook every time you do that.  I’m okay with the 1st line of the chorus, but I’d try to avoid it everywhere else.  It’ll give your hook more punch if it’s a word we haven’t already heard several times in other places in the song.

Hope that helps!  Please pay it forward by leaving a comment on another writer’s song.  Thanks!

[Chorus 1]
You know they call it Rock n’ Roll
Cause hot rockin’ music moves your soul
The beat gets down inside your bones
Come on and lose your mind until you’re gone
Turn it on, turn it up, and rock along

I play swingin’ music all day long
Dance across my living room floor
I love playin’ n’ singin’ real fast songs
And every time I always want more
Turn it on, turn it up, and rock along

[Chorus 2]
You know they call it Rock n’ Roll
Cause hot rockin’ music moves your soul
The beat gets down inside your bones
Come on lose your mind until you’re gone
Turn it on, turn it up, and dance along
Turn it on, turn it up, and rock along

Feelin’ the music in rockin’ songs
Makin’ you dance like never before
Shake your body baby even if it’s wrong
Come on and use the whole dance floor

[Music Bridge]

Feelin’ the music in rockin’ songs
Makin’ you dance like never before
Shake your body baby even if it’s wrong
Come on and use the whole dance floor

[Repeat Chorus 1]

[Repeat Chorus 2]

Outro:
Turn it on, turn it up, and rock along
ROCK ON!
