Average top 30 songs

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums here, so not sure if anyone has done this, or where to post it.
I though a cool idea would be if we got a good group of people to post their top 30 led Zeppelin songs from the 9 original studio albums in order.

My list constantly changes, as I guess so do many people's, so it is a general idea.

But what I can then do is make a spreadsheet to work out the average rank each song gets which you can then compare your own choices to.

I did this against some of the top lists I found online, and found it very interesting to see which songs I seemed to over and underrate.

Think would be good to do amongst true led Zeppelin fans, the more that do it the better obviously.


The only thing is I don't know what seems the best value to give a song that you have not ranked in your top 30, but others have, ie do we give them all 31 as any way will seem to skew the results, as everyone is not going to pick the same 30 songs.

First of all, in my opinion, there is no "average" Led Zeppelin song.  With that being said, I will list the top 30 Led Zeppelin songs that I can think of that are some of my favorites.  I choose not to rank them because it would take me hours to do so.  My list of 30 will be LZ songs that come into my head at this very moment.

In the Light

The Rover

No Quarter

Trampled Underfoot

Since I've Been Loving You

Achilles Last Stand

Out on the Tiles

Dazed and Confused

Whole Lotta Love

That's the Way

The Ocean

Stairway to Heaven

Hots on for Nowhere

Communication Breakdown

Battle of Evermore

Sick Again

Walter's Walk

How Many More Times

When the Levee Breaks

Kashmir

Ozone Baby

Heartbreaker

Gallows Pole

Ten Years Gone

Black Country Woman

Tea For One

Wanton Song

The Crunge

Wearing and Tearing

Travelling Riverside Blues (I know, not technically on one of the 9 studio albums but a great Led Zeppelin reinterpretation of a classic Robert Johnson original). 

This is my list.  It took me about 10 minutes to compile with the my knowledge of Led Zeppelin and the help of Budweiser, the King of Beers. 

Led Zeppelin:  the Kings of Rock and Roll....

Thanks guys! 

And not looking for an average song, looking to see what songs are ranked the highest on average.

For example i have not initially got 11 rankings, and as shown 4 songs are ranked in the top 30 by every list. and another 6 songs which are ranked all but once (which actually are all by  Kiwi_Zep_Fan87) which therefore shows them the songs they specifically dont listen to as much. which others rank high when looking at the overall stats.

I have also shown the initial top 30 based on if a song gets given a rank of 31 where not ranked in a list

Of all the songs I listed above, I remembered one more that should have come to me that I vastly overlooked/overthought, and that would be "Carouselambra".

I have always loved the so-called quirkier Led Zeppelin songs like Carouselambra, The Crunge and Hats off To Roy Harper, much more than the so-called traditional favourites, such as (for instance) Whole Lotta Love, Dazed and Confused, Heartbreaker, Ramble On and Communication Breakdown

I guess I am one among the few. :mellow:

Yer im surprised too really, which is why i thought I would ask in the forum, as i think a lot of true zeppelin fans do like a lot more of the as you say, quirkier, songs as well, and didnt expect to see such an overriding group of songs.
