"Dazed and Confused" as written by and Jimmy Page....
Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true
Wanted a woman never bargained for you
Lots of people talk and few of them know
Soul of a woman was created below, yeah

You hurt and abused tellin' all of your lies
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize
Sweet little baby I don't know where you've been
Gonna love you baby, here I come again

Every day I work so hard
Bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away

Don't know where you're goin'
Only know just where you've been
Sweet little baby, I want you again

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill

    General CommentIs it just me or does Plant seem to get off on Pages whaling guitar around about 2 minutes into the song. This song seeps into every part of my being.. simply hypnotic.

    General Commentthis song really does have a mood behind it, when you listen to it, it REALLY gets into you, I mean a way that you actually need to play it when your dazed and confused, I did when like 4 girls asked me out, I just sat in my living room and played this song until objects in our neighbors house fell over.

    General Commentshe must be one of those girls who plays tons of games to make him want her more by playing hard to get and she's able to do it good too obviously he thinks she's super hot "lord how they hypnotize". but at the same time she drives him crazy and frustrates him because "Wanted a woman, never bargained for you." well.. i'd definitally take that as an insult if i were her. and even though i can in no way relate to the lyrics WOW this song is awesome! it has so much emotion and mmmm everything is perfect. i do have to get a really super long version of this song i'd listen to it so often.! lol maybe someday i'll learn how to play it with a bow. that would b fun.

    General Commentjust fyi this song was origanally written by the yardbirds (which page, beck, and clapton were all a part of at one time) then in the middle of the yardbirds tour the band broke up cept page and he had to keep touring so he hired people to be in his band and Pete Townshend (lead guitarist of The Who) said that the band "will go down like a led zeppelin" meaning that the band wont make it far in the music career and the band decided to take Led Zeppelin as their name.

    General Comment1.Shitface is right--it was stolen from Jake Holmes by the Yardbirds.
    2.Jimmy Page has said numerous times that it was Keith Moon who coined the "Lead Balloon" line.
    3.Great song but unnecessarily long in concert.

    General CommentIf you don't know what this song is about, your too young to know. Jimmy wrote all of it, lyrics and all while he was in the yardbirds near the end of their career. (i dont think it ever made it to the studio with them) Btw. Jeff beck Jimmy Page and Eric clapton were all in the yard birds, but not at one time. It was clapton, then beck, then jimmy and beck, then jimmy. The raw emotion and power of this song is just chilling. It just rages with that dark underground vibe. Darkest lyrics of the day (looks like small beer today).
    Awesome music. Some of the greatest guitar work jimmy's ever done (live, that is) btw, the violin sequence isnt a load of bull, its very technical musical bits. Alot of tricky bits in there, takes alot of theory knowledge to do for 20 minutes.

    General Commentpage admittedly jacked this song from someone else. this song and "tangerine" are the only songs soley credited to page (that featured other members on the track). the lyrics and main guitar line were pretty much stolen. i hate to think of it, but it's undeniable. page did use his violin bow on this song until around 77, when page refused to play this live claiming it was too rudimentary (i think he just felt guilty because he stole it), and so the bow solo was incorporated into "whole lotta love"

    General Commenti am only 16 and zeppelin was way before my time but they are the best band ever created. I have noticed that Led Zeppelin band t-shirts have become really popular and this kind or makes me mad because all of the people that i see wearing this shirts, couldnt name a single zeppelin song if their lives depended on it. Then there are the true zeppelin fans like me that wear the t-shirts cuz i like the band and every one thinks that i wear them just to follow along with some fad, and that really pisses me off
