JUST ONE SONG TO INTRODUCE LZ


Recommended Posts

Depends on the person of course.

If they're into prog, probably the live version of No Quarter from TSRTS.

If they're into hard rock/metal, Achilles Last Stand.

If they're into soft rock or ballads, The Rain Song.

If they're into folk, probably That's the Way.

If they just want straight up rock, Stairway to Heaven, as cliched as it is.

Even though it is a bit overrated, probably Stairway to Heaven. It sort of just sums up everything they do. It's got slower, some heavy guitar, and some in the middle. 

Overrated? 

I know it's had serious overplay since it came out, but there is surely no denying that it is an absolute masterpiece? It's not my favourite Zep tune (that status is reserved for ten years gone)....but it is amazing. 

Not trying to be arsey, but just surprised that's all

Great post, demonstrating their versatility, innovation and musicianship. 

Personally, I would always opt for Kashmir if I had to pick just one

Good times bad times, Kashmir or Stairway.

It mostly depends on what kind of music the person likes. I've known friends who hear something like Whole lotta love or immigrant song and are like "what the hell is that?". But i did get a couple of my friends into led zeppelin after they heard me listening to stairway to heaven and good times bad times

I would never be able to name just one song to introduce someone to Zep because their music is so diverse! I would do an overview, picking a variety that showcased their versatility

Ramble On 

Good Times, Bad Times

Ten Years Gone

In the Light

Fool in the Rain

Your Time is Gonna Come

In My Time of Dying

Trampled Underfoot

Misty Mountain Hop

I realize that's quite a few songs, but I really think they defy categorization!

Thankz. They can play any style and make it their own. I think they were the greatest band on the planet in their time.
