Black Dog


Recommended Posts

More likely about one of Robert's ex-gfs, if it is about that. I think your mind is too clean though:

"Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move

Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove

Ah, ah, child, way you shake that thing

Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting

Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way

Watch your honey drip, can't keep away"

Pretty clear to me that he wants to get into her pants.

"Dreams of you all through my head"

He can't get her off his mind.

"Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby

Tell me that you'll do me now

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby

Woman won't you do me now"

Pretty self explanatory.

"Spent my money, took my car

Started tellin' her friends she gonna be a star"

Maybe they get together? But it turns out she is a real *****. "Started tellin' her friends she gonna be a star" makes me wonder if maybe it's about groupies or girls who want to get close to the band just because they are rich/famous?

I've read something about a dog wandering around the studio in the time of recording the song, but not sure about credibility of the info.

Ross Halfin has pictures of a visit to Hedley Grange (where they recorded IV), with Jimmy Page and a Black Dog......

The title is about a 19-year-old black labrador who befriended the band while they were recording at Headley Grange. The song is about something completely different - basically love, sex, and thinking too fast about girlfriends when you're young. Or summit like that. :D
