    General CommentI am not entirely sure what the song means...but...
    it's my favorite song of all time. I think it's just a song meant to be played when you are driving down the freeway with someone you love.

    General CommentI think you guys are reading too much in to this: It's about being a player, being a rock star, staying single, and not being burned by emotions for a woman, especially one who doesn't, or won't, have feelings for you. "Lonely at the bottom (alone), dizzy at the top (too many), standing in the middle, ain't going to stop," because "When you're the master of the off-chance, When you don't expect a lot". Control your luck with women, and it comes to you; don't control yourself and, well...its explained right there.

    General CommentThe meaning I pull from this one....well.....I kinda see it as being about the hardships of love.....You can't live with it...But god knows you can't live without it......."It's lonely at the bottom, Man, it's dizzy at the top".....that says a lot....Your blue without a girl....but once you've got one...she'll give you a run for your money.......just my thoughts though.....

    General CommentSorry my mistake, the song(In the Evening) is about the Devil and the Black Sabbath. Celebration Day and Achilles Last Stand are about the Pact with Satan. You want the meaning, here it is. After being a Zep Head for over 25 years and meeting Page a few years ago, believe me, this is the truth, study and dig deep for yourself, guess about a thing you really ought to know.

    General Commentinteresting interpretation....
    anyway, this is a very good song, at first glance it seems to be a song about somone who is controlled by his girlfriend and needs to stand up to her...and then his journey from the bottom back up.
