Music I Like: Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

I was in college in the early Seventies. How can I not like "Stairway to Heaven"? (And this series of posts is possibly the only one where you get Tex Ritter one night and Led Zeppelin the next.)

Funny story (at least to me): I listen to two stations most of the time, the "oldies" station (usually) and the "classic rock" station. On the latter, "Stairway to Heaven" is always voted the #1 song of all time. The former doesn't play it.

One DJ moved a few years ago from the classic rock station to do a weekend gig on the oldies station. One weekend he said, "Ever since I came here people keep asking me when I'm going to play 'Stairway to Heaven' so hear it is."

He then played "Stairway to Heaven" Neil Sedaka.
