97X Song Of The Daze

Led Zeppelin III
Play Video

Today’s offering from 1970s Led Zeppelin III is just two minutes, 26 seconds, which means you have time to listen to it. And, oh, there was no need for Led Zeppelin to make it any longer. Tight and power-packed does the job just fine. Listen to the lyrics and you’ll find yourself on a journey with the Norsemen/Vikings and how they “sweep (on) with threshing oar,” driven by the “hammer of the Gods,” eventually becoming “overlords” of the people and places they conquer with a responsibility to bring “peace and trust.” For me, it’s always been a broad-stroke analogy of Led Zeppelin coming to America and ruling the rock scene with Jimmy Page’s awe-inspiring guitar and composition, John Bonham’s booming drums, Robert Plant’s howls, shrieks and whoops and John Paul Jones’ steadfast, impeccable bass and keyboards. So, go ahead, click the video to listen to it. Playing it loud is a MUST.
