Hotel California has to be one of the most overplayed songs along with Queens big hits. Radio ruined it.

Gimme Free Bird.

Great guitar work. Perfect tempo transitions. Solid lyrics.

Stairway is incredible, but the argument that it's "borrowed" moves it out of the #1 slot.

Hotel is solid. Solo makes that tune. But not at the level of the other 2.

Did you learn to play the duelling solo yet?

they tried to do the same with Freebird and with Stairway, but even the single version of Freebird is almost 5 minutes. And the missing 4 minutes is probably the best part. :) those two songs are 8-9 minute architectures, and it's impossible to edit Stairway without chopping a leg off.

Hotel is over 6 minutes, but it's really just a longer intro and a longer guitar solo over a standard 4m track.

Poiupoiu @Poiupoiu - which version of Freebird: album, single, or some 'best' live version?

considering some 'best' live version of Freebird puts it in #1 spot. The song is built to showcase the triple-headed guitar monster, and when you have King/Rossington/Collins doing whatever feels right...whatever you get is so fucking right.

As much as I lover Stairway, it's not made to showcase Bonham or his unique ability to mix power and groove.

Agreed. I don't even know that Stairway is in my Top 10 Zep songs.
