This is the opening track of Synthetica, the fifth studio album to be released by Canadian indie rock band Metric. According to guitarist James Shaw, the first sound that can he heard, a pulsating, grimy throb, is "the foundation of the album." He said: "Oddly enough, it's actually not a synthesizer. It's a '60s organ played through a homemade pedal dreamed up by a local wizard who posted an ad on Craiglist."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
"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.
