Anyone who doubts there are thousands of ways to say "Thank You" need only peruse this venerable list of compositions. From Abba (with "Thank You for the Music") to ZZ Top, artists of every color and stripe have offered up humble missives of appreciation. Below are 10 such songs that represent the cream of this rich crop. "Thank You" – Led Zeppelin (1969) This track from Led Zeppelin's second album marked the first instance in which Robert Plant wrote all the lyrics to a Zeppelin song. An ode to the singer's then-wife, Maureen, the song instilled in Jimmy Page the confidence that Plant could handle all of Zeppelin's future lyric-writing. A staple of the group's live shows in the early '70s, "Thank You" served as a showcase for John Paul Jones' exemplary keyboard work. Page and Plant revived the song in mellower form in 1994 for their Unledded tour. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
