Dazed and Confused

All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”

 - Winnie-the-Pooh, as related by A. A. Milne
(18 Jan 1882 - 31 Jan 1956)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   Today's theme is prompted by the prevailing state of my mind for the past couple of months. Apparently it happens about this same time every year.  

BONUS #1 - Dazed and Confused - Jake Holmes, June 1967 (no video)

BONUS #2 - Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin, Supershow, 1969


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazed_and_Confused_%28song%29: 

"Dazed and Confused" is a song originally written and performed by Jake Holmes. It was covered by the Yardbirds, and later reworked by Led Zeppelin who hold a separate copyright on the song.[1]

Singer-songwriter Jake Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound" of Jake Holmes, released in June 1967. Like the other tracks on the album, the song does not include any drums. It was recorded entirely with the trio of Holmes on guitar, keyboard and vocals, Ted Irwin on guitar and Rick Randle on bass.[2][3] The song has been incorrectly labelled as a tale about a bad acid trip. Holmes himself has confirmed that this is not the case. In 2001 he gave an interview to Shindig! magazine and said this about "Dazed and Confused":

I never took acid. I smoked grass and tripped on it, but I never took acid. I was afraid to take it. The song's about a girl who hasn't decided whether she wants to stay with me or not. It's pretty much one of those love songs.[4]

In June 2010, Jake Holmes sued Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for copyright infringement, claiming to have written and recorded "Dazed and Confused" two years before it appeared on Led Zeppelin's debut album. In court documents Holmes cited a 1967 copyright registration for "Dazed and Confused" which was renewed in 1995.[5] This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.[6]

..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

BONUS VALENTINE CROCHET PATTERN (Wal, you wouldn't want a confusing pattern, would ja? ):

Linda Cyr's Tree Hearts - This is one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:

http://nnhs65.com/12-05-11-NNHS-The-First-Noel.html
 

     It's quite pretty made with worsted weight yarn, but when worked with two strands of #10 crochet thread held together using a size B crochet hook, it creates a very elegant heart - and as suitable for Valentine's Day as for Christmas!

   The design works up quickly. It takes me about an hour a heart - and I am a super-slow crocheter (despite six decades of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.

 
 


BONUS VALENTINE KNIT PATTERN:

Nazanin S. Fard's Valentine Heart Doily - "Knit this beauty for Valentine’s Day, but enjoy it any time of the year! The elegant spiral center is surrounded by a border of lacy eyelet hearts and finished with delicate chain scallops at the edge."


BONUS DAZED RECIPE:

Glazed, Dazed Chick-Sticks  


FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/02/19:

Woman: Do you love me?

Man: Yes, dear.

Woman: Would you die for me?

Man: No... mine is an undying love.

Dazed and Confused

Written and recorded by Jake Holmes, 1967
 (b. 28 Dec 1939)

Recorded by Led Zeppelin, 1969


Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
