  1. So I'm watching a video about Led Zeppelin's 4th album, and in it they go over most of the songs from the album. When the segment comes up for Misty Mountain Hop, one of the hosts describes the song as "cheesy" & "a track many fans will skip". Is this true? Is that what many long-time (or even short-time) fans think? I happen to think it is a great song; probably my 1st or 2nd favorite from the album. I remember it had an immediate impact on me...I thought it rocked, as well as grooved big time! Comments or opinions?
  2. I wanted to share a story with you fans, in the hopes you will appreciate it as much as I do Now, I have always been a huge music fan of all different types of genres, (mostly classic rock, pop, & R&, but have not had too much of an opportunity to expose my son to a lot of it due to the fact that he lives with his mother most of the time...and she is a Mormon who disapproves of preeeety much everything I do, and severely limits the amount of exposure he gets to most music and movies (sorry if this offends anyone). I see him once a month. I was with my son one day a couple of years ago (who was 8 at the time), and as we were driving home, he commented on a song he had heard on the radio that he really liked ("Listen To The Music" by the Doobie Brothers). I thought this was neat, because I was sure he had never heard it before, and it showed he had an ear for good music. This gave me an idea to make up a list of songs we would listen to during our video gaming sessions...a list we have come to call the "Gaming Kick-Ass List!" Realizing that most of the songs on the list (which were pretty much rock & funk songs) he would be hearing for the first time, I figured I would just put on many of my 'typical' favorites, but not get too 'out there' yet. After an initial trial run at the first version of the list (which was only about 2 hours), and seeing that we were both enjoying the music-but-no-game-sounds aspect, I made a larger version of the list for the next session. Okay...so we are sitting there playing, and I am trying to pay attention to his reactions to each song (if any) to gauge how my selections are faring. About 30 minutes into this, a song comes on and I noticed him kind of space out for a few seconds looking away from the TV screen, and then watched his little thumb pause his game from his controller. The first thing that ran through my mind was that he couldn't deal with the song that was now playing, since he had yet to officially comment on any song I had played for him. So I asked him if he was okay, to which he said "Yes". I then said "What's up, bud? Do you not like this song?"...and I'll never forget the look on his face. His eyes got really big, but still a bit spaced-out because he was still listening to the song, and then he turned to me and said in a very emphatic tone "Yeah...I like it a LOT! Can You start it again?" The song was Kashmir. I thought that was SO freaking cool! I kid you not, we listened to that song about 8 times that day. He LOVES that song! Since then, it was always the very first song he pulled up on my iPod when I picked him up...until recently when he made a rare request that a new song must be added to the "Gaming Kick-Ass List!" - When The Levee Breaks. I can't tell you how thrilled I am that he loves this music, especially since I have allowed him to pick the music he likes from a variety of types I play around him. Anyway, I thought you all might all enjoy this little story, especially as Led Zeppelin fans Thanks for reading!
