Led Zeppelin Remasters Lyrics

Led Zeppelin's 3 disc Remasters Album

Led Zeppelin RemastersI've never really known Led Zeppelin's music. I'm sure I've heard it. If you asked me to name you a song... I'd for sure draw a blank.

I think, if I remember correctly, a Led Zeppelin song came on at work... I asked "Who is this?" Jaws dropped, people asked "Are you serious?" I honestly didn't know who the band was, although they sounded familiar.

Who doesn't know who Jimmy Page is, right? Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham... who are they? Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti, Presence, In Through the Out Door, and Coda? Don't ask me.

Recently, I found out that Zeppelin did Stairway to Heaven. Which seems like everyone should know... I suppose. Even someone who can't name a Zeppelin song. I am more familiar with Eric Clapton's version. Stairway to Heaven has some of the most loved and hated lyrics of all time. This song is epic. The guitar solo alone, which is roughly six minutes into the track, is insanely good and timeless.

Led Zepp is working its way into my music library. I feel that within a few months I will know and recognize most of their hits. I even had friend give me their 3 disc Remasters. Which has been a very enjoyable and education experience. I look forward to learning their music.

Led Zeppelin|Stairway to Heaven Lyrics:

There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have
Two meanings

In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying
For leaving

In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those
Who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will
Echo with laughter

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa, oh

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean
For the May queen

Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change
The road you're on

And it makes me wonder

Aw, uh, oh

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

(Unbelievably insane guitar Solo)

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway
To heaven...
