Top 10 Led Zeppelin Songs

Top 10 Tuesday Lyriquediscorde

Here we are again. Top Ten Tuesday with another Top Ten Song List, by request. This time its Led Zeppelin getting some Top Ten attention thanks to Jackie’s request. Led Zeppelin has always been one of these Bands on my Music outskirts. They are this huge Rock Band with this huge Rock presence, and I know so many of their Songs, but it wasn’t until I sat down today and started going through them that I realized how many Songs I knew, and loved. Music is ever a surprise to me – in a good way.

When I started picking out Tracks for My Top Ten I started to realize that most of my Favorites have a Film or TV connection. And, most of those “connections” are due to Cameron Crowe. Its no big shock to anyone who knows me that I love Cameron Crowe Movies (and TV) and that I adore how he incorporates Music. His Movies get me in ways few others do, and I get them deeply. Recently, it was his all too short-lived TV Series, Roadies, that I fell hard for. So much of the Music from that show made its way into Playlists and Obsessive Plays by me. Another case of Crowe’s Music influence through film, on the Big Screen, and Small.

There are definitely Crowe influenced Zepplin Songs in this list.

Tori Amos Led Zeppelin Cover

Another gateway to Led Zeppelin is Tori Amos. My first Tori was the Single/EP for “Crucify” which included Covers of Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin. I love all three of the Covers so much. Her version of Zeppelin’s “Thank You” is one of my Favorite Tori Covers, and has made itself on many a Mix, especially ones made for past lovers.

There was also an older brother of a good friend of mine, back when I was in that pre-adolescence to adolescence era. I’d say it was an influential time for me with Music, but there’s honestly never been a time that wasn’t. This older brother though, he was in high school already, a few years ahead of us. He played guitar and smoked a lot of weed.

He had beautiful hair that looked soft to touch, and sometimes he let his sister, my friend, put eyeliner on him. He was in a band and they used to practice in their garage. Every so often we got to watch. She and I would sit on this over-sized couch that smelled like musty laundry, incense, and pot. They would sometimes try to play Zeppelin Songs. They were not good, but I imagined sometimes they were.

    I know my reply is waaaayyy late. However, I cannot go without commenting on Led Zeppelin. As an aside, I remember my father playing Jim Ladd on KMET for me. Ladd could be long winded about what he was playing but he and Rodney Bingenheimer affected me in such positive ways. Anywho, my favorites:

    Rock N’ Roll
    In the Light
    Since I’ve been Lovin’ You
    Achilles’ Last Stand (love the solo in this one)
    When the Levee Breaks (Bonzo is just on fire here)
    Whole Lotta Love
    Kashmir
    No Quarter
    How Many More Times
    Out on the Tiles

    1. Great choices! I don’t remember Jim Ladd well, except that my neighbor growing up mentioned him quite a bit.

      Rodney influenced me, too. So much of KROQ from back then did. I miss when it wasn’t corporate owned with set playlists.

    Yep it like so many others has been changed for the worst. Kevin and Bean made fun of Rodney and Richard Blade. However, if it weren’t for their (and old school KROQ djs) efforts KROQ wouldn’t exist.
