Rayman’s Song of the Day-D’yer Mak’er by Led Zeppelin [AUDIO]
This song was meant to imitate Reggae and its “dub” derivative emerging from Jamaica in the early ’70s. Bonham’s inability to replicate a Reggae beat on his drums, however, turned the song into an odd melange of what sounded like ’50s doo-wop and reggae. This song and “The Crunge” are considered the two “joke” songs on the album.
The distinctive drum sound was created by placing 3 microphones a good distance away from John Bonham’s drums.
