"Come with Me" is a song recorded by the American rapper Puff Daddy, featuring English guitarist Jimmy Page, from the soundtrack to the 1998 film, Godzilla. The song recreates the 1975 Led Zeppelin song "Kashmir". Jimmy Page and producer Tom Morello also supplied live guitar parts (Morello also played bass on the song). The song also features heavy orchestral elements. It reached number two in the United Kingdom, number three in New Zealand and number four in the United States, and it became a top-five hit in several European countries, including Austria, Finland, Germany, Poland and Switzerland. A music video, directed by Howard Greenhalgh featuring both Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page, was made for the song.
