Led Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love



This blistering track from Led Zeppelin's second album contains some of Robert Plant's most lascivious lyrics, culled from the blues. It's not poetry, but he gets his point across quite effectively, letting the girl know that he's yearning, and ready to give her all of his love - every inch.

Plant's lyrics are based on a 1962 Muddy Waters song written by Willie Dixon called "You Need Love," where Waters sings: I ain't foolin', you need schoolin' Baby, you know you need coolin' Woman, way down inside The band reached an agreement with Dixon, who used the settlement money to set up a program providing instruments for schools. The 1966 Small Faces song "You Need Loving" also coped from Dixon's song, and those lyrics are more similar to what Plant used. In that one, Steve Marriott sings: I ain't foolin', woman you need coolin' I'm gonna send you, right back to schoolin' Way down inside your heart, woman You need lovin'
