    What is / lemon song (it counts as one song in my book). And I'd like to get my hands on that BP issue.
  2. +1

    Same here ;)
  3. Good Times Bad Times is indeed a towering bass achievement, but I have to pick Led Zepplin II. That eight-track tape came into my life when I was about eleven, and what a great endless ditty it was, I just let it run and run.

    For Your Life. JPJ's tone on that song kills me.
  7. The riff in The Rover simply slays. Another would be That's the Way.


    My favorite? GOSH.

    Here's not only the one song but the one track/performance that to me says it all about this band. I hear this in my head all the time. This really, really, really does it for me. Crazy it didn't come out while they were together. It might be the best concert starter ever.

    Headphones, turn it up, click and enjoy.

    We're Gonna Groove.

    +1 for "The Rover"

    Heard it for the 1st time when WNEW started "Get the Led Out" way back when and I had a Zeppelin "holy s#*%" moment!

    "Thank You". There are many, many others I really like, too. But this one is the stand-out for me.

  14. Wow, love this thread idea, and it's next to impossible for me to pick. Been a huge fan since seeing TSRTS in the theater at the age of thirteen, 1978.

    Anyhow, I'll give a nod to Ten Years Gone, as it really illustrates Pages production and compositional skills, the layers of guitars, the dynamics. Impressed that so many have picked that one. It's a great example of them moving beyond the blues origins of the band.

    Then you have Levee, which is a great example of them taking the blues and really putting their stamp on it. It's a straight blues, but then, not at all, due to the production. Powerful stuff.

    Also, the live version of The Song Remains the Same , on the soundtrack of the same, is really hard to beat for its energy.

    Ugh, so many.....what to do?

    Gotta mention Custard Pie, LOVE the grove on that.

    But.......if I HAD to pick one, and this thread is about picking one, I would go with...........

    In My Time of Dying. Raw, very live feeling, powerful and muscular as hell.

    There, that's my pick.

    For today at least.

    Thread over as soon as it's begun. That song has it all. It's so Zeppelin it burst into flames.

    Tough call. It's been overplayed, but I suppose I'd have to go with Stairway to Heaven.

    I'm currently playing in a Zep tribute, and my favorite song changes weekly. This week it's the rain song. At the top of my list for playing fun I of course love ramble on, and the lemon song. Also love playing over the hills and far away for some reason. And the song remains the same... Ya know, I love playing all zeppelin. We now do a little over 50 Zep tunes, and it's the most fun I've ever had learning and playing music that wasn't my own.
