  1. Why did this get moved to newbies? This is worthy of the main thread. I am not a newbie, I have been a member for like 7 years and a Led Zeppelin fan for more than 20.
  2. I'll start. I skipped Physical Graffiti and Presence because meh. They're good but not great and I didn't feel like it. Also omitted CODA. The First two albums were very difficult, due to 90% of all songs containing Baby Baby Baby. Led Zeppelin I I Know What It Means To Be Alone I Can Hear It Calling Me The Way It Used To Do I Have A Bird That Whistles, "Soul Of A Woman Was Created Below" Drive Me Insane, Trouble Is Gonna Come To You I Don't Know What It Is I Like About You My Love For You I Could Never Hide I Know It Is Alright in My Mind Led Zeppelin II: Way Down Inside Honey You Need It Happiness Is What You Need So Bad I Should Have Listened, Baby, To My Second Mind It Will Still Be You And Me Some People Cry and Some People Die by The Wicked Ways Of Love When Your Conscious Hits You Knock It Back With Pills The Autumn Moon Lights My Way Watch This Train Go Down The Track Led Zeppelin III: Despite All Of Your Losing Without A Friend, There's No Denying We Are Going To Sing And Dance in Celebration I've Been Working From Seven To Eleven Every Night I Live From Day To Day I Bought A Little Gold Thinking How It Used to Be And Yesterday I Saw You Standing By The River Ah Caught You Smiling At Me Well I Ain't No Monkey IV: Eyes That Shine Burning Red I Can't Count The Tears Of A Life With No Love Oh Well The Night Is Long, The Beads of Time Past Slow And My Spirit Is Crying For Leaving So I Am Packing My Bags For The Misty Mountains Oh, Baby It's Cryin' Time, Oh Baby I've Got To Fly Took My Chances On a Big Jet Plane Cryin' Won't Help You Houses of the Holy: You Don't Know What You're Missing Now Speak To Me Only With Your Eyes Many Times I've Lied, Many Times Been Bitten When She Looks Me In The Eye I've Got A Woman Who Knows Baby Please Don't Go To Build A Dream For Me And You Got No Time To Pack My Bag, My Foot's Outside the Door In Through The Out Door: When The Day Is Done With a Little Bit of Concentration The Clock On The Wall's Moving Slower I Find Myself No Wiser Than Before Who Cares to Dry The Cheeks Of Those Who Saddened Stand Within The Glow That Weaves A Cloak Of Delight? If I Dream Too Much At Night, Somebody Please Bring Me Down
  3. For me it was watching the O2 performance in theaters. It was the closest I will ever get to seeing them in concert, as I had not previously seen the concert, the theater was packed and beer was served so I was a little buzzed while watching it (for the complete concert experience imo). I cried I was so moved by it all. Going along with your origin story, in my case there was no one day where I became a Led Zeppelin fan. It was a gradual process. I was 8 or 9 (I cannot even remember the year, much less the day) when I first heard it played in my dad's car. My parents are divorced and me and my sister visited our dad a few weeks a year. Dad got the box set on cassette and was always playing it. It eventually became sort of a Pavlov effect. I can't remember which song I heard first but Ramble On, Whole Lotta Love, What Is And What Should Never Be, Misty Mountain Hop, Communication Breakdown, Black Dog, Heartbreaker and Dancing Days stand out most in my memory. My dad would not only play these songs, but he always played them loud. I remember my sister complaining it was too loud but I didn't mind. I distinctly remember - once I became really interested in the music - asking my dad if they were American. My Dad laughed and said no they're British. I also remember insisting that Dancing Days must have a female singer, I couldn't believe that was a man singing that song. The Pavlov effect has worn off many, many years ago and now I am just a fan strictly for the music. My relationship with my Dad has cooled ever since I became an adult. The breaking point of my association of my Dad and Led Zeppelin was when I took him for his birthday to see Robert Plant in 2005 at the Ryman Auditorium. I thought he would love it (and I did - he did 2/3 Zeppelin material) but he didn't appreciate it. It was then that I realized Dad was just a casual fan all along who was having some sort of a mid-life crisis when he bought the boxed set.
  4. I have watched the DVD soooo many times. I did check and I was surprised to see that it is playing in two major theaters in Nashville, one in Imax. When the O2 performance came to town it was only playing in a local arts theater. I may have to go to the Imax version... Having gone to the O2 viewing, there is just something special about watching Led Zeppelin on the big screen with an audience. However, the O2 performance was extra special because none of us had seen the performance. I hope Dazed and Confused from TSRTS is featured, my favorite Led Zeppelin live anything is its "San Francisco" segment.
  5. Immediately What is and What Should Never Be in Silver Linings Playbook came to mind. What a powerful scene. I was so pleasantly surprised by one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs but the scene was so intense and hard to watch at the same time. It was a perfect song for the scene - the song's "light and shade" vs. bi-polar disorder's mania and depression. It was so emotional for me that I actually cried watching it in the theater.
  6. I had this idea to come up with a few invented albums made up of various songs that sort of flow together nicely. fake album 1: What Is and What Should Never Be Side 1: What is and What Should Never Be Heartbreaker Communication Breakdown Since I've Been Loving You Side 2: The Rain Song Friends (let's pretend that audio error at the end isn't there) Fool In The Rain Tea For One (sort of a SIBLY reprise) fake album number 2: "Bron-Yr-Aur" Side 1: Over the Hills and Far Away Tangerine Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp Going to California Battle of Evermore Side 2: Bron-Yr-Aur Friends (I can use it here too..) Four Sticks Stairway to Heaven
  7. Well they are all classics. I could say Walter's Walk which I believe is the last recorded Led Zeppelin song (The music was old but Robert's vocals were clearly late 70's and I believe post-ITTOD). Led Zeppelin's sound changed so much in the "latter days". If you mean last classic song as in the last song that sounded more like their earlier work I would say Fool in the Rain.
  8. This should be interesting. I'll start: Led Zeppelin Communication Breakdown How Many More Times Good Times Bad Times Dazed and Confused I Can't Quit You Baby Babe I'm Gonna Leave You Black Mountain Side You Shook Me Your Time is Gonna Come Led Zeppelin II What is and What Should Never Be Heartbreaker Whole Lotta Love Bring it On Home The Lemon Song Ramble On Livin' Lovin Maid (She's Just a Woman) Moby Dick Thank You Led Zeppelin III Immigrant Song Since I've Been Loving You That's the Way Tangerine Friends Gallows Pole Bron-Y-Aur Stomp Hats Off to (Roy) Harper Celebration Day Out on the Tiles Out on the Tiles is one of my top 3 least favorite Led Zeppelin songs, but Led Zeppelin III is my favorite album. (untitled) Going to California Stairway to Heaven Four Sticks When the Levee Breaks Misty Mountain Hop Battle of Evermore Black Dog Rock and Roll tough choice between Black Dog and Rock and Roll. they are equally my least favorite of IV. Houses of the Holy The Ocean Dancing Days The Rain Song The Crunge D'yer Maker No Quarter Over the Hills and Far Away The Song Remains the Same tough to decide on this one. This is the only Led Zeppelin album that I absolutely love all of the songs. Every other album has at least one song that irks me a slight bit. Physical Graffiti Black Country Woman In My Time of Dying Trampled Underfoot Kashmir Bron-Yr-Aur Houses of the Holy Boogie With Stu The Wanton Song Down by the Seaside Ten Years Gone Custard Pie In the Light Sick Again The Rover Night Flight Yeah, Black Country Woman is my fav. I love Plant in that one and I love how Bonzo comes in after a few verses, first with that simple hard thumping drum beat and then exploding into a more complex kickass arrangement. Presence Achilles Last Stand Nobody's Fault But Mine Tea For One For Your Life Royal Orleans Candy Store Rock Hots on For Nowhere In Through the Out Door Fool in the Rain I'm Gonna Crawl All My Love In the Evening South Bound Suarez Hot Dog Carouselambra The only song that bothers me is Carouselambra. JPJ went synth crazy. It's alright but it drags.
  9. I have been to many concerts but rarely have I seen an artist more than once: Amy Grant 3x when I was a kid. Robert Plant twice. Once at the Ryman Auditorium (aka the "Mother Church of Country Music") and once at the War Memorial, both in Nashville. At the latter I saw Jack White in the audience in the upper balcony. Cage the Elephant twice. that's it. All other artists I have only seen once. MGMT, Stone Temple Pilots (though I had to leave halfway through the show), Dave Matthews Band, The Doobie Brothers, No Doubt, Alanis Mourisette, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Linkin Park, Green Day (with Jimmy Eat World) were all just the one time.
  10. Presence, of their 8 studio albums. Achilles Last Stand is a 10. Nobody's Fault But Mine an 8, Tea For One a 7 and all the rest 6's. From a LZ album there should be mostly 9's and 10's imo. Second to last is Physical Grafiti. All of my absolute least favorite songs from their 8 studio albums are on PG: The Rover, Night Flight and Sick Again. That drops it down. Third to last is hard to say because the top 6 I like about equally. I LOVE In Through The Out Door. I have a bit of a problem with Carouselambra but all the rest are FANTASTIC.
  11. Watching Celebration Day in theater. Oh My God what a wonderful experience that was. It made me think of all the times I listened to Led Zeppelin and what got me into them in the first place. I cried I was so touched by it. It was the closest i'll ever get to seeing them in concert.
  12. Physical Graffiti. To me PG and Presence are their two weakest. Presence is their weakest because Achilles and NFBM are their only really great songs. Tea For One is good but it drags a bit. The other songs are eh. As far as Physical Graffiti, it's a mixed batch with some decent songs (Especially Trampled Underfoot, In My Time of Dying and Black Country Woman) and several not so good songs (Mainly talking The Rover, Night Flight and Sick Again). Physical Graffiti imo has the two worst Led Zeppelin songs, Night Flight and The Rover but the other good to great songs make up for it. Neither are bad albums, far from it, but they're not as good as the other 6.
  13. Boxed Set 1. The whole thing 'cause my dad bought the thing when I was a kid and would play it often. Most memorable songs (some he would skip) were Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, Communication Breakdown, What is and What Should Never Be (he loved playing this one because of the use of stereo), Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Dancing Days, Stairway to Heaven those songs in particular really turned me on to Led Zeppelin. I distinctly remember hearing each when I was a kid/early teen.
  14. It's one of my favorites but not for all the reasons the TC said. I don't care for Carouselambra. To me it is annoying and repetitive. I love all the rest of the songs though. Even the underrated South Bound Suarez which is a very solid Led Zeppelin Track that's better than any of the comparable "lesser" songs from Physical Graffiti and Presence. Lyrically Fool in the Rain is my favorite Led Zeppelin song. How can you beat lines like "Well there's a light in your eyes that keeps shining/ like a star that can't wait for the night"? And bonzo - that drum beat - is legendary. All My Love is also lyrically superb. I'm Gonna Crawl is a bone chilling blues number that moves me every time. To me Led Zeppelin was just as amazing on their last album as their first.
  15. The Rover Out on the Tiles Carouselambra Your Time is Gonna Come Sick Again Hots on For Nowhere Darlene (no order)
