Song of the Day: "Dazed and Confused" By Lead Zeppelin

The first concert I ever attended was one of the best possible - Led Zep in their prime, for a big arena show, with levitating drum platform and all the ampification, lights, and lasers technologically possible, at the now-long-gone Coliseum... apparently the first rock concert at the Richfield Coliseum, in January 1975... I remember it like it was yesterday.

One of the first and greatest "heavy metal" rock bands of all time, performing one of their greatest songs, so appropriate for that evil woman Cleveland today... and Jimmy Page is so amazing here... and Robert Plant... damn... a 29 minute song and worth listening to every second...

"Dazed And Confused"

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
