Song 28. Stairway to heaven – Led Zeppelin

Stairway to heaven van Led Zeppelin, de nummer 1 van de Classics op radio 1 van op paaszaterdag.
Ik herinner me het goed, want ik ondernam mijn langste trainingswandeling van 30 km die namiddag en hoorde via de radio van 1 tot 6 uur PM de mooiste klassiekers passeren.

Ik tweette er zelfs over:

Zalig Nog 5 uur stappen met #classics1000 @radio1 #een in de oren de #30km zullen zo voorbij zijn #geertopweg #camino #voorbereiding #nog6dagen #compostela

en enkele minuten later hoorde ik mij vernoemen in het programma, leuke herinnering

Hoewel ik geen hardrock fan of rocker ben, zijn er tocht enkel songs die ik geweldig kan apprecieren zo ook Stairway to heaven.
Waarschijnlijk omdat het zo wat bombastisch is, traag, snel alles door elkaar.

Je mag 8 minuten meeluisteren, want de videoclip is nogal statisch vergeleken met de muziek

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh ooh 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.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, 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 standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really 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.
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.
And it makes me wonder.
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 shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How ev’rything 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 a stairway to heaven.
