    Hey that was my first impression of the album!  It was either the levee or four sticks.

    The Battle of Evermore
    I remember having a "Stairway to Heaven" dance when I was in Jr High.....would have been 1982 or so.

    I also remember listening to STH backwards in my sunday school class at church to hear Satan.
    There has to be more to this story than just that snippet?!?
    There were a few songs that we listened to.  I'm pretty sure Mr. Crowley was one also.

    But yes we did play Dungeons and Dragons as a group at our associate minister's place.  The congregation was not happy about that.

    How does someone who played D&D pick The Battle of Evermore as the weakest link?!?

    I love how this album is making everyone say “What? How could you vote for [song]? Heresy!”

    Then reply wth “Says the person who voted for [song].”  :lol:

    It's only gonna get tougher too.

    I'm trying to be objective when I make my selection, but even then- emotions aside- it's tough. Stairway to Heaven is not going to survive the exercise and- as one of the most recognized and infamous rock songs ever- I'm sincerely not sure if that is right or not?

    I'm not knocking anyone for a 1st round Stairway vote either- I'm thinking it is going to reach a point where I might have to vote it off.

    Shucks.

    Unfortunately, the songs on Side A are overplayed...kind of like Ten.

    All eight songs are amazing. I voted "objectively" (please note the quotes - I couldn't think of better word) and considered the "popularity" (again, quotes used liberally) of all the songs. Heck, "Four Sticks" was the only song from the album omitted from that Remasters box set from about 30 (!) years ago.

    It will indeed be tougher moving forward. However, I never need to hear "Black Dog" or "Rock and Roll" again. Again, I can draw the Ten  comparisons here.

    I dunno if one side is better than the other but I'll say this: This is one of the albums that suffers (to a small degree) when it's listened to on CD (or now digitally) compared to vinyl the way it was intended. Stairway To Heaven ending Side A of the vinyl works so perfectly. But on CD, the transition from the epicness of Stairway to the...in my opinion..."silliness" of Misty Mountain Hop is pretty awkward.

    BOE was such a fun song, still is and  agree w Four Sticks being a rockin song.  That is why I chose Misty Mountain.  Weakest song of the bunch.

    Hey McGruff listen to Whole lotta love from a good source with headphones on.  The recording, if good, should excite you.
