Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin


Stairway to Heaven is, of course, an iconic song for many reasons.  It's hard to believe that it is over 40 years old! It was a long song for its time – over 8 minutes!  So I'm not going to put in a YouTube clip for you.



I'm not a huge Led Zeppelin fan – but this song is just so good!  Robert Plant, though, got so sick of his own song in the end that he refuses to sing it and once even paid a radio station $10,000 to never play it again!  The money went to charity.

  1. A classic rock track, Carole. Freebird by Lynrd Skynyrd is my favourite and that is another long track.

  3. Interesting that Robert Plant was that sick of his own song. Occupational hazard I suppose?
