Overlooked Led Zeppelin tune!?

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm wrong but I have to say "Four Sticks" is often left out of the Zep IV discussions and I find it to be a fantastic song with Bonham's genius front and center. :drumz: Others may love it as I do, but I rarely find myself talking to other Zeppelin fans about this song. Some even say that's it filler on IV... which is a dumb statement to me. It is hard to call anything on that album "filler."

So...let me know what song you feel isn't given enough air play, discussion, or credit in the Led Zeppelin catalog.

I concur with Four Sticks. That song didn't get it's proper due back in the day. Still doesn't despite the fact that Page/Plant did it in 1994-95, as did Plant with SS.

Terribly underappreciated piece of work.

"In the Light" never gets airplay or mention. The tempo changes are amazing, as is the entire album that it's on.

I totally agree. I just recently purchased PG and it just continues to blow me away. After hearing "In the Light", I was so excited, I just wanted to share this "rare jewel" with everyone I knew.

Down By The Seaside. Love the changes and the guitar solo !!

Yes......excellent choice. I love that song. It is so mellow and musical at the same time. One of PG's "forgotten" songs.

How about Darlene off of Coda. It's a great tight groove, and sounds like the guys were having fun. I wonder why it was left off of ITTOD. It's the only song from the ITTOD session that has writing credits to all four of them.......

Really? I hear it on the radio all the time. In fact, most Zep songs I hear on the radio are from PG.

For me, their most underrated song is Your Time is Gonna Come. I love JPJ's awesome keyboarding in it. Achilles Last Stand and Down by the Seaside are close behind.

I agree. One of Zeppelin's best! But too long for radio. :nhl_checking:

I've found that when traveling in different places, and tuning in to other radio stations, the format is much different than where I live. For some reason, it seems the variety of Zep songs has broodened lately here - but the variety of other bands played has become very limited.

Agree 100%. An amazing tune. One of Robert's best vocals IMO. You can just feel the sadness in his voice.

I'll say Four Sticks, The Rover, In The Light, The Wanton Song and Celebration Day are their most overlooked songs IMO...
