My favorite Zeppelin song changes for reasons I can’t fully explain. It could be the seasons or moods or just the way we all evolve with the passage of time.
This one has got me now
It makes me feel like a Viking…the rain is dripping off the horns on my helmet-the wind is numbing my rough and weatherworn face. I taste the salt of the cold northern sea as waves crash against my wooden vessel, there is no safe coastline in sight.
“Hammer of the gods; drive our ships to new lands”
The yelling and screaming keeps me at my oars-it is compelling me to destiny.
The rhythmic guitar riff is like the wind and lightning of the storm that rages.
The baseline is the beating of the rain.
The drums are coming up from the frothy depths to smash the fragile planks underfoot; ready to take me with any misstep.
I FEEL THIS SONG!
