Remember Second City TV ? ? ?

Rock Moranis does a polka version of STH.

There was also a wonderful commercial as part of that bit, a "Starways To Heaven" commcerical, with different SCTV created "bands" performing STH....

Too bad, that due to publishing rights issues... you'll not see this on the SCTV DVDs that came out a few years ago....

Andrew Denton did a great interview with Page and Plant where he played for them some of these Stairway Tributes. OMG, it's so funny. I like the pirates.

At the end of the show Page and Plant in reply, play their version of Rolf Harris' song Sun Arise.

SCTV Stairways To Heaven

My favorite: America's favorite copy cat, Rich Little. Singing it as only he can, so close to the original, it's scary. - Then they use Robert's actual voice. :hysterical:

nah, the best is Richard Cheese's version.

I only really enjoyed the part where he said "purchasing" instead of "buying the Stairawy to Heaven"

As a parody Richard Cheese's is my favorite. The Beatnix was actually just good. The resemblance of Paul and John is uncanny.

Thanks for those everyone!

I read an interview with Robert Plant few weeks ago. He didn't remember what inspired them to write 'Stairway to heaven' but now he knows that they write it for Dolly Parton. I totally aree with him B)

I'm not sure I totally understand but I do know Dolly wanted to add/alter a few lines in the song and she got approval from Page & Plant prior to recording her version. In fact, I believe they said they liked the new lyrics better.

Dread Zeppelin: totally different and reggae style!! :D

I love it (as a song not as a cover ...)

and I can't forget the one from the mighty Frank Zappa (probably the best cover ever, also on CD single!) :notworthy:
