Great Zep tune :)
@Zoso Agreed! :)
Trivia-Page says the correct pronunciation of the title of the song is jamaica...as in "Jamaica? -No-I didn't even kiss her" lol:). that is his joke- not mine. I really want to make that clear. (haha)
@curtywyshart I'm baffled, that's incredibly clever! Never again will I struggle to pronounce it :) Hahaha too bad it's not yours, it's quite funny.
I know-I've pronounced it 6 ways from Sunday until I heard that story.
@curtywyshart Well I thank you profusely! I used to pronounce it with a sort of French twist, like 'dey-eer mer-keer', just for fun because I was clueless!
I used that one the most.
@curtywyshart Ah we think alike!
@curtywyshart Hah! I haven't heard that one, according to Wikipedia the joke from which the title comes goes like this: "-My wife's gone to the West Indies. -Jamaica? -No, she went of her own accord."
Anyway, great song with a puzzling title. :)
311 does a pretty excellent cover of this track on the 311 Day dvd.
@beastchun I'll check it out, thanks :)
@carolinedorgan It does have a summer feel to it, doesn't it? @onelovepictures I know right! Houses Of The Holy is such an amazing album, so many amazing songs like this one!
such and amazing album! You have great taste!!
@onelovepictures Thank you. Likewise, my friend!
Like this led zep song a lot. I am rejamming it.
@jakob1010 That makes two of us. Go ahead :)
Great tune. Very beachy :D In my case, it's one of those songs that I'd heard, and liked, but didn't know where it came from. Probably heard a cover of this or something, somewhere. Thanks for the post!
