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.
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page under the name "The New Yardbirds", based on Page's previous band, The Yardbirds. The band formed when Jimmy Page (guitar) recruited Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound, Led Zeppelin are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock music. Show more ...
Measuring a summer s day, I only finds it slips away to grey,
The hours, they bring me pain.
*Tangerine, Tangerine, Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen, And now a thousand years between.
Thinking how it used to be, Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again? And I do.
