Best Led Zeppelin Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 What is and What Should Never Be

I started looking for this song after I didn't see it in the top 20 I was shocked and saddened! Granted, the sentimental value attached to this song for me personally is what makes it my favorite Led tune, but damn, 38!? This song is so beautifully crafted. Plant's delivery is haunting and comforting all at once and god damn man, when the back and forth guitar riff starts up after the mid song pause... It's like magic! One of Page's best and most memorable in my opinion. Most of the songs that sit higher on this list are amazing as well, but this song should definitely be higher, at least top 15! It's incredible and a must listen for any Zeppelin fan or music fan in general!

This is one of those really dynamic songs by Zeppelin that many people don't know about. Turn it up loud and enjoy!

This song with out a doubt should be in the top 5, it is a very underrated song! This is the type of song that anybody can jam too from start to finish. This is personally one of my favorite songs and should definitely be higher
On the list!

Uh ok, this needs to be top 10!

This song is a classic
its gotta be higher up

So surprised this song is so low. I feel like it's one of their more radio exposed songs as well. Anyways, like much of all Physical Graffiti, this song blew me away the first time I heard it. So catchy and so easy to groove to. Definitely prefer it over much of the Top 10. It's just a classic.

come on guys this song absolutely rocks!

This is one of Robert Plant's favorite Zeppelin songs, it goes by it self.

43 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

44 Custard Pie

I want a slice of this custard pie. - FearlessFreep

Love physical graffiti

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

45 That's the Way

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

Maan, let me tell you somethin'.

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

This song speaks to one´┐Ż's heart

46 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

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.

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.

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.

The rock moment gets me so hyped

50 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.

51 Friends

Should be a bit higher in my opinion

The most evil sounding song in existence

In my top 20 for sure

So underrated

52 For Your Life

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

53 Gallows Pole

This wonderful song is unreasonably low on the list. Great ballad! Or maybe it's just me, loving it for the sad lyrics?

I'm actually offended that this song is number 43 and Kashmir Immigrant Song and Achilles Last Stand are so high.

Not even close to their best songs, but deserves to be ranked a lot higher

One of their best song

54 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..

55 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

56 Celebration Day
57 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

58 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.

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

Ranked very low definitely a top 30 song.

59 Hots on for Nowhere

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.

60 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.
