Whole lotta love. The riff gets in your mind and never comes out. And that guitar solo which bursts out from Jimmy's guitar is pure love. WAAAAY DOWN INSIDE....

God, should I narrow it down to ONE song? I voted Heartbreaker (it has just a glimpse of Jimmy's guitar mastery, and I love Robert's vocals on it), but I also love Whole Lotta Love and the Lemon Song (because they're both naughty and cheeky, haha!), Bring it On Home (very COOL riff) and Ramble On (WONDERFUL lyrics and very ...inspiring, hehe!!)

WLL because it's so recognizable, and such a classic. But IMO Heartbreaker could've been written within the last 10 years rather than the last 40! Really stood the test of time I think, and it also sounds great cranked up in the car. :)

Heartbreaker! Studio version is so raw and awesome! I think he actually did the "Hammer-on" solo better live sometimes. Nothing better than seeing him perform it live w/ his guitar over his head. Lemon Song is a close 2nd. I was just listening to it on 4-26 or 4-27-69 boot this morning. What a heavy song.

I go with Jimmy on this one. The albums are statements unto themselves. Not just individual songs. You can't separate them.

Pick one? That depends on my mood. They all have that moment when that's the one song I want to hear. Forgive me for not voting.

I voted Lemon Song...

Why? Because John Paul Jones is the fuckin man - thats why.

If we were talking radio airplay though, I would have voted for Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman) because, well, its a two-fer.., and any two Zeppelin tunes back-to-back is greater than any single Zeppelin tune you can put up against it.

The song you're referring to on those boots is "Killing Floor", but I suppose I'm just being technical. Cool shit no matter what they call it.

I voted Whole Lotta Love and the reasons for my vote are:

1. the amazing riff

2. the sexy lyrics

3. Plant's vocal performance

4. the cool psychedelic section in the middle

5. the "you need love" scream in the end (it is the best scream ever :wub: )

it is simply a HOT track!!

Yeah I think this song kind of alludes to what is to come in IV.

Stairway also starts out slow and explodes, much like Bring It On Home does, except that Stairway is more gradual.

I voted Whole Lotta Love its the best

I totally have to agree to that :goodpost: WLL is my fave song of all because of all you mentioned, and whenever I see it live and especially Robert singing it I'm like in trance :drool: :drool: :drool:

Livin' Lovin' Maid

For sure. I love all of the stuff on II, but I really love Living Loving Maid. I don't even know why, it just really really has a great rhythm.

"Whole Lotta Love"

I just like the song. I've never heard anything like this before, the main riff, the solo, the structure of the song. The song itself is just great, superior, excellent. I don't really know how should I call it. I just love it.
