30 Day Song Challenge - Day 11

Day 11 - A song from a favorite band.


Led Zeppelin - Kashmir


Favorite bands... Bee Gees (posted them the other day), Beach Boys, many country bands.  I suppose I chose Zep because it takes me back to a time of discovery, a time that was fun, evocative - my days of rock 'n roll.  Being in a dimly lit studio, trying to suffer through playing bands such as Sepultura, Slayer, and Metallica.  Metal just wasn't my thing.  Sifting through the old vinyl in the archives, I discovered a genre I knew nothing of, and came to have a brief affair with.  A hot, dirty, passionate affair, with the likes of Robert Plant, The Eagles, Journey, the Stones, classic F-Mac, Seger, Springsteen, and more. 

One of the most horrendous pet peeves of mine is a jock that segues or talks over the last hook in one of my favorite songs - the tail ending of All Of My Love when Plant wails forlornly "I get a little bit lonely.."  Best part of an already amazing song, so overlooked.  Sigh.

I chose Kashmir over Love because for me, it best represents the culmination of the combined talents of the group.  Hope you enjoy.
