Tangerine (3:10)

Cover of Led Zeppelin III

From Led Zeppelin III and 47 other releases

Jimmy Page wrote this and first recorded it when he was with still with The Yardbirds.

This was the second-to-last Zeppelin song Jimmy Page wrote without any input from Robert Plant, the other being Bron-Yr-Aur. The song is about a love affair.

The song was also to be featured on the hit FOX television show “Glee.” But Jimmy Page forbade them to use any of their songs. Page said he had great pleasure in doing so.

Led Zeppelin played this during acoustic sets on their early tours.

This was used at the end of the 2000 movie Almost Famous in a scene where a bus drives away.

    It's hard to choose a favorite from this band, but for me it is this one.

    Listening to "Led Zeppelin III" released on October 5, 1970. Many of the songs featured on the album were conceived in mid-1970 at Bron-Yr-Aur, an 18th-century cottage in Gwynedd, Wales, on a hilltop overlooking the Dyfi Valley, three miles north of the market town Machynlleth. This set the tone for this masterpiece of music. No electric or running water, Page & Plant where roughing it(LOL), they only had a staff of 7. Song written by Page.

    I remember this song as a sad goodbye to the relationship to my only true loving girlfriend of my life. Those where the days...

    It's a great song, but is it just me, or does it really sound like Stairway-lite?
