    This haunting tune sucked me in when it came out, and I still love it. Even with the cheesy video of the desert here in California. Just a few months ago I suddenly thought, hey maybe I should try to learn how to play it, and am still having fun with it, and it is such a great Strat song.

    Yeah, it’s a fun one to play. I learned it shortly after the album came out. Great Strat song for sure!

    Sometime back I learned the recurring motif on my newly acquired classical, in wistful toreador style :cool:

    it's one of my main go-tos

    No guilt necessary! I love Plant's solo offerings. This album was my go-to in high school. Also, that first album gets no love and it's one of my faves. I love Robbie Blunt's playing on both albums.

    I remember as a 14 year old in love with classic rock waiting in the rain at Sam Goody's record store with a buddy to buy that first album. The whole rock community was abuzz with wonder as nobody knew the new guitarist at the time and everyone was like 'How in the world could they compete with Jimmy Page???' Those were fun frickin' times man, when you anticipated releases at the record store.

    I learned this song on guitar literally the week it was released. I thought the sound and melody was so cool. It's beautiful when the chords come in a bit later. And the tone is perfect and quite unique for what was on the airwaves at that time.

    Robert Plant was a big part of my music as a teenager, and yes, his MTV videos!! LOL you brought up a boatload of memories. Thanks for sharing.

    You're right, no guilt! Some folks do look down on 80s pop songs though. The entire album was excellent.

    No guilt necessary. I think Robert Plant's first two solo albums are underrated gems.

    This could've been on In Through The Out Door:



    Great walk-off lead by Robbie Blunt...and Phil Collins on drums!
