Can you list your top 10 LZ songs, in no particular order?


Recommended Posts


I chose these 10 songs based entirely on the studio versions and disregarding any preference I have for their live renditions.

1.  Since I’ve been loving you 

2.  Black dog

3.  Stairway to heaven

4.  Heartbreaker 

5.  Going to California 

6.  Good Times bad Times 

7.  Over the hills and far away 

8.  I’m gonna crawl 

9.  The rover 

10. Houses of the holy

In my time of dying

Ten Years Gone

Achilles last stand

Night Flight

How many more times

Dazed and confused

Nobody's fault but mine

The lemon song

when the levee breaks

Trampled (live is so much better than studio, but still amazing song)

Sub out NFBM for The Rover and it's pretty close to what I'd go for. Trampled live - I hear ya! I'd be tempted to sub D&C for No Quarter too - and again go with live.

Of course, I could almost go 10 other songs altogether such is their depth.

In no particular order:

a) Kashmir -  the main riff captivated me as a little boy in the 70s (grown ups always had the radio on back then). I stopped whatever I was doing to listen. It sounded like the guitar was going one way, the drums the other. Like an invisible rubber band being pulled (the guitar pulling one end, the drums the other) and the tension created in that pull sucked my ears/brain right into the vortex. I've never heard anything like it before or since (and I have looked hard lol)

b) Down by the Seaside

c) When the Levee Breaks

d) Traveling Riverside Blues

e) Hey Hey What Can I Do

f) Tea for One

g) South Bound Suarez - the timing of that solo gets me every time. I always visualize Robert looking over at Jimmy as he ends the verse, and then Jimmy going into shred mode

h) Four Sticks

i) Battle of Evermore

j) Custard Pie - this sounds like Robert and Jimmy were listening to garage rock (Kingsmen, Sonics, etc) and thought "hey we can do that!". It has that feel to it.
