Of course Stairway to Heaven really put them on the map and you cannot deny the power of the song, however my personal fave is Achilies Last Stand. Kashmir is great too though.

Well, today my favorite Zep songs are Friends and Four Sticks. Tomorrow it might be Custard Pie and Black Mountain Side. Next week it might be Thank You and Poor Tom.

From a "put on the map" perspective, Dazed and WLL put them centre stage. STH put them into the stratosphere, and Kashmir was icing on the cake.

To be honest, i avoid the "hits' because i do not want to burn out. I'll play Dancing day's, Hot's on or Gallow's pole before i listen to the aforementioned. "Best" is a very subjective term, especially when it comes to Zep. Every song is best for me and each day brings a new gem.

You're English is fine. Mine, however, needs work. :)

I think Stairway to Heaven suits Led Zeppelin best, in my humble opinion :) .

Kashmir is an excellent song as well, but STH is much more Zep-like, I think. Each member has his part, and when you put it up together you get one of the best Zeppelin songs. And after you listen to it, you want to hear it again.

When Robert was asked about Stairway To Heaven being Zeppelin's defining song he said no Kashmir is...but I disagree and voted Stairway.

They're all, in my opinion, extremely powerful, moving songs. With real Zeppelin fans, they'll always talk about Stairway to Heaven, Kashmir and Achilles Last Stand as their greatest feats

I just don't understand why people say that any fan that likes Stairway to Heaven knows nothing about Led Zeppelin at all..? I just don't understand these people. I think Stairway to Heaven is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest song ever written.

My theory on these 'Anti-Stairway' people is that they think that since Stairway is the only song that Zeppelin is known for, outside the fanbase.. which makes them think it's an overrated song. My opinion on this is that Stairway to Heaven is such a great, and amazing song that it's just really well known. Remember famous doesn't ALWAYS mean overrated.

Also I think that since Robert Plant doesn't like the song much, some people have thought, "Hey, Plant doesn't like the song.. that means it sucks!" ... He originally loved the song, but grew tired of it. He never said that the song sucks.

ALSO before you start flaming me, it could all be based on personal opinion.. if you don't like the song personally, that's completely fine with me, I have nothing at all against that.. I just think it's stupid to hate the song because of the two reasons above.

Good points. I would listen to a dozen other LZ songs before I would listen to STH. Not because it's not a great song though. In terms of rock & roll compositions, it's in the top three with A day in the Life and Baba O'Riley as the best songs ever imo. Personally, I chose Kashmir and disagree with someone here who said it was mainly Page and Plant. JPJ"s keyboard work is magnificent and Bonzo did some of his best drumming on this track.

I voted Kashmir because it's my favorite Led Zeppelin song and I think it always will be. Achilles Last Stand and Stairway To Heaven are good, really good, but Kashmir is better, in my opinion. :)

Achilles. To me it shows the prowess of each member, and is a highlight when played live. Even Pagey said it's his favourite Zep song and Plant said Presence is the most "Zeppelin" of their albums.

The poll misses my favourite: Since I've Been Loving You but of those three I rate Achilles Last Stand the highest.

I loved all of the songs that they performed live on the 77 Tour. In my opinion, seeing them live twice, I would have to say Kashmir. The band really sounded tight when they performed Kashmir. ROCK ON!
