Led Zeppelin - 'The Crunge' (Official Audio)

I wanna tell you about my good thing
I ain't disclosing no names, but
He sure is a good friend, and
I ain't gonna tell you where he comes from, boy
If I tell you, you won't come again, hey
I ain't gonna tell you nothing,
But I do will, but I know, yeah!
Now let me tell you about my girl
I open up a newspaper and what do I see?

Ah, ah
See my girl, ah, looking at me
Ooh, and when she walks, she walks
Let me tell you, when she talks, she talks
And when she looks me in my eye
She's my baby, Lord,
I wanna make her mine, baby
Ooh, tell me, baby,
What you want me to do!
And you want me to love you,
Love some other men?
Ooh, ain't gonna call me Mr. Pitiful, no!
I don't need no respect from nobody, no

Ah yeah, no, no

I ain't gonna tell you nothing,
I ain't gonna tell you no more, no!
She's my baby, let me tell you
That I love her so and, and!
She is the woman I really wanna love
And let me tell you more
Ooh! She's my baby let me tell you,
She lives next door
She's the one a woman that I know
I ain't going, I ain't going,
I ain't going to tell
I ain't going to tell you one thing
That you really ought to know, boy!

She's my lover, baby,
And I love her so, and
She's the one that really
Makes me whirl and twirl, and
She's the kind of lover that makes me
Feel the whole world, and
She's the one who really makes me
Jump and shout, oh!
She's the kind of girl,
I know what it's all about!
Take it on
Take it, take it, take it

Ah, excuse me
Oh, will you excuse me?
I'm just trying to find the bridge!
Has anybody seen the bridge?
(Have you seen the bridge?)
I ain't seen the bridge!
(Where's that confounded bridge?)

Led Zeppelin - 'The Crunge'
Τον πρώτο ανοιξιάτικο μήνα συμπληρώθηκε μισός αιώνας από την κυκλοφορία του μουσικού δίσκου των Led Zeppelin "Houses of the Holy". Το πέμπτο full length album της θρυλικής μπάντας ηχογραφήθηκε από τον Δεκέμβριο του 1971 έως τον Αύγουστο του 1972 και κυκλοφόρησε στις 28 Μαρτίου 1973.

Το τελευταίο τραγούδι της πρώτης πλευράς του βινυλίου ήταν το "The Crunge", το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε και αυτόνομα, ως single. Για την ακρίβεια ήταν b-side στο "D'yer Mak'er" που "βγήκε" τον Σεπτέμβριο του ιδίου έτους. Η μπάντα "τζαμάρει", ο John Bonham αρχίζει, ο John Paul Jones τον συνοδεύει στο μπάσο, ο Jimmy Page προσθέτει ένα (funky) riff και ο Robert Plant αρχίζει να τραγουδιά.

Κάπως έτσι "γεννήθηκε" το τραγούδι, με τον Jimmy Page να λέει σχετικά στο περιοδικό Guitar World το 1993:

«I played a Strat on that one - I wanted to get that tight James Brown feel. You have to listen closely, but you can hear me depressing a whammy bar at the end of each phrase. Bonzo started the groove on “The Crunge”, then Jonesy started playing that descending bass line and I just came in on the rhythm. You can really hear the fun we were having on “Houses” and “Physical Graffiti”. And you can also hear the dedication and commitment.»
