Rate the songs on Led Zeppelin IV

Well for me, Going To California is the all time best Zeppelin song ever. It's perfection. The 1971 live versions are just stunning. I remember getting a boot of BBC and hearing it live and I was just mesmerized. Seeing Jimmy and Robert play it live in 1998 was a definite highlight. To rank Zoso, IV, Runes or Untitled... whatever you want to call this album, my list would be as follows:

Going To California

When The Levee Breaks

Misty Mountain Hop

Four Sticks

Battle Of Evermore

Stairway To Heaven

Black Dog

Rock & Roll

The last three I've heard about 9,673,419 times... radio in America is all about the burnout factor. But the first five tracks I never grow tired of. Each track on this album is dynamic in its own way.

It changes over the years so what might be top of my list now would not of been say 20 years ago.

I think 20 years ago it would of been something like

1 B Dog

2 R"Roll

3 Stairway

4 Misty M Hop

5 B of Evermore

6 F Sticks

7 W t L Breaks

8 G 2 California

but now its

1 When the levee Breaks

2 Going to California

3 Black Dog

almost the reverse of 20 years ago

* Perhaps put Stairway to Heaven only for third, it's an heresy...This song is a sort of himn for all Led Zep fans...but the first two are so beautiful...I hope my Gods can forgive their Priestess for this impudence! ;)
