    They all my Jam!

    Whole Lotta Love
    When the Levee Breaks
    Kashmir
    Stairway to Heaven (grossly overplayed in the 80s)
    Immigrant Song

    I remember exactly my "moment of Consciousness" for LZ.

    It was in late January of 69 and I was wandering through the Yale Bookstore in downtown New Haven, cuz my mom needed to pick up something there. In the font lobby was a display of current albums and this caught my eye:

    I had just heard a cut on the radio and bought it (OK, fine, I had my mother buy it), took it home and palyed in non-stop for about a month - or until my did said 'Enough' (even though he begrudgingly admitted he liked a few of the songs).

    It was right then and there that they entered the Pantheon of Rock Gods, that hitherto had only enshrined the Beatles and the Rolling Stones - not that they weren't plenty of other GREAT bands at the time.

    The story of the making of When the Levee Breaks's iconic drum intro by John Bonham, Rock's best-bar-none drummer. Great video:

    One of favorites for lifting (as in, weights), with a difficult set right when the song takes off.

    I think I would have to go with Levee as well. Every time it comes on the radio, I find myself reaching for the volume knob. Honorable mentions to:
    Hey, Hey, What Can I Do
    Nobody's Fault But Mine
    Since I've Been Loving You
    Whole Lotta Love
    Good Times, Bad Times


    Speaking of the latter, you've gotta love this:

    For me it was always Whole Lot of Love. First heard it in a Disco in Southern Spain in early 1970. Blew me away! Still think Led Zeppelin ll its their top album.

    It all starts with the innovative syncopated beat that John Bonham laid down. Simply other worldly, mezmerizing, genius.

    Not essential at all to their success but it is very interesting that Jimmy Paige had such an interest in LOTR themes.
