Rain Song

This is the springtime of my loving-
The second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
So little warmth I’ve felt before.
It isn’t hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.
It is the summer of my smiles-
Flee from me keepers of the gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
It is to you I give this tune.
Ain’t so hard to recognize-
These things are clear to all from
Time to time. ooooh...
Talk talk-
I’ve felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go
I cursed the gloom that set upon us...
But I know that I love you so
But I know that I love you so.
These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all a little rain
Must fall.
Just a little rain?
Ooooh, yeah yeah yeah!

Damn.....I love their lyrics. Every fucking word of every fucking song. Robert Plant was so entirely fucking sexy back in the day. Prancing around stage, always leading with his groin. That stance as he held the mic to his mouth and just belted shit out. Wizard Page playin' his licks like a master behind him. Bonham hittin' the skins with that Gonzo force and the wise Mr. Jones....Mmmmm....

I would have been that groupie who banged each one while the rest watched and then let them do that thing with the fish.

You ever read Hammer of the Gods? Best rock 'n' roll book. Ever.

Hmmmm....maybe this should be today's theme...you've touched my sweet spot when you break the Led out like that.

From "Rain Song" to "When the Levee Breaks" (after Hurricane Katrina, I will never hear the latter song in the same way again).

I'm so glad it's raining for you! Yes, I truly believe it's raining JUST FOR YOU, because you pleaded and asked nicely :)

May your flowers grow large and pretty.

You made the news last night! Okay, okay, your town made the news. Rain rain, stay today, go away another day; Bless us, rain, with your sweet love, fall from skies, so grey above; Water the flowers, color the grass, you've been gone too long, you stupid ass!

Thanks for taking the rain from my town, by the way! It was refreshing to have a little sunshine.
