About "Big Log"

"Big Log" is a song by English recording artist Robert Plant. The first single from his second solo album, The Principle of Moments (1983), it became his first top 40 solo hit, peaking at No.11 on the UK Singles Chart and No.20 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song also reached No.6 on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. Neither of the words in the title appears in the lyrics."I was messing about with the TR-808 drum machine and came up with the drum pattern and hand claps," recalled cowriter Jezz Woodroffe. "Robbie (Blunt, guitarist) arrived, liked the groove, and very quickly we had the main chords. The middle eight came from my Godwin string synth machine, and Robbie came up with the haunting theme. 'Big Log' was written in the middle of winter. We'd run out of fuel for the fire. We found the remains of an old tree lying outside, which was about 15 feet long, but had nothing to cut it with. So we put one end in the fire and slowly burnt it, till it was hollow."Cash Box compared the synthesized drums and claps to Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" and praised Plant's vocal.Bassist Viktor Krauss covered "Big Log" on his 2004 album Far from Enough. Krauss' sister Alison – who recorded Raising Sand with Plant three years later – sang lead vocals.The song is featured in Grand Theft Auto V, on the in-game Los Santos Rock Radio station.
