Even though it's about as close to "Pop" music as Zep ever got, Bonzo still makes his presence felt.

Just what I need to get over the weather induced doldrums this cold wet Wednesday morning.  This one always gets me up- Thanks Bill!

 That is funny...I had a good friend who played The Wall every night for at least a year as well..drove me crazy ! We worked on a freight doc and he'd blast it from his boom box.(cassette tape) It irritated the hell out of some of the older folks working with us.  RIP Milne Truck Lines  The_Enemy wrote:

I'm with ya.  There's a lot of music I burned out on during the 70s that I'm starting to get back into.

Pink Floyd would be on that list.  When The Wall came out, I heard that album nearly everyday for a year following.

When this song came on the radio for the first time a friend of mine said,"This is a clear indication that some bands can do ANYTHING and it will be on the radio"  It has grown on me all these years later.  {#Ask}

Two bars walk into Jimmy Page.
The first says "Hey, Jimmy! So glad to be in your music."
The second says "Hey, yeah. Me too!"
Jimmy says "Well, glad to see you two are in a chord."

I think RP has a slight issue with the version of the song. There's a huge gap/jump early on in the song? Am I imagining this?

Songwriters do pay homage to prior work by other artists with occasional deliberate references to that work. In this case Sting has mentioned that Gene Pitney's Every Breath I Take (1961) played a role in the inspiration for his song. Quite possibly Pitney's song played some role in this one too, though Zep has been less forthright in listing their inspirations.

In any case I am not one of those who believe in the widespread plagiarism claimed by a few commenters on these boards any time there's a similarity of tone, riff, or line, between two songs. As you and others have pointed out in cases of actual plagiarism there is a lawsuit.

 
True, when re-reading your post it is clearer that you were not making such an assertion.  I guess it was seeing so many allegations of plagiarism in the song comments that had me conditioned to think that there was another such allegation.  It seems that some folks seem to misunderstand the ideas of "homage" or "references" in music, you are not among them.
