Katt's current selection is:
D'yer maker
by Led Zeppelin
It only took me 44 years to discover this song. Which is perfectly fine since I am the queen of procrastinating everything. Anyway, this song is an earworm and I keep hearing it in my mind day and night. No, I'm not complaining. I also think it is such a perfect description of the temporary madness that is called falling in love.
Other than that, here's a lil something that I snipped (is that correct English?) from Rolling Stone "The Title of 'D'yer Mak'er' Is Based on an Old Cockney Joke About Jamaica
THE BACKSTORY: Many fans think the title of this Houses of the Holy tune is pronounced
"Dire Maker"; in fact, you're supposed to say it more like the name of the Caribbean country.
THE TRUTH: Plant has confirmed that the title "D'yer Mak'er" does, in fact, come from a rusty bit of Cockney humor, which usually goes something like this:
Cockney Man 1: My wife is going on holiday.
Cockney Man 2: D'yer make 'er? ["Jamaica," but pronounced quickly so that it sounds just like "Did you make her?"]
Cockney Man 1: No, she's going on her own accord.
The sly allusion to Jamaica made sense for the song: "D'yer Mak'er" is Zeppelin's reggae move."
1973 - United Kingdom

I like almost any kind of music,but if you dragged me in my ears around the block and insisted that I'd tell you what I prefer, I would have to say rock.. I live in Sweden, amongst the penguins and polar bears.
