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

 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:

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.

A guy walks into a bar with a piano entertainer, sits down and orders a beer. The piano player's monkey soon jumps on the bar and urinates in the guy's beer. The guy yells to the piano player, "Hey, do you know your monkey just peed in my beer?" The piano player says, "No, but if you hum a few bars, I might remember it!"

I'm glad someone finally said it. This band and other pop bands have polluted the minds of young people all over the world for too long. Say no to drugs, kids, and say yes to jesus. And yes, put some clothes on. Frigging punk-rappers, or whatever it is you call yourself.

Love this song!!!!!!!!!! as well as the entire album ..........not sure what stations the rest of you are listening to but I never listened to any radio that played the same tunes over and over or a ltd selection of just 70's & 80's rock so getting sick of some music, sorry can't relate.
RP is the best I have ever heard yet w/ that being said -  realized well b4 listening to this station - the talent of musicians & groups.  However, I never went by what anyone else was listening to, or, what was "popular" just what I liked & appreciated.

I had to stop listening to Zeppelin for years. I got so burned out on every song they did because the "classic rock" stations play them CONSTANTLY. After years of Zeppelin self-denial, I've started listening again. You know, they're pretty good. There is a reason they're so popular. Now I just don't listen to "classic rock" stations any more. :)
 
I agree 100%.  I got so sick of the Zep (whom I've always liked) that I stopped listening.  Since tuning in to RP, I've realized not only are they "pretty good", they are ALL excellent musicians and were very, very innovative.  They deserve to be one of the pillars of rock.  Having said this, however, I'm still sick of this song.

I agree. Not a big fan of Zep, but this is a great song.

Anybody else think the cover art looks like kiddie porn on acid?
 
From Wiki:

The cover art for Houses of the Holy was inspired by the ending of Arthur C. Clarke's novel Childhood's End.<1> (The ending involves several hundred million naked children, only slightly and physically resembling the human race in basic forms). It is a collage of several photographs which were taken at the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland, by Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis. This location was chosen ahead of an alternative one in Peru which was being considered.<1>

The two children who modelled for the cover were siblings Stefan and Samanatha Gates.<2> The photoshoot was a frustrating affair over the course of ten days. Shooting was done first thing in the morning and at sunset in order to capture the light at dawn and dusk, but the desired effect was never achieved due to constant rain and clouds. The photos of the two children were taken in black and white and were multi-printed to create the effect of 11 individuals that can be seen on the album cover. The results of the shoot were less than satisfactory, but some accidental tinting effects in post-production created an unexpectedly striking album cover.<1> The inner sleeve photograph was taken at Dunluce Castle near to the Causeway.

Like Led Zeppelin's fourth album, neither the band's name nor the album title was printed on the sleeve. However, manager Peter Grant did allow Atlantic Records to add a wrap-around band to UK copies of the sleeve that had to be broken or slid off to access the record.<1> This hid the children's buttocks from general display, but still the album was either banned or unavailable in some parts of the Southern United States for several years.<3><4>

The first CD release of the album in the 1980s did have the title logos printed on the cover itself.<1>

In 1974, the album was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of best album package. The cover was rated #6 on VH1's 50 Greatest Album Covers in 2003.

Jimmy Page has stated that the album cover was actually the second version submitted by Hipgnosis. The first, by artist Storm Thorgerson, featured an electric green tennis court with a tennis racquet on it. Furious that Thorgerson was implying their music sounded like a "racket", the band fired him and hired Powell in his place.<5> Thorgerson did, however, go on to produce the album artwork for Led Zeppelin's subsequent albums Presence and In Through the Out Door.
