T he second single from the disturbing Shaken ‘N Stirred, this one didn’t chart. Probably freaked people out, but it’s far more indicative of the album than “Little By Little.” Personally, I admire Plant for shaking things up; he could have just as easily continued to crank out product. Instead, he recognized that music was changing and sought to change with it. The music is informed by rap, I suppose, though not as blatant as “Tall Cool One” (which I thought was terrible). While the B side is your typical “baby don’t go” bit, the A side has deeper implications, combining (in the subconscious gears of my unworkable mind) music’s omnipresence with Arthurian Legend. Is he making a statement about his own mythology? It would be pretty deep for a guy who writes songs about getting laid, but anything’s possible with Robert Plant.
