Welcome, lorne

Just one this time, a big one...


  1. No Quarter by Led Zeppelin - you mentioned having an 'unledded' version of this. Here's the original, complete with John Paul Jones's incomparable keyboard work. lyrics | mp3 6.43 MB

  2. Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin - the song that gave howling its name. After hearing it, check this out. lyrics

  3. Misty Mountain Hop by Led Zeppelin - fascinating harmony and rhyme. lyrics

  4. Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin - sounds like Exploder by Audioslave, mostly a function of the rhyme scheme. lyrics

  5. The Battle of Evermore by Led Zeppelin - this is 'alternative Zep' which you should hear if you haven't already. I'm sure I've talked about it heaps. I like the harmony in lines like 'flames from the dragon of darkness', and the use of guitars in the intro. lyrics

  6. Nobody's Fault But Mine by Led Zeppelin - sounds like Bring 'Em Back Alive by Audioslave. I think it's the guitar and bass lines, and something about the intro. lyrics

  7. Rock And Roll by Led Zeppelin - you, too, can be annoyed as hell. I know now that it's the rock'n'roll influence you don't like, so I'm going to put lots and lots of 'alternative Zep' up here. This is not one of them. lyrics

  8. The Boy in the Bubble by Paul Simon - pessimistic, cynical lyrics with a deceptively cheerful sound. lyrics

  9. Gumboots by Paul Simon - 'the cutest, smallest, craziest little song ever'. lyrics

  10. Laid by Matt Nathanson - the song that started it all? The song that made me buy the album, anyway. lyrics

  11. Emit Remmus by the Red Hot Chili Peppers - no, I don't know what the title means either! Note especially the action of treble guitar in the verses. lyrics

  12. Mr Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan - it's the voice, man. lyrics
