"Baby, I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley (Free Baby)" is a song by American dance-pop band Will to Power. The song combines elements of two previously recorded rock songs: "Baby, I Love Your Way", a number-12 Billboard Hot 100 hit from 1976 by British-born singer Peter Frampton, and "Free Bird" by American Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, which reached number 19 on the Hot 100 chart in 1975.
The medley spent one week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, on the issue dated December 3, 1988. It also peaked at number two on the Billboard adult contemporary chart. Internationally, the song topped the Norwegian Singles Chart for seven weeks, spent a week at number one in Canada, and reached the top 20 in Australia, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. In March and April 2009, VH1 ran a countdown of the 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s, placing it at number 97 on the countdown despite the group having another US top-10 hit in 1991 with a cover version of the 1975 10cc hit "I'm Not in Love."
