Song of the Day - "Thank You"
Led Zeppelin could certainly deliver the heavy metal thunder, but what makes the quartet the gold standard for hard rock is that they could do so much more. Case in point: “Thank You,” from the band's second album. The first song for which frontman Robert Plant wrote all the lyrics (as a tribute to his wife, Maureen), the track frames his delicate vocals with Jimmy Page's acoustic guitar and scene-stealing Hammond organ work from John Paul Jones ... and caps things off with a false ending. Page and Plant revisited the song in the mid-1990s on their NO QUARTER collaboration, and of course it's a Thanksgiving perennial. Most recently “Thank You” has been heard on commercials for HBO’s “Sharp Objects,” and we'll take that as a cue to make it our Song of the Day.
