http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stairway_to_Heaven

Quote: Encompassing heavy metal, folk, pure rock & roll, and blues, Led Zeppelin's untitled fourth album is a monolithic record, defining not only Led Zeppelin but the sound and style of '70s hard rock. Expanding on the breakthroughs of III, Zeppelin fuse their majestic hard rock with a mystical, rural English folk that gives the record an epic scope.

Even at its most basic -- the muscular, traditionalist "Rock and Roll" -- the album has a grand sense of drama, which is only deepened by Robert Plant's burgeoning obsession with mythology, religion, and the occult.

Plant's mysticism comes to a head on the eerie folk ballad "The Battle of Evermore," a mandolin-driven song with haunting vocals from Sandy Denny, and on the epic "Stairway to Heaven."

Of all of Zeppelin's songs, "Stairway to Heaven" is the most famous, and not unjustly. Building from a simple fingerpicked acoustic guitar to a storming torrent of guitar riffs and solos, it encapsulates the entire album in one song.

Which, of course, isn't discounting the rest of the album. "Going to California" is the group's best folk song, and the rockers are endlessly inventive, whether it's the complex, multi-layered "Black Dog," the pounding hippie satire "Misty Mountain Hop," or the funky riffs of "Four Sticks."

But the closer, "When the Levee Breaks," is the one song truly equal to "Stairway," helping give IV the feeling of an epic. An apocalyptic slice of urban blues, "When the Levee Breaks" is as forceful and frightening as Zeppelin ever got, and its seismic rhythms and layered dynamics illustrate why none of their imitators could ever equal them.

I have to agree, best rock song ever and possibly beats any song from any other genre! I hope Robert finds his way back here before too long, but I know it's been a mad busy year for him.

Everyone has their take on how the Bonham half-time shuffle should be played. This is from the man himself. John Bonham's drum track on Led Zeppelin's Fool in the Rain.




Studio version.

Has so much more depth and meaning to me. I enjoy Led Zep and there are many great songs. But this has more impact on me, when I first heard it and still does to this day, every morning. Ralph Vaughan Williams was a master.

'The Lark Ascending', inspired by a poem of the same name by George Meredith, was begun shortly before the outbreak of the First World War but not completed until Vaughan Williams returned from active service in France. This performance is by Nicola Benedetti with the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrew Litton.

In your humble opinion.
There was a lot of talent on the radio between 63-72, hard for me to pick the best.
I saw Zep at Madison Square Garden in 71 I think it was, (a couple of foggy decades back then).
My friends and I used a great line-cutting gimmick, ( the line had about 500 people in it, with a crosswalk/break in it.)
We went to a Deli and bought soda and chips for the group we cut into, at the break, and the pair behind them. Worked like a charm !

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

My two favorite rock bands/musical groups are Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath...

Imo Led Zeppelins best song (out of so many others) is Stairway To Heaven - 1971...

Imo Black Sabbaths best song (out of so many others) is Heaven And Hell - 1980...

Both songs are epic and profoundly panoramic as they build towards similar instrumental intensities and then fade away with melodic whispers and Ozzy Osbourne isnt singing this Black Sabbath song its Ronnie James Dio...

Stairway To Heaven currently has around 200,000,000 You Tube views...

An astounding number of views and listens for a 43 year old song...

That no other musical group has ever equaled or surpassed...

Quote: Led Zeppelin are widely considered one of the most successful, innovative and influential rock groups in history.

They are one of the best-selling music artists in the history of audio recording; various sources estimate the group's record sales at 200 to 300 million units worldwide. With 111.5 million RIAA-certified units, they are the second-best-selling band in the United States.

Each of their nine studio albums placed on the Billboard Top 10 and six reached the number-one spot.

Rolling Stone magazine described them as "the heaviest band of all time", "the biggest band of the '70s" and "unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history".

They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995;

The museum's biography of the band states that they were "as influential in that decade [the 1970s] as the Beatles were in the prior one".

I can't say that I like the song. The Lego Biere song is the best song ever.

Biere.
