I honestly have nothing to say
I think the nice weather has tapped by creativity/writing abilities. I have nothing to say about anything. Are other bloggers being affected like this? I note that on TwinsTerritory the amount of writing has seriously dropped off, my good buddy The Oracle of Cheese is taking a bit of a breather, Cheer or Die hasn't written anything for a couple of days, and Twins Chatter has been silent for a couple of weeks. Gleeman didn't even write anything today. Something is in the water, I guess.
Hmmm ... if you've got a minute you should stop over at Stick and Ball Guy's site and welcome him back from his honeymoon. I'll be doing that later on. Hawaii sure would be nice to visit.
Well, I'll probably write something around lunch. I've been planning on a new "Songs for a Desert Island" selection (the others can be found in music). This new selection will be by Led Zeppelin, but I would be surprised if anyone could guess which song is my favorite Zep song.

I probably knew this way back in the day, but have forgotten since then. Ramble On perhaps?

Nope. Close. It is an early Zeppelin song.

I don't know about your fave Zep song Shane, but mine is Dazed and Confused.
Perhaps they ought to pump that song into the house chamber in St. Paul.

Dazed and Confused ... I've never been too fond of that one. A little dark for my taste. However, I am in favor of pumping that into the House chamber, if only to torture them until they pass a stadium bill.

It is going to upset me that I once knew this, and now have forgotten. I seem to recall something off Led Zeppelin III. How about Immigrant Song or Bron Yr Aur Stomp? I know that you especially like Immigrant Song, but I do not know if that qualifies as your favorite.
I also remember a conversation we had back in college regarding the three songs that changed your life. I remember one being Sweet Home Alabama (still the greatest song in the history of rock and roll by the greatest Southern band of all time) and the other being Changes by David Bowie. What was the third?

Yes, very good Curt. This is the third song. And you will kick yourself. It is not off of Zeppelin III.

Whay does Black Dog stick in my mind so much? Is this it?
I don't think it is anything off Led Zeppelin I; I know you like the blues, but I don't see "the third song" on that album. I already tried Ramble On, Immigrant Song, and Bron Yr Aur Stomp. I doubt that you would consider Houses of the Holy "early Zep," so I will go with Black Dog of the Zoso album, as I think "Stairway to Heaven" is too mainstream of a pick.
Do you remember the one song that changed my life (or at least completely changed my musical tastes)? You should as you played it for me back in freshman year, when you still lived over at Erickson?

You are so close, Curt. You are right, it isn't on Led Zeppelin I and I don't consider Houses of the Holy, or the untitled album for that matter, to be "early."
Wasn't your big song "Rock and Roll"? I seem to recall you hearing that on the radio and suddenly seeing the light. If not that then I would think it is "Over the Hills and Far Away." One of those two.

In My Time of Dying is where it is at.

Good one, SBG. I love that song. It is definitely up there.

"Hot Dog"; I love that rockabilly music, which Robert Plant enjoyed.
