Whole Lotta Love Lyrics
I’m gonna send you back to schoolin’,
Way down inside, honey you need it,
I’m gonna give you my love,
I’m gonna give you my love.
Wanna whole lotta love?
Wanna whole lotta love?
Wanna whole lotta...

This song is obviously very sexual in nature. "Way down inside" is a sort of double meaning. The quite literal act of him being inside her, but also the gutful and raw lustful emotion. The song is full of double meanings and innuendo. Even at the end where he sings "I wanna be your backdoor man" can mean he either wants to put it in her backdoor, or he's the secret lover in an affair of some sorts.

Hey this mighty Zeppelin song could also be about preparing and empowering the young man's sexuality. For to experience sex and love between a male and a female. In a time that many of ''The Femenists'' didn't and still don't want to hear that noise about ''ecstasy moaning''. Where The Woman is being screWed and loved by The Man with a ''Whole Lotta Love''

It's about how you interrupt it but it's definitely about sex and a whole lotta sex and love.

Replace every instance of the word "love" with "dick.'
There's the meaning. It's too blatant to not be intentional.

WOW, what a popular song by LED ZEPPELIN during the SEXUAL REVOLUTION of the 60's and 70's that turned the ''liberal conservitive'' teenage movement to a ''whole lotta love''. This was used and interpreted in two ways by weighting and measureing both sides of the brain, but giving the little brain a big ego that needs to have power to measure and weight itself against the BIG BRAIN that the little one needs to feel big enough to think about using every inch of his brain to ''DIG IT'' in and out of the ''whole lotta love'' he found. This song is so relevant even today to some that feels i'am still the greatest like you see in our proud politicians these days that got loosend up by a charged up sexual ''POLITICAL GLAMOUR'' used to get their rocks off and to remind us that we are still sexually potent to get back to rock and roll for a ''Whole Lotta Love''.

It's about when I was doin a fifteen year old after being in the back door and neither of us got off. I ripped the rubber off, and turned her over -- she asked didn't I wanna make it to the bed and I said no, I wanted a whole lotta love, and right now. I eventually got her knees up to her ears and we went for about a half hour -- slow and deep, then shallow and fast, back and forth. She could feel me bumping her cervix and when I came and we both hoped she'd got pregnant. Fifty years later we both agree it was the best ever -- it was truly a whole lotta love, but only about six inches and six orgasms apiece, absolutely amazing and the song always replays that event in our minds.

This song fucks you with its sound, not just the lyrics and Robert Plant's sexxxy voice. The bass line is like the rhythm of the couple moving together, the drums are the balls and tits bouncing up and down, the guitar of Jimmy Page is thrusting and moving inside like a huge magnificent electric penis. Like donkey dick or horse cock Led Zep together makes sound a sound the IS the sound of the best fuck of you'd life. Maybe you're fifteen and lifting up your plaid uniform skirt while a big rude man is bracing you against a brick wall. Maybe you're on the beach naked fucking someone you just met. Maybe you are fucking the love of your life for the very first time and he is a dirty nasty sexual athlete who can go for hours. You want it and he can give you A Whole Lot of Love, way down inside.

The song has a definite double meaning, it talks about "LOVE" however there is the war connotation. It is like a defiant chant of let's get together in war. He's saying he really wants to kick ass. Great song for US marines!

its obvioulsy about sex but not just that
i mean he is trying t have sex with someone that has been hurt before thats the wierd noises from like an hauted house full of bad memories that can be erased or at least overcome with a new renewing experience he knows that and insists for her to give love one more chance
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Its obviously about making love, but musically, its Jimmys' intrepretation of an acid trip,(and he absolutely nails it too!).Zeps answer to the Beatles' Revolution #9,off the White album.
Actually, though he is uncredited, the song is based on a Willie Dixon song. Years later, Zeppelin settled out of court for this and a couple of other songs copied from Dixon. Dixon also wrote (in the early 1950s) "I Just Want To Make Love to You", covered by Foghat and "Aint Superstitous" coverd by the Jeff Beck Group.
