    General CommentI think the song's meaning is found in this stanza:

    "And the storm that I thought would blow over
    Clouds the light of the love that I found"

    I believe this song is about a man who is singing to (although she is not actually there) an ex who he is still foolishly hung up on, and that this longing is keeping him from fully loving the one he is with now.

    ('Light of the love that I found' is repeated over and over too)

    General CommentThe lyrics are rather straitforward. It's about a guy waiting for a girl on the wrong block. This is definatly one of Zeppelin's best songs. The Samba breakdown is just fantastic and really shows of Bonham's ability as a drummer. Has a real 50's feel good vibe to the whole track. Led Zeppelin was nothing short of genius.

    General CommentMy most favorite song by Led Zeppelin: This song could put anybody in a good mood. John P.J. kicks arce on the piano, Jimmy P's solo with the octavator is insane, J Bonham also kicks major arce on the drum beat; its one of the most complicated beats ever written in rock history and the solo is pure lunacy, Robert P also sang very well. If I were to find out that I was going to die tommorow I could put this song on and I'd be the happiest person alive, for my last day atleast. Led Zeppelin is the greatest band ever. I highly suggest, if you were to suggest a song of LZ's for somebody to hear, you suggest this one.

    General CommentWhy wasn't I 18 in 1973, too?? OMG! I would have lived it up!!! You know the guy Vic in the movie "Almost Famous" that travels with LZ ,but not WITH LZ? And he totally flips out when he just barely crosses paths with one of the band members? lol Yeah that woulda been me...Look out Jimmy Page, here I come!! ;-)

    General CommentAbsolutely amazing guitar solo. A favorite of mine, such a happy song with a kind of a sadder meaning. Like was said before, the rythym and or beat of this song is really unique.
