The American singer Laura Branigan has a song named "Down like a rock." I was wondering what part of speech is "like" in the title of the song? Is it a preposition or adverb? Thank you!

Is the phrase above an adverb one and the "Down" a head of the phrase?

Is the phrase above an adverb one and the "Down" a head of the phrase?

It's an adverb, so it's the head of its own AdvP. 'like' is the head of the following PP.
