    After posting my favorites in the other post, I got to thinking about some of the great (and sometimes goofy) lines in Zep songs. Post up with your favorites!
    I'll kick it off with a few:

    "Where's that confounded bridge?"

    "Squeeze my lemon
    'till the juice runs down my leg"

    "When love is pain it can devour you
    But you are never alone"

    Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
    She took my love and walked right out the door
    And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
    I'm gonna give her something like she never had before...HOT DOG

    i figured that out once i posted, thanks though.
    I really cant think of a single bad led zeppelin song, its a shame there are only a few bands as good as them. I might be wrong to some people on here but i put the Rolling Stones in a class with zeppelin, i like all their music too.

    Not Zep, but one of my favorite lyrics (and songs, and artist) of all time:

    Ashes and diamonds
    Foe and friend
    We were all equal in the end.

    The Stones can suck my nuts, and they wouldn't even be good at that if they took out their teeth.

    There's nothing wrong with that song. It's just become something to hate because it's one of their biggest hits. It's still the song that is probably most responsible for bringing in new zep fans year after year.

    It's kind of like the cool thing to hate now, just like a lot of hotrodders now hate the sbc.

    "And as the windshield melts, my tears evaporate. Leaving only charcoal, to defend."

    Nice summary of cold war nuclear feelings... I just had to listen to it now again. First time I heard that I had wierd feelings about it, kinda gives ya chills.

    Yeah, I was talking to the wife about it one day and it had never occured to her that was what the song was about or even that the song title was a reference to it.

    That is my personal favorite Floyd album, and my favorite track off that album.


    jarheadk5:

    Pink Floyd
    Final Cut
    Two Suns In The Sunset


    In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
    Sinking behind bridges in the road
    And I think of all the good things
    That we have left undone
    And I suffer premonitions
    Confirm suspicions
    Of the holocaust to come.

    The rusty wire that holds the cork
    That keeps the anger in
    Gives way
    And suddenly it's day again.
    The sun is in the east
    Even though the day is done.
    Two suns in the sunset
    Hmmmmmmmmmm
    Could be the human race is run.

    Like the moment when the brakes lock
    And you slide towards the big truck
    "Oh no!"
    You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
    And you'll never hear their voices
    "Daddy, Daddy!"
    And you'll never see their faces
    You have no recourse to the law anymore.

    And as the windshield melts
    My tears evaporate
    Leaving only charcoal to defend.
    Finally I understand the feelings of the few.
    Ashes and diamonds
    Foe and friend
    We were all equal in the end.

    Yeah, that song still gives me the willies a little.

    "Paint it Black" my RS hating friends. "Paint it Black"

    As for LZ lyrics -

    " Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear.
    How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
    T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.
    But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah."

    What can I say? I'm a Tolkien fan. :D
    There's actually a few times LZ referrs to LotR in their songs. Very cool. :D

    Walking side by side with death,
    The devil mocks their every step.


    How soft your fields so green,
    Can whisper tales of gore,


    You can deliver me, Lord
    I only wanted to have some fun


    Hey, hey, mama, why you treat me mean
    But that's alright, I know your sisters, too

    Yes, and a damn good one. I seriously doubt we will be thinking about " Killers" or " Strokes" lyrics 25 years from now.:D
