Songfacts®:

  • On The Yardbirds official site, bass player Chris Dreja says: "This is a song about depression, but even I don't really get that too much because we've Yardbirdized it to such an extent. It's just kind of a boogie-down, funk thing - a nice song to play for a live audience. I like the spatial quality of it." >>
