I've been doing this for well over a year now and I've never had a Zepplin song show up before that I can remember even though I have the entire catalog downloaded. I'm not even a Zep fan, although I grew up during their heyday. In fact I never owned one of their albums (ask your parents what that is) until they closed The Wherehouse stores in San Diego a few years ago and they had this big clearance sale with this box set marked down to $49 and I figured, 'what the hell'.
Later I discovered that "A big legged woman ain’t got no soul."
I did not know that.
