This new wave flavored track finds Caleb Followill singing about falling in love with a ghost. The song was inspired by Followill's wife, Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge, being convinced her LA hotel was haunted, He explained to Q magazine:
"She stayed in this hotel in Los Angeles. This is going to sound weird and a lot of people will roll their eyes, but she felt like it was haunted. When she tells the story, it's the scariest thing. So I took that and turned it into a love story. What if there was this ghost and either this ghost loves you, or you loved the ghost?"
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
