My Six Fave Led Zeppelin Songs

Friday, February 01, 2013

I was late to the Led Zeppelin party for two reasons. First, I was a bit young during their heyday. This is not to say I had never heard of them. I had heard their songs on FM Rock Radio, but it was mostly in passing. By the time I bought my first Zep album, In Through The Out Door, John Bonham had already passed away.

The second reason was that I was, in 1980, into the whole punk & new wave scene, and most of my friends viewed Zeppelin as the absolute epitome of corporate rock.  So why would I even buy a Led Zeppelin album? I am not sure, but over the years, I have become more of a Led Zeppelin fan than I ever imagined I ever would be.

Maybe it was musicianship or the mystical themes. Whatever it was, it appealed to the music geek in me. My list are my favorite songs. I know, I left out Stairway To Heaven, the theme to every prom in the late seventies. I do like that song, but it was just so... ubiquitous, you know?

  1. Kashmir
  2. The Rain Song
  3. Ten Years Gone
  4. D’yer Mak’er
  5. When The Levee Breaks
