"Heartbreaker" as written by and David Wolfert Carole Bayer Sager....
Hey fellas have you heard the news?
You know that Annie's back in town?
It won't take long just watch and see
How the fellas lay their money down

Her style is new but the face is the same
As it was so long ago
But from her eyes a different smile
Like that of one who knows

Well it's been ten years and maybe more
Since I first set eyes on you
The best years of my life gone by
Here I am alone and blue

Some people cry and some people die
By the wicked ways of love
But I'll just keep on rollin' along
With the grace of the Lord above

People talkin' all around 'bout the way you left me flat
I don't care what the people say, I know where their jive is at
One thing I do have on my mind, if you can clarify please do
It's the way you call me by another guy's name when I try to make love to you, yeah

I try to make love but it ain't no use
Give it to me, give it

Work so hard I couldn't unwind
Get some money saved
Abuse my love a thousand times
However hard I tried

Heartbreaker, your time has come
Can't take your evil way
Go away heartbreaker

    General CommentFirst of all, what is up with people on this site spelling his name Paige? It's Page, you sad sad people. I thought you said you were a guitar player Muzzy?

    Now to the song. This is THE definitive blues rock song. I mean, what in this world is better? Not many people have commented here mainly because theres not much in the lyrics to be interpreted, its pretty straight forward. Just a girl who makes guys fall in love with her and then dumps them. Anyway, top notch. To me, this is true Zeppelin, not the techno stuff they get into later in their career. They should have just kept it to blues rock and their odd style of folk rock. That's true Zep. Songs like In the Evening are good for what they are, just not up the Led Zeppelin par (although the live version on their DVD is a vast improvement, Page's whammy bar work is truly something to see.)

    General Commentok where the heck are the comments on this song? this has got to be one of zeppelin's greatest songs EVER! jimmy page's solo is absolutely incredible. robert plants vocals are stunning. john bonham was freakin rockin on drums and john paul jones was doing a heck of a job on bass. an absolutely incredible song. i can't believe i'm the first to comment on it.

    General CommentI used to think that the 'Annie' in the song was a prostitute or something, but now I'm not so sure. Either way, she is some kind of sexual predator that Mr. Plant finds it hard to break away from. The song is easily one of their best. The riff is perfect. Anyone else notice how Zeppelin's best riffs sound like orgasms? "Black Dog" and "The Ocean" spring to mind. For a direct and frankly appalling rip-off of this song, look no further than 'Strange Kind of Woman' by the decidedly average Deep Purple.

    General CommentWhen Page said that the solo was bad he was referring to the fact that it is *slightly* sloppy. But it still kicks ass. To listen to an even better solo pick up How The West Was Won. Great performance.
