This week our music itinerary takes us at Bron-Yr-Aur country cottage in Wales where the fabulous Led Zeppelin wrote most of their third album (Led Zeppelin III), from which the song “Tangerine” is taken.
Led Zeppelin (Robert Plant vocals, Jimmy Page guitar, John Paul Jones bass and keyboards, and John Bonham drums) were an English rock band, formed in 1968, who immensely contributed to shape and create the history of rock music. Jimmy Page once said:
“I wanted Zeppelin to be a marriage of blues, hard rock and acoustic music topped with heavy choruses — a combination that had never been done before. Lots of light and shade in the music”.
And that’s exactly what they have been and will always be.
“A song of love in its most innocent stages”, as Robert Plant defined it, Tangerine is a ballad whose sorrowless rhythm hides a strange bitterness.
Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again?
And I do.
When Mr Plant says the words “And I do” and Mr Page starts his guitar solo, I can assure you I have butterflies in my stomach!
Enjoy the song and give your opinions
