Immigrant Song lyrics question


Recommended Posts

Oh my God. This has got to be the most hilarious thread yet. :lol:

[but then again, I'm easily amused]

Jimmy really does need to release something new or we'll be discussing whether Robert sighed or sneezed at that little bridge-like section in some selected song.

That's gold. Most mis-heard lyrics ever?

The other Japanese singles of Trampled Under Foot, Black Dog, Misty Mountain are priceless as well. 

 

"Rise and shine, burning bread, dreams of you all through my head."😂

The correct lyrics have been available for a while now, seek and ye shall find. We are your overload. 🤭

I remember seeing similar lyrics printed on the 45 sleeve at my local DC record store around 1983-ish.  And since then I have always sung that one line as - I wanna go where there is rest and show.

Also, who really believes that that StH lyric really is - Our shadows taller than our souls.

It has always sounded to me like - I share an old story that I've told.

It's "our shadows taller than our souls". The song's lyrics are purposefully written in poetic language that is open to interpretation.

All that glitters is gold -- Robert Plant

This thread is absolute gold. Some of you really need to clean out your ears 🤣

Maybe it's just that I've been hearing these songs as long as I can remember, but I don't typically flub lyrics THIS bad...
