This is the title track of the sixth album by the American rock band Plain White T's. The collection of the songs is intended to evoke the feeling of awe and the yearning for adventure remembered from youth.
Frontman Tom Higgenson explained in an interview with the Chicago Tribune the original inspiration for the album's concept. "We were in Vegas last year around Valentine's Day and saw the Cirque du Soleil show 'O.' The show had clowns, pirates and a bunch of crazy stuff and I walked out thinking 'I've got a great idea for our next album.' From that point on, my mind went wild."
Higgenson told Alternative Press magazine: "Once I played this song for the band, they understood my crazy concept for this album. The album is all about looking back on the good old days - when life was simple. The days before we had responsibility. The days when we lived in the moment. The days of our youth. My big idea is that maybe with some good music to inspire us and the use of our own imaginations, we can recapture a bit of that wonder. Maybe, just maybe, even if only for a moment, we can all be young again."
"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.
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
