My music playlist for today (April 26, 2012 edition)

If the power of Robert Plant‘s singing could be described in analogies …

Robert Plant

It hits you like a runaway Mack truck that’s on a steep downhill slope with no emergency ramps.

It packs the wallop of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman.  Combined.  In the primes of their careers.

It makes Chuck Norris look like one of those guys on the beach getting sand kicked in his face before deciding to get into that Charles Atlas bodybuilding program.

If there were a way to harness its raw energy, you might be able to light up a small town for a night.  Yeah, this one’s a bit too cliche.  I’ll try to do better on the next one.

It’s like that 2012 Shelby Mustang GT 1000 coupe — as in a 1,000-horsepower beauty that puts you way back in the seat for one whale of a ride and tests those cushions you’re sitting on.

Okay, maybe I’m getting a bit out of control here, but I could go on.  Don’t think of Robert Plant just as a singer and songwriter and blues harp player from a classic rock band that had the initials LZ.  Take a look at what he’s done since then, and maybe even a touch before.

There’s enough power in him just in what he’s done in his solo work, or with his creations since then, to knock us all over.

My cowboy hat’s off to you, Robert!

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
