Charted: 39

Songfacts®:

  • Another solo hit for Robert Plant, the lyrics are very repetitive and find him heavily fixated on a particular tune, which carries this song. >>

  • Steve from Torrance, CaThis song creates such a magical, ethereal, summer-afternoon atmosphere that I could never grow tired of it, no matter how many times I hear it. I'm aware Plant is very contemptuous about his early-80s albums, but I think The Principle of Moments (1983) holds up very well after all these years. All the backing musicians (drummer Phil Collins, bassist Paul Martinez, keyboardist Jezz Woodroffe, and guitarist Robbie Blunt) make very strong contributions.
  • Roman from Modesto, CaPhil Collins on drums
  • Oldpink from New Castle, InNot very complex, definitely.
    This one will put you to sleep, make of that good or bad, depending on how you look at it.
