alrighty, had a few rounds last night with a brother of mine  ;) and played "four sticks" on the juke box.  that song kicks ass.

whether the "stairway" thingy annoys you or not, ya gotta give it up for the Zep.  What's your favorite, if you have one?

Here's my short list by album:

1.  Presence
2.  III
3.  Houses of the Holy
4.  Physical Graffiti
5.  I

Songwise:

1.  Houses of the Holy
2.  Nobody's Fault but Mine
3.  How many more Times
4.  I'm gonna Crawl
5.  Hot Dog

Of course this is a SHORT list, so many more tracks encompass my obsession... :D

-Achilles Last Stand
-Hots on for Nowhere
-Four Sticks (muwhahahaha)
-When the Levee Breaks

shit, you could fill this whole space with great songs you don't hear very often...maybe I should have titled this thread "Zep songs not heard anywhere"  ::)

The prolific way these guys wrote songs that make the short hairs on my neck stand up and goosebumps rise on my skin--they had to have a deal with the devil! 8)

man, that song is so great.  what a lost classic it is, despite years of radio play...it's been "trampled under foot" by declining playlists and the "black dog" of klear khannel has declared "no quarter" for such AOR formatting.

makes me wanna start "going to california".  at least the woman-and-kind, stuff and wine bits... 8)

Stairway to Heaven was on the radio in the dining room of the hotel we stayed in after the MMJ show in London. Breakfast with Led Zep - magnificent  8)

I bought an album of Australian covers of Stairway to Heaven. There's a reggae version, an Elvis-style version and so on. It is sooo cool. (Maybe this should be on the guilty pleasures thread  ;))

anybody remember Dread Zeppelin?  they were friggin' hilarious!

We've gotten this far and still no Lemon Song? For shame.

My fave album woul probably have to be How the West Was Won. (HAHAHAHA live album loophole). There is nothing crap about that CD (except maybe Plant's ability to overdo things in the middle of Dazed and Confused.)

Probably the most fun thing about Zep is actually learning to play the songs though. I don't enjoy listening to all that nearly as much as I enjoy playign it on guitar. Plus, jhalf of the stuff people recognize, which is also uber-fun.
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

Lemon is ok but I wouldn't put it at the top of my favorites list of Zep tunes, guess I just heard it too much at parties and on the radio :P.  you're right about how the west was won it's awesome do you have the dvd too--that is wicked fun to watch.

Physical Graffiti is my (and Robert Plant's) favorite.  However, it's like trying to pick out your favorite child.  Coda pretty much is lame (in Zep terms) but the whole catalogue is damn near perfection.

Ten Years Gone needs major props

as does

When the Levee Breaks

and... every riff heavy song on II


The shit just never gets old

R.I.P.  John Bonham

Drunkre

Didn't read the this entire thread before posting, but it looks like "favorite song" so...

Four Sticks

I wonder if the the rumors are true about the name of this song being the number broken by Bonham during the recording of said song.
it's a voice. and it's a choice
to call you out. or stay at home
