  1. Well, I bought The Song Remains the Same the other day, so I'm in a led frenzy again, so because i have no life, I am going to post popular songs from early days, then latter days, then im going to compare the two and figure out which zeppelin song is the most liked. Adieu.
     
  2. Hmm...I'm predicting the future....and I see a forecoming of thread movage to misc. :)

    Why did you think this was OT????

    I said "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" but my absolute favorite Zeppelin song is their version of "Travelling Riverside Blues" from the BBC sessions.
     
  5. Actually, The Ocean is going to be in my latter day poll, this only covers their first 4 albums

    'trb' is pretty cool, but after decades of worship one wonders if it would have been as amazing to virgin ears. i like the other semi-missing tune found on disc one of the two-disc release after the four-disc compendium/crop circles thingie (the two discs were everything else), but can't remember the name (think its "we're gonna groove").

    anyway, i have fond memories of a room full of drunk musicians (guitar players and drummers included) singing the entire bass line to the lemon song - out loud and note for note to the very end - because it had come on randomly. that's pretty awesome when people, even those other than bass heads, will memorize an entire walking line like that - shows how often folks listened to it.

    having said that, the first song in the discography is actually the one that fills me with the most anthem-like reverence for the mighty zep - good times, bad times - not cause its the best, but because of what it renders in my head, as a work.

    AH! Thx... That's 2 between us...
     
  15. trb??

    We're Gonna Groove isn't a lost track, its on their Coda album (which is really strange bc they had been playing it for years before they released it)
    I looked it up and Baby Come On Home is the previously unreleased, I haven't heard it, and the comp i dwn load songs with is temporarily out of service ( :bawl: )
     
  16. yeah that song kicks ass, didn't include it bc i thought i was the only one that thought it did :smug:

    does anybody else find it surprising that Stairway to Heaven isn't #1?

    I was gonna vote for "Black Dog"...tunes like "Ramble On" & "What Is & What Should Never Be" showcase LZ as both 'acoustic' & Rockin'/heavy in ONE tune.
    "Ramble On" gets my vote!
