Best Led Zeppelin Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 In the Light

The dark opening, the heavy riff, the buildup, the otherworldly guitar sequences, capped by an ending of indescribable and stunning freedom-epitomizing guitar playing make for the greatest song of all time. Led Zeppelin's best moment

This song is top 10 material for me! 55 is just absurd. Of course, Led Zeppelin had so many epic songs that it's hard to put any anywhere. That's why lists like these are so controversial.

Above and beyond anything this band has ever done. As RObert Plant said "In The Light is our finest moment. " - willsinn

This song is, by far, one of their finest achievements! It is the best rock ballad ever written!

42 Tea for One

Have to agree simply amazing, check out Joe Bonamassa's cover possibly as good if not better.

Simply Amazing! Page's guitar sings throughout the whole song and plants vocal is amazing: not to forget Bonzo and Jonesy. My favourite song on Presence.

Love the meaning, love the mood, it just traps you inside its universe

Easy top 10

43 That's the Way

Brilliant, this and Going to California are their best all acoustic songs

For those who really know the entire collection, this could be in the top 10-15

Top 20 for sure. Come on people!

Vastly underrated. Signature drumming from Bonham,great riff from Page,solid bass from Jones,and soaring vocals from Plant. Classic Zep. Should be top 10.

45 Your Time is Gonna Come

Bob is angry with someone here. This is never a favourite of anyone but it's one of mine. I like the change of drum patterns each time Bob sings the song title.

Why number 50? This song is arguably better than "Black Dog"!

Should be higher. Tremendous ending. - zxm

Another very underrated song

46 All My Love

Robert Plant and John Paul Jones really took led zeppelin to a whole new level this song. I was really surprised when I found out that Jimmy Page didn't write this song along with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones.
R.I.P Karac

This should be on top 3, When I first heard this song I feel the beauty and sadness of this song. What a masterpiece

A great song rom the vastly underrated In Through the Out Door album. The whole album makes me wish that John Paul Jones had been given more opportunities for songwriting throughout Zeppelin's history. The song is a masterpiece, with every instrument laying down a perfect foundation for Plant's perfect singing.

In my opinion the best song of led zeppelin. this is such a low place for it

47 Traveling Riverside Blues

This has to be the best song ever written, way to low. Listen to the guitar and tell me this song isn't awesome. You can't.

I can't believe this wasn't even on the list! By far, greatest Zep song ever!

Should definitely be in the top twenty. Probably 'cause it isn't so popular. If more people knew about this tune, it'd be waaay higher up. Really shows a different side of them, out of the dozens they have.

I want a slice of this custard pie. - FearlessFreep

The fact that a song this good is number 44 proves how good Zep is

Love physical graffiti

49 Down by the Seaside

I was surprised there were no comments for this song... Apart from me... I listened to this song and instantly became the fan to the phenomenon called led Zeppelin... Great chorus.. Guitar... 5/5 from me...

The song is beautiful and soulful. It's sad that this song is so low in the list. Definitely on my Led Zeppelin playlist and a song that is close to the tempo set by 'Stairway to Heaven'.

It's hard to choose the best song of Led Zeppelin but I decided that Down by the Seaside is my favorite. I love the music especially.

One of the best Led Zeppelin songs Ever

51 In the Evening

Very original introduction. Awesome through and through. It is a song to sit back and chill to. This should be higher on the list.

Very original intro with an outstanding solo.

Great song to listen to while on the highway driving at night. One of my favorites.

Should be much higher on the list.

52 The Lemon Song

One of, if not, the coolest Led Zeppelin song. The classic blues feeling and great vocals make this very top ten worthy, even though I would rate many zeppelin songs at the same level because they each carry something different, not one song is similar to another, that is the beauty of Led Zeppelin. This song was recorded live in studio, without any editing, and considering that john paul jones improvised throughout the song, simply perfection.

The biggest error on the list. Absolutely a top 5 classic!

I should have quit you, along time ago...

The ultimate Led Zeppelin bass song!

Paul jones best bassline..

53 Out on the Tiles

I love this song its one of the best led zeppelin songs it should be way way higher then 51

Thumbs of for the worst song of Led Zeppelin! Ok its not the worst one but it's the lower one on the list lo

This is not a normal Zep song. High energy. No story. Just straight fun rock. Almost a pop vibe. Underrated. - kpopcraze

Outh On the Tiles

54 For Your Life

Whoa, number 63? This is my second favorite of all time.

Top song,favourite song on presance

55 Celebration Day

Best led zeppelin song. Just love the guitar. Better on song remains the same

56 South Bound Saurez

Definitely not their best song - I'd chose many others beforehand. However, this one's got some of the most vital and distinguished performances Plant had to offer in his latter years with Zeppelin. His vehement phrasing is just catchy. Page's rhythm playing sounds well-timed, yet relaxed and Jonesy's piano passages perfectly add to the song's uplifting timbre. To me, it captures the optimistic spirit the band would regain after their disastrous '77 tour and before/within their Tour over Europe '80.
Besides, some

57 Dancing Days

Robert Plant's voice at its best. Extremely underrated song. I had to pick one song and I when straight to this one. For what reasons do I think this one is the best in my book? Because of Plant's vocals and Page's unorthodox guitar melodies. Give it a good listen. You'll love it.

If there was ever a song that best captured that feeling of summer - this is it.

I really love this song the guitar is such a great sound and fits with the song so perfectly

58 I'm Gonna Crawl

another song that a lot of people overlook, it is a love song like no other. Robert Plant's lyrics are so deep and the slow tempo is just too perfect! the last ten seconds are very emotional to me cause Robert says his final line "Im gonna crawl... " then its followed by John Paul Jones' beautiful mellotron, this is the very last song on their last studio album and although the ending is amazing, it just doesn't feel right for led zeppelin's ending.
R.I.P John Bonham

Great combination of Zeppelin's classic sound with an orchestra. Very underrated.

Another of Zeppelin's blues songs. Again, awesome.

A hidden gem on In Through the Out Door. Zep at their bluesy best. Some of Plant's best vocals.

59 Bron-Yr-Aur

My favourite acoustic song ever. The magic that song has is beyond me.

A phantastic piece for acoustic guitar, a completely underrated gem, I cannot believe so few people appreciate it.

My favorite, love this instrumental!

So lovely

I love this song! I'm always surprised that'll doesn't get many accolades. Not their best, but a top 20.

Why nobody vote for this one? I mean it can't be on the top but it's not the "worst" :O

A song that makes me very happy!

Killer Tune.
