Ultimate blues song, ultimate cruise song, and ultimate booze song

the best

6 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

Definitely blues, stolen outright from "You Need Love", written by Willie Dixon and recorded by Muddy Waters.

Just because some lyrics were stolen from a blues track, doesn't make it blues. - MontyPython

@visitor: ha, I also know that this song is a brutal rip off - one of their numerous rip offs. - Metal_Treasure

I wouldn't call it blues, more of a hard rock track, but it's a great song no doubt! - MontyPython

@MontyPython - Led Zepp didn't steal only some lyrics but also the music. - Metal_Treasure
