-=Official Led Zeppelin Thread=-
 
This is the official LucasForums Led Zeppelin thread.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on them. They are my favorite band. In the mail today, arrived their Boxed set #2. (I still have yet to recieve Boxed Set #1) Some (or should I say almost all) of the songs on these CD's (2 CD's total) are the more "unpopular" songs, since these are the songs that weren't included in the 1st boxed Set. 32 songs, one which was previously unreleased. The song's title is Baby Come on Home. Its a really good bluesy type song which makes you wanna sing along!

I wanna hear what you heard of them and what your favorites are. My favorites are:
The Lemon Song
Baby Come on Home
Night Flight
Good Times Bad Times
Battle of Evermore
Black Dog
Rock and Roll
Stairway to Heaven
Whole Lotta Love
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
The Ocean

and OH SO MUCH MORE. I personally think all of their songs are great, but I just wanted to name a few...

Do they still play Stairway to Heaven at school dances? I remember swaying like an idiot in a room full of sweaty 9th graders during the fast section of that song, with Plant screeching and Page wailing ... but then, that was 1982 ...

They were never one of my fave rock bands, they were fairly solid, but didn't have anything that sparked for me ... but then I was already on my path towards fusion and avante-garde jazz ... besides, back then most of the people who were into them were spacer pot-heads "dude, floyd, sabbath, zepplin ..."

A question - if they were already 'classic rock' in 1982 (actually, the term hadn't been coined yet), what are they now? Given that their music now is about the same vintage as Rosemary Clooney and Doris Day were for me in high school ... have they started calling it oldies yet? Or does that offend the middle-aged radio managers too much ;)

Miko Reglia 01-22-2004 12:16 AM

unfortunately i havent heard stairway to heaven at any of my dances, although i did hear you shook me all night long at the last one:D

and about the classic rock thing...well...the radio station that plays em a lot has the phrase "Classic rock that rocks" so eh, i guess their Classic Rock still...

Well, they split up in 1980 because their drummer died. They started as a band in 1968 and had their first album out in 1969, so they ARE classic rock, but not at the 1982 era. They did release an album in '82, bt it was a bunch of leftover songs...

Miko Reglia 01-22-2004 02:21 AM

CODA was the name of the album if i am correct:D

and poor John Bonham...:(

I think Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and Jimmy Paige should all go on a small tour or something with John's son on drums...but like Robert's voice is pretty much gone now and stuff...oh well...

sometimes i wish i was born in a different time period:D

lol, same here.

I think John Paul Jones is one of the most underrated musicians of all time. He can play like over 10 instruments. And thats AMAZING.

Oh, I'm familiar with their history ... it is just that in ~82 they were already part of the dinosaur rock era, later called classic rock. They were still on the radio - and their pre-Coda album got some pop radio airplay. I am just saying that the time between their heyday (early 70's) and now is 30 years ... and for me, as a teenager in ~82, that would equate with music from the early 50's - the pre-rock era. It is just interesting, that's all.

Led zeppelin is ok, deep purple is better.

However, I guess stairway to heaven is pretty good.

No, its DAMN good. :D

Miko Reglia 01-22-2004 10:50 PM

yeah deep purple and led zeppelin are both very good bands, however it just seems like "smoke on the water" is their only really good song to my ears:(

however, although led zeppelin to me is very good, pink floyd in my eyes is a bit better...

i mean, they have two of the top selling records of all time, dark side of the moon and the wall, thats at least gotta say something about them:D

Acrylic 01-22-2004 11:14 PM

But Led Zeppelin is one of the four best selling (album wise) bands in America. (As seen on "Greed", a gameshow)

Which Led Zeppelin Song are you?

You're Stairway to Heaven! You must ****ing own. People love to be around you, because you're so interesting and mysterious, and make people feel like there's a point to their existence after all. You're intelligent, popular, and very talented. I envy you, dude!

Jed 01-22-2004 11:21 PM

Which Song are You?

MERGED WITH OTHER LED ZEPPELIN THREAD YOU CREATED

Sorry, but I mean...it's redundant...you even called the other thread the "official Led Zeppelin" thread :\

I wish you'd unmerge it. I made this for Led Zep discussion, and the quiz for the quiz. I dont want it getting mixed up.

Datheus 01-23-2004 01:11 AM

You can't exactly get it mixed up. They're... both about Led Zeppelin. Only a fool would get mixed up.

Led Zeppelin was pretty cool. I have a couple of songs and some orcestra covers of thieir songs. But I prefer Pink Floyd over Led Zeppelin.

CapNColostomy 01-23-2004 08:59 AM

I hate Led Zeppelin, but I thought I'd mention a band I like that loves them. Their new album is named after a line in "Stairway". Down 2- Bustle In Your Hedgerow? Anybody into that?

yes it is.

Its probably the most overplayed song in recent music history too...although im sure newer songs have the advantage of MTV and VH1.


oh I was this song.

http://live.quizilla.com/user_images...tpicsquiz1.gif

who could have possibly guessed...


btw its kinda immature to go posting in here "I hate them die!" heh, im surprised ppl havent been flaming. Maybe its cause groovy is on the prowl.

Somebody mentioned Pink Floyd...they both have their ups n downs...I love them both equally. Led Zeppelin is more of an upbeat party band when you dance to the songs and sing the lyrics and stuff while Pink Floyd is like readig poetry...you lay back relax listen to the songs very closely because their so musically and lyrically complex.

To me...Pink Floyd is relaxing..but...Led Zeppelin is the best band ever.

And, Whole Lotta Love is a great song, but I hate it once he starts making noises and stuff. :p

Miko Reglia 01-23-2004 11:34 PM

haha whole lotta love does get weird at that part huh!:D

anyway i took the test, i got stairway to heaven too...

and i mean pink floyd isnt all relaxing all the time, pop in "Animals" an see for yourself:D

Are you kidding me? Some kids put it in the English Teacher's stereo ( some days he lets us), and well, Plant started singing the weird stuff, and the teacher almost turned it off because she was thinking that he was.....ya know...
