For me it is The Ocean. The guitar solo, Robert's sing, the phone ringing, the stunning bass line and general joyous mayhem is one of the most beautiful and important things humans have created.

Yeah, me too I love the Ocean, I'm hearing it about ten times a day, but it isn't played very often, that's stupid :angry:

The Rain Song is awesome.

Come on, "it's just a little rain".

For me...this may be the toughest album to pick a favorite from. I went with "The Rain Song." I love the lyrics and the overall musical attitude. The closing guitar is amazing and always stops me dead in my tracks.

That was a toss up between The Ocean and No Quarter

NQ got my vote, due to all of the different elements contained within the framework of the cut.

They mesh perfectly into a mezmerizing sonic stew!!

I voted "Over the Hills and Far Away," but it comes to a close tie with "The Ocean"...

Another difficult album to choose a favorite. I have to go with Over the Hills and Far Away, although The Ocean and TSRTS are the others I considered. The Rain Song is beautiful I love that song but it's not my fav off HOTH. I can listen to OTHAFA all day I love the opening acoustic guitar it's so pretty. Plant's lyrics are some my favorite..... and I really like Jimmy's riff and solo. I think it was great how they faded out the song with Plant singing "you really ought to know, know, know" and then it gently fades back in with the ending notes. Just a great song!

It's definitely No Quarter for me. One of my favorite Zep songs of all time. Can't really describe why...just has always really appealed.

No Quarter or OTHAFA. No Quarter is one of those mind-blowing balls-out complete experiences, and OTHAFA is just such a nice little song...I love to sing along with it!

For me it's Dancing Days, it seemed to be the most "Modern" sounding Song. Maybe because i heard the Stone Temple Pilots version before i heard Zep Original. But i tell what i don't actually like listening to any of the songs on the actually album, i think they are all better "Live", but then again which Zep Song Isn't.

You asked 2 questions: Best song and then favorite song.

Best song - The Rain Song.

Favorite Song - No Quarter, although I prefer live versions.

I never noticed that until you pointed that out. Either way for me it's still Over the Hills and Far Away followed by The Ocean and The Song Remains the Same

The Rain Song; 'I felt the coldness of my winter, I never thought it would ever go' is really a strong lyrical line, and the instrumentals in the song are lovely; they transport me to a gentler place.

The best in my opinion is The Rain Song but I also love D'yer Mak'er because it's such a cheerful song.
