A Music Blog (#6: Get away already!)

So this is a band I'll probably feature a few times. I'll blame my dad because he is a huge fan of them and so by proxy I am now too. =p

Everyone knows Led Zeppelin, right? Stairway to Heaven is NOT the song I'll do though as people already know that I imagine, and a few others like Mad Dog... so here's a favourite of mine that doesn't get airplay over here on the radio! (If this does play where you live on the radio then I am jealous). Note there's another reason I'm picking this one though.

Alternate link!

Babe, baby, baby, I'm Gonna Leave You.
I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you.
I'll leave you when the summertime,
Leave you when the summer comes a-rollin'
Leave you when the summer comes along.

Baby, baby, I don't wanna leave you,
I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble.
Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I believin',
We really got to ramble.
I can hear it callin' me the way it used to do,
I can hear it callin' me back home!

Babe...I'm gonna leave you
Oh, baby, you know, I've really got to leave you
Oh I can hear it callin 'me
I said don't you hear it callin' me the way it used to do?

I know I never never never never never gonna leave your babe
But I got to go away from this place,
I've got to quit you, yeah
Baby, ooh don't you hear it callin' me?
Woman, woman, I know, I know
It feels good to have you back again
And I know that one day baby, it's really gonna grow, yes it is.
We gonna go walkin' through the park every day.
Come what may, every day

It was really, really good.
You made me happy every single day.
But now... I've got to go away!

Baby, baby, baby, baby
That's when it's callin' me
I said that's when it's callin' me back home...

Really picks up around 2:25 with the guitar riff, but the whole thing is amazing to listen to. Also that singing! Not sure anyone else sings quite like that. This was originally a folk song, but Led Zeppelin went and did this cover in the late 60's. Not a bad version, certainly. =p

As for the other reason to pick this; it might sound familar to ones who bothered to listen to the song I featured by Chicago! That bit that appears regularly in this song like at 2:25 is how 25 or 6 to 4 starts, and the latter was made a year later. I recently realised this and google searched to see it wasn't just me anyway, but no lawsuit or anything happened. Could have been borrowed, maybe? Who knows. Both are good songs at any rate!

Next entry!
