Top 5 Robert Plant solo/Non-Zeppelin songs?

17 posts in this topic

I am sure this is a tired subject for those who have been here a long time (top 5, top 10, etc etc) but I am really just now delving into Plant's solo stuff.  I have Now and Zen, as well as Principal Of Moments.

 

What are his best songs outside of his work with LZ?

Another Tribe

Tin Pan Valley

The Enchanter

Let the Four Winds Blow

Mighty Rearranger

If I can add  a sixth it would be Takamba

Mighty Rearranger is by far my favorite Plant album.

I know it's so derivative of Zeppelin,(but when was that ever a bad thing?), I've always loved Tall Cool One. Very strong percussion, including the piano.

Also Heaven Knows from the same album.

I have to give points to Burning Down One Side as it was his first Post Zep song, and it just sounded so damned good to hear Plant's voice again.

Ship of Fools for the guitar work.

That's pretty much what I had in mind. Except I would take out Big Log and replace it with "Tall Cool One".
