Led Zeppelin: Stairway to heaven

En esta oportunidad tenemos el agrado de presentarle a una de las mejores bandas de rock de la historia: Led Zeppelin.

Voz: Robert Plant
Guitarra: Jimmy Page
Bajo y teclados: John Paul Jones
Batería: John Bonham

La importancia de Zeppelin en la evolución del rock es gigantesca. En pocos años lograron crear composiciones impactantes que influenciaron a miles de músicos. Sus presentaciones en vivo pasaron a la historia debido a la gran capacidad de improvisación que nunca dejó de asombrar a los seguidores de la banda.
La muerte del baterista John Bonham el 25 de septiembre de 1980 marcó el fin de una época dorada. Los miembros restantes decidieron que no podían seguir sin él.
A continuación, la canción más conocida de Led Zeppelin: Stairway to heaven.

There´s a lady who´s sure all that
glitters is gold
and she is buying a stairway to heaven.
And when she gets there she knows
if the stores are all closed,
with a word she can get what she came for.

And she´s buying a stairway to heaven.

There´s a sign on the wall
but she wants to be sure
cause you know sometimes words have
two meanings.
In a tree by the brook there´s a songbird
who sings sometimes
all of our thoughts are misgiven.

And it makes me wonder.

There´s a feeling i get when i look
to the west
and my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts i have seen rings of smoke
through the trees
and the voices of those who stand looking.

And it makes me wonder.

And it´s whispered that soon if we all
call the tune
then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those
who stand long
and the forests will echo with laughter.

And It makes me wonder.

If there´s a bustle in your hedgerow
don´t be alarmed now.
It´s just a spring clean for the may-queen.
Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
there´s still time to change the road you´re on.

Your head is humming and it won´t go
in case you don´t know.
The piper´s calling you to join him.
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know
your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
our shadow´s taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
the tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll.

And she´s buying the stairway to heaven.

Grossísima banda, una de las mejores de la historia.

Creo que el mejor momento para reflejar la importancia de Stairway to Heaven se da en "Wayne's World" cuando en una tienda de guitarras, Wayne agarra una y empieza a tocar la intro de "Stairway..." y el vendedor le señala un cartel "Prohibido tocar Stairway to Heaven".
