  1. 1. Which are your THREE least favourite?



Recommended Posts

I just went down tracks album by album and the only songs I usually skip are Hats off to Harper, Tea for One and Carouselambra so not that I don't like them but I guess those are my least favorites...

D'yer maker is a classic. It's on the 1st box set by Jimmy for a reason. If you don't like it then you don't get it and therefore not a true fan!

dude, being a true fan doesn't mean that you need to love all of their songs. everyone is entitled to their own opinion (man, that sounded passive aggressive, lol). if you think d'yer mak'er is awesome, fine. hell, i like hats off to [roy] harper, hahaha! but that doesn't mean a true fan can't dislike some songs.

I'm gonna go back and listen to Carouselumbrella again just to make sure I'm justified in calling it the worst Zep song. It's been ten years since I've heard it.

I love the old bluesy grit of Hats Off. You can't like delta blues and not like this song.

I like Dyer Maker. Catchy riff, powerful vocals, awesome lead work, cool drum fills. You're an asshole if you don't like that stuff.

Hot Dog is a fun song. It's supposed to be a humorous nod to country/rockabilly.

I can tolerate the Crunge because I can hear what it's supposed to be after hearing it live. It just didn't carry over in the studio well.

The Coda tracks are neither here nor there. They're just uncreative and boring.

I agree with all of that 100 percent. :yesnod:

Ok, I listened. Yes, it's their worst song because of those wonky synths. A version minus all synths and clearer vocals would've been truly awesome, like an Achilles part 2. Why won't Jimmy give us that for an alternate version instead of a "rough mix" with the EQ unadjusted?

I don't think these are the "worst" Zep songs (there are no bad Zep songs), there are just 2 I do not like. Only 2 in their entire repertoire. Tea for One (flame away, folks, I can take it!) and Going to California. Just personal preference.
