Top 10 Led Zeppelin songs

I'm curious to know which songs make the "top 10" list of most Zep fans. If you do chime in, please restrict yourselves to your top 10 songs - not top 15 and/or favourite albums and/or best concert(s) and/or ...

Thanks.

My top 10:
- Ramble On
- No Quarter
- Nobody's Fault But Mine
- When the Levee Breaks
- Bring It On Home
- Dazed and Confused
- In the Evening
- The Rain Song
- Stairway to Heaven
- Custard Pie

Good list, can't really go wrong here. Mine would be similar, maybe I'd bump Stairway and Dazed for The Lemon Song and In The Light.

  1. Stairway To Heaven
  2. Over the Hills and Far Away
  3. Whole Lotta Love
  4. Black Dog
  5. The Ocean

... even though Zeppelin was always my favorite band, after the first five the rest fall a step or more below, and these five are the only ones I have any desire at all to play on guitar. Each of these has a unique, timeless and immediately identifiable main riff. I also think Stairway To Heaven is easily the best song ever written. It's build-up from start to finish is unequaled. And the solo is one of the best in the history of rock. That song is one of the reasons I took up guitar.

The hard truth is that there is probably 30 - 40 of their songs that are properly top ten material. Some years back I decided to make it easier on myself and allow more than ten songs into my top ten. I do the same with movies. There are probably fifteen bands that I just can't cull some of their songs out of the "Top Ten".

When it comes to songs like Kashmir, Stairway, Whole Lotta Love, et al, being of a certain age and listening to years of "Classic Rock", some of these are just played out (for me). It's unfair, but that's why it's good to have a top ten of 30 or so. I'll never forget circa 1974 at my sisters house in Pismo Beach, slipping on those headphones, and listening to Heartbreaker/Living Loving for the first time. Having older brothers and sisters, I was already blessed with The Beatles and everything else from the sixties / early seventies. But this was .... This was something else. Life changing is probably too dramatic, but Got Damn. That said, it's not often that I will select it/them for a playlist.

Similarly, when I queue Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream into Foobar, more times than not I cull Cherub Rock from the playlist, even though that was THE song that pulled me into the band. Saturday Night Live, it was the sound that I had been searching for without realizing it. So I'll drop the song from the playlist, but there's no way in hell I would categorize it anything less than "Top Ten".

My list is tilted towards B Tracks, probably due to overexposure.

Rock and Roll (Song Remains The Same film version)
The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair
Somethin' Else
Traveling Riverside Blues
Lemon Song
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Well said and understood. "Stairway to Heaven" is definitely played out for me. But it's still a fantastic song.

One of my "go to" bands to listen to is Marcy Playground. Love their stuff. I always skip past "Sex and Candy" though. Great song, just heard it too many times.

I've always felt that "In My Time of Dying" is one of the best interpreted & performed covers ever recorded.

Agreed, amazing what soul could emanate from some kid from Heston. Similarly the Stone's "You Gotta Move", although Mississippi Fred's was still subjectively better.
