  1. Alright, heres the final poll, I've taken Early Day's Winners and Latter Day's Winners and compiled them into one final vote. Enjoy!
     
  2. As for albums, Zeppelin 1 &2, Houses Of the Holy, and Physical Graffiti all tied, having two songs from each on the list, while Zeppelin 4 (?????), In Through The Out Door, and Coda each got no songs on the list, making them the least favorites
     
  3. I love No Quarter. Though, I think I'd always choose Stairway over all the others.

    Kasmir is solid in my book.

    just because I come from 30+ years of semi-pro drumming, and when you play that feel with a bass player who can lock that groove, it is heaven.

    Maybe it doesnt show as much sheer skill but Kashmir is a great song.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    My two faves (both from the same album):

    Gallow's Pole
    Tangerine
     
  8. yeah, sorry, but nobody voted for Stairway in the prelims (aka Early Days poll),so it didnt make it to finals

    "Out On the Tiles" is probably my fav.

    but HoTH / LedZep2 are my fav. overall albums.

    Stairway's my least favorite song.
     
  12. It's quite alright. I like Stairway more for the lyrics than anytihng else. No Quarter has a much better sound, IMO.

    Yea, being an LZ fan, I'm completely burnt out on Stairway...

    While this IS a near impossible choice, I went w/ the Immigrant Song, simply because nothing says Led Zep like it...

    Ooaaaaaaaaaaaa AH!

    Oaaaaaaaaaaaaa AH!

  15. My favourite is Livin' Lovin' Maid / Heartbreaker (as a medley), not on the list.

    From the selection on the list I voted for Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You. My second favourite from the list is Dazed & Confused.

    Favourite Jimmy Page Solo? - Stairway!
     
  16. Oh, sometimes I grow so tired...
    But I know I've got one thing I got to do!

    It was really hard to choose, and Kashmir was a very close second. But I love them all!

    From the list I chose "Immigrant Song" which is my second favorite only befoe "Talking 'Bout Love." You just can't groove and rock harder than that song.
     
  18. when you say 'talking about love' you mean Trampled Underfoot, right?

    I think the best guitar solo goes to the BBC version of Thank You, Stairway to Heaven has the best whole song guitar part though.

    Livin' Lovin' Maid (shes just a woman) and Heartbreaker medley??? whered you hear this?? I think how they merge Immigrant Song into Heartbreaker on BBC and HtWwW is great.

    Over the hills and far away is just an amazing song. I know it wont win, but still it defines the Zep sound, mixing acoustic and electric into a war machine.
