    3.2a) “Stairway to Heaven” 1971 IV

    Interesting quarter final! I dig all these songs a lot.

    Oh, and, all of you who are picking Immigrant song over Whole Lot of Love are just nuts.
    Love it or hate it, but Stairway is one of the most popular songs of all time for some reason.

    As to "Immigrant Song", I've always love it quite a bit. "Whole Lotta Love" is great but "Immigrant Song" appeals to me just a bit more as does "Communication Breakdown".

    My thoughts exactly on anyone who picked Stairway over Battle of Evermore.

    Immigrant Song

    Kashmir


    Die, Stairway, die!
    "The Turtle Moves!"

    I love them both, and I'd be happy with either one winning. So in that situation, I always side with the Underdog.
    But those are EASILY two of my top 5 Zep songs right there.... If not top 4. The other Two being Stairway and Levee....

    ::tears hear and rends garments at the demise of Levee::

    3.1a) "Whole Lotta Love" 1969 II

    3.2b) “Kashmir" 1975 Physical Graffiti

    It's all academic at this point. My two favorite Zeppelin songs are my dear departed "When the Levee Breaks" and "Heartbreaker", which didn't even make the list.

    I agree that Stairway beating Levee is just.. wrong.

    Much closer than I expect. Stairway got a lot of the late votes.

    We need a volunteer for the next Song Battle.

    3.1 a) Whole Lotta Love ->8
    [del:1gngw67f]3.1b) "Immigrant Song" 1970 ->6[/del:1gngw67f]

    [del:1gngw67f]3.2 a) Stairway -> 6[/del:1gngw67f]
    3.2b) “Kashmir" 1975 Physical Graffiti->8

    So:
    4a) "Whole Lotta Love" 1969 II
    ---------------- vs.
    4b) “Kashmir" 1975 Physical Graffiti

    Hmmmm ...

    Both quite excellent songs (though neither a favorite). This one comes down to "which song am I more likely to crank to ear-damaging volume when it comes on the radio".

    4a) "Whole Lotta Love"

    This was almost a coin toss for me, but in the end I gave it to the song that was more groundbreaking

    Whole Lotta Love

    4a) "Whole Lotta Love"

    Had to go with this because I fondly remember listening to it with the detachable speakers of my portable FM stereo on either side of my head.

    Kashmir, ftw, please.

    It was Jimmy Page's favorite; he felt it was the best piece of music the band had made. It was more groundbreaking with the mellotron and sitar and for technical aspects like horns and phasing on drums. Back in the day, with headphones on, this song took me places. Way sexier, way trippier than WWL.

    Whole Lotta Love is a not remotely sexy song about sex. It may have the risque lyrics factor going for it but the plagiarism by Plant pushes this song off the podium. And a theremin is not a musical instrument, FFS!

    Very compelling argument.

    He took his favorite song, and collaborated to turn it into that horrible embarrassment of a Puff Daddy song at the end of an utterly shameful Godzilla remake?

    Odd man.

    Yes. That is what I sadly think of when I think of Kashmir.

    -_-

    While Whole Lotta Love, I just remember my mind being blown- I can SEE the music! Where's it going! Come back!
