I haven't heard the explosive version yet, but how exactly different is it? Doesn't it just add an explosion at the end?

Yes, about 30 seconds of explosion are added to the end but the rest is the same

Worst rip-off in history. Did nothing for the song, but made sure people bought the single.

Oh wait, that sounds like quite a good description of most commercial maxi-single releases...

I love Carouselambra, if for no other reason than that I have absolutely no idea what any of the lyrics are.

Oh sure - Google told me what Robert Plant was singing, technically, but I couldn't reconcile the words with what I was hearing from the song itself.

That alone deserves a medal of some kind.
