Hey hey mama said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove…
Such a cool start, followed by what arguably is one of the best Jimmy Page riffs. One of my favorite Zep riffs, together with “Whole Lotta Love”!
Both will likely be stuck in my head for the rest of the day but, hey, it could be much worse like some Modern Talking crap – dang it, cheri, cheri, lady, there I said it! 🙂
