Episode 10: What do you mean you don’t like Zeppelin?!

Dan and Tony discuss going to the movies and 60s rock and roll, including:

  • the storytelling and (hacky?) subject matter in Pinball Wizard by The Who

  • In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly and whether lines get better the more times they are repeated

  • Piece of my Heart by Janis Joplin which has scared Dan into not wanting to listen to any more Janis Joplin in case everything else she’s ever done is bad

  • All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix which Dan actually liked

  • Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan which Tony sweepingly calls one of the greatest songs ever written by anyone

  • a cover of Robert Johnson’s Crossroads by Cream which demonstrate the evolution of blues to rock & roll

  • Sunshine of Your Love by Cream and Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf both of which Dan never realised were real songs

  • how tape-technology during the 60s affected drum recordings, brought up when by White Room by Cream

  • Dan and Tony’s own rendition of Touch Me by the Doors

  • Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin which is poorly written and only about fucking, yet Tony still likes a lot

  • drugs
