I voted for Kashmir, but I think Dazed and Confused and In My Time of Dying should have been on the poll as well.

The Rain Song seemed not an adventurer's tale to me more than a lover's gushing of.. well.. love.

The No Quarter is an adventurer's tale?

Well, I'd say ALS because I just did a cover of it and it's been in my mind alot lately. If Rain Song was an option, I'd definitely pick it.

+2....an epic song to me is one that defines the band. No other song in their catalog is associated with Zeppelin more than "Stairway". Come on, it was THE most requested song on FM radio in the day!

You Had To include IMTOD, but yet i choose Tea for One.

Tea for one isn't epic. A great blues, yes... but not is epic.

Since I've Been Loving You could have been added.

Maybe The Rain Song too.

Well, the options for epic song could have been expanded to include How Many More Times, The Battle of Evermore, Dazed and Confused, and Since I've Been Loving You. Having said that, I think they are all epic, and each appeals to a specific mood. As for the moment, the songs that most speak to me would be The Battle of Evermore and Achilles Last Stand, so I will have to go with Achilles Last Stand since it is the only poll option of my two current epic faves. Hey OID!

Caroulselambra. The way each section moves to the next is just amazing. Musically it is a masterfully arranged piece. Lyrically it is extremely underrated in my eyes as Plant really delves deep into what it was to be Led Zeppelin.

All are good choices however :)

Stairway but I really think it should be Dazed and Confused (the 25 minute HTWWW version).

I do as well.

What classes as "epic" then? Is it just length, or subject matter too?

My first thought was actually In My Time Of Dying...which isn't on the poll *cries*

So, I guess I'm gonna trump for that old classic Stairway...I just love the way it builds up gradually verse by verse, then the solo, then the goddamn heavy metal bit that you can rock the hell out to. Gotta love it. :D

I had to go Stairway - epic on the album - ultra epic live in terms of its execution and arrangement on the twin neck EDS-1275

It's hard to think of a Led Zep song that is not epic though.
