A Classic Rock Anthem, known as one of the greatest songs of all time

You absolutely cannot think of Led Zeppelin without hearing those first few iconic notes to “Stairway To Heaven“.

Released in 1971, written by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the song was released on what is known as Led Zeppelin IV, the bands fourth studio album. While the melodies range from simple acoustic-like tones, quickly becomes energetic, strong, powerful, and aggressive.

At about eight minutes long, the band takes you on a wild ride, and its hard to not let yourself get lost in the magic that is Pages’ guitar solos, and Plant’s captivating croons and lyrics.

“Stairway to Heaven” was voted #3 in 2000 by VH1 on its list of the 100 Greatest Rock Songs, and was placed at number 31 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of  “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time’.

And she’s buying the stairway to heaven….

 

+Stairway to Heaven lyrics below+

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, 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 misgiven.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.
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.
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?
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 tune 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.
