This is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin song with Ten Years Gone and No Quarter (TSRTS).

Does this song rank in your top 5 or 10 by Led Zeppelin? Posted Image
Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you; tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face; tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you; and tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you.

It's been in my top 5 since 1972.

Wonderful bluesy tune.

Gotta love Bonzo's drum work...

No, but No Quater is my favorite song.

Overall, Houses of the Holy is my favorite album of all time.

'In My Time Of Dying' from How 'The West Was Won' DVD is a rare gem.

I still gets chills watching Jimmy feel that guitar.

Great song.

Mike Portnoy said that the drum fills near the end of Dream Theater's The Spirit Carries On were inspired after those in SIBLY.

Top 10, definitely. Here are some other faves: Out on the Tiles, When the Levee Breaks, the No Quarter version on the DVD The Song Remains the Same, and Whole Lotta Love from that DVD (or the CD), Achilles Last Stand, Trampled Underfoot, The Wanton Song, Sick Again, heck *all* of Physical Graffiti!

This is like asking someone to pick a favorite child......

And while I won't try to rank Zep's catalog, I will second the Wanton Song for inclusion on anyone's list of Zep tunes to check out.

Plant and Page opened with that when they toured in '94 (or was it '95???). Clearly the most impressive show opening I have ever seen.

The lights were off, and the band started to play what I thought was going to be Immigrant Song. They stopped dead, paused for a second or two, and tore right into The Wanton Song as the lights came up. Stunning! Goose bumps...tears in the eye...you name it. I never saw Zep in their heyday, but this show was incredible. Breathing the same air as Jimmy and Robert is a memory that will last a life time.

Dang, I forgot the Immigrant Song! Posted Image

Long before the official release, I had a bootleg of the show that comprised the bulk of the BBC live CDs. *That* particular version where Jimmy stretches out and does the solo is incredible.

I saw Page/Plant in '98 or so, and they did the Wanton Song then too. They chose a nice selection of stuff. Not just the "popular" stuff.


Obscure pop culture reference: the first side of the 4th album, but not the 2nd side of Physical Graffiti. ?? Posted Image

Not to throw things off on a tangent, bu I was just curious what people thought of the Tool cover of "No Quarter"?

On the topic of Zep, and covers that are as good as the original, http://www.emusic.com has a promo offer for 50 free AND LEGAL downloads of mp3s. There's an album for free (and legal) called Great Zepelin. It's Great White doing a live show covering Zep. It's a must download.

I have the CD of the Great White disc. Not bad. The Black Crowes with Jimmy is a good disc to have too.

Since I've been Loving You has been absolutely one of my favorites since I first got into Zep in the mid-1980's. As others have said, it's impossible to rank Led Zeppelin songs as they have so many great ones. I do find it interesting that not one person (unless I missed it) mentioned Stairway in their list of favorite Zep songs. It confirms my observations over many years that people who really like Zep don't count Stairway among their favorite songs, though it is probably their most widely known songs to the general public.

Rock and Roll is starting to fall into that category for me because of all the stupid Cadillac commercials.
