Radio 82, side A, track 12: “Rock And Roll” by Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin - Rock and RollOh, Led Zeppelin, it’s been a long time since I’ve heard this one.  Although I feel pretty confident that I’ve heard that opening riff on a commercial or three selling vacations or cars or lite beer, maybe even all three at once.  Honestly, and this is embarrassing, but I don’t know that I knew it was you who sang this, Led Zeppelin.  Whatever.  I’ve made it clear that I’m actually pretty uninformed about music even though this is ostensibly a music blog.  I do appreciate it more, though, now that I understand that it’s about you proving you could still rock and that it’s a love letter to the early rock and roll from the ’50s.  I think you nailed it on both, Led Zeppelin.  It might also be about sex.  And I’m sure you nailed it there, too.
