Fool in the rain by Led Zeppelin

Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining Like a star that can't wait for the night
I hate to think I've been blinded baby Why can't I see you tonight? And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin' And the thrill of your touch gives me fright And I'm shaking so much, really yearning Why don't you show up, make it all right? Yeah, it's all right. And if you promised you'd love so completely and you said you would always be true You swore that you would never leave me, baby: What ever happened to you? And you thought it was only in movies As you wish all your dreams would come true It ain't the first time believe me, baby I'm standin here feeling blue Yeah I'm blue Now I will stand in the rain on the corner I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown Another ten minutes no longer And then I'm turning around The clock on the wall's moving slower My heart it sinks to the ground And the storm that I thought would blow over Clouds the light of the love that I found Now my body is starting to quiver And the palms of my hands getting wet I've got no reason to doubt you baby, It's all a terrible mess I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah Light of the love that I found...
I know I promised not to post any Led Zeppelin but... only this one. Because it is about... love! we need love, love is all we need/ love is the answer... and "that bass solo makes LIFE worth it". as PennybagDarrell" said at Youtube. In 2007 Robert Plant sang this song with Eddie Vedder at Chicago but the sound of the video is terrible. I did a huge mistake at the post below. I was kinda sleeping, cause I did it in the middle of the night, and wrote "guess" instead of "guest" and it is in the title... I corrected but now it's too late. Maybe it was a freudian-sleep cause I was thinking "guess who will be the guest?". Have a great Sunday!
Update: June, 1
Whenever I heard what happens at 2.25 I thought: They heard Brazilian samba. It's impossible they didn't.
I finally did the search today. They did!
"Bass player John Paul Jones and vocalist Robert Plant developed the idea for the samba beat from watching the 1978 FIFA World Cup tournament in Argentina.[1] Guitarist Jimmy Page used an MXR Blue Box effect pedal during the solo to produce the octave sound."
It's good. Nice performance.
But you have no idea what it is to be next to a samba school battery. Body, mind and soul are touched.
