Certain Songs #905: Led Zeppelin – “Dancing Days”

Album: Houses of The Holy
Year: 1973

Houses of the Holy was a weird album.

Or at least to me, it’s always been a weird album. And so I’ve always kinda underrated it. Part of it was that it had the first two Led Zeppelin songs I ever really heard: “Over The Hills and Far Away” and “Dy’er Maker.” It also had couple of slow ones that took me forever to warm up to (and I’ve never quite got “The Rain Song”), as well as songs with weird rhythms, insanely high-pitched vocals and just about anything except for a straight-out pile-driving riff song like “Whole Lotta Love,” “Out on the Tiles” or “Black Dog.”
