#RockClassics & #MetalWeekend - Whole Lotta Love


Hi,

for today's #RockClassics by @uwelang and #MetalWeekend by @detlev, I would like to go to one of my favourite songs that was released in 1969, the greatest year in music for me.

The song is Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin, and it is simply amazing. Just listen to it, loud! It has so much power and so much tension.



It was inspired by a Muddy Waters song, that it is pure R&B, You need love. Love, just the way love is spelled in this song, it is stunning.



There are also some pretty decent covers for it, one from Hollywood Vampires, the mega band made of so many stars. The video is also worth watching.

I like the version from Santana and Chris Cornell, where the voice of Chris can touch some sounds that only Robert Plant did. Gorgeous!



I will close with one of the sexiest version of this song, the one from Tina Turner, which brings so much soul in it.

Enjoy listening!

Like love itself. Love is amazing. Love is powerful. But it has tension (rather pain) only when it is one-sided (unrequited).

I think there were a few bands that 'benefited' from Muddy Waters at the time - including the Stones. As far as this song is concerned, it is of course very difficult to compete with Page and Plant in top form, although I think the interpretation by the Hollywood Vampires is extremely well done.


Ich glaube, es gab damals einige Bands, die von Muddy Waters ‚profitiert‘ haben - unter anderem die Stones. Was diesen Song betrifft, ist es natürlich ganz schwer gegen Page und Plant in Hochform anzukommen, obwohl ich die Interpretation von den Hollywood Vampires für überaus gelungen halte.
