No quarter

O melhor do led zeppelin
O melhor do led zeppelin

Close the door, put out the light
No, they won’t be home tonight
The snow falls hard and don’t you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold

They’re wearing steel that’s bright and true
They carry news that must get through, oh
They choose the path where no-one goes
They hold no quarter
They hold no quarter, oh

Walking side-by-side with death
The devil mocks their every step, ooh
The snow drives back the foot that’s slow
The dogs of doom are howling more

They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me and you, oh, oh, oh
They choose the path where no one goes
They hold no quarter
They ask no quarter

They hold no quarter
They ask no quarter
Yeah
Without quarter, quarter, yeah (without quarter)
Without quarter, quarter, quarter
Taking no quarter
Oh, oh, oh (hear the dogs of doom) (no, never quarter)
I hear the dogs of doom are howling more

Compositores: John Paul Jones / Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

John Paul Jones ficou extremamente irritado quando soube que Jimmy e Robert estavam se reunindo sem ele para um projeto chamado No quarter. Ele co-escreveu esta música e a longa introdução em teclado foi um grande destaque seu durante concertos da década de 70. É um grande hit para os fãs, em alguns ‘shows’ a música chega a se estender por 30 minutos.

Ten Years Gone

O melhor do led zeppelin
O melhor do led zeppelin

Then as it was, then again it will be
And though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea
Blind stars of fortune, each have several rays
On the wings of maybe, down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn’t have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest, it’s got so far to go

Changes fill my time, baby, that’s alright with me
In the midst I think of you, and how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody
And really need ’em bad
Did you ever really want somebody
The best love you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby
Did it feel so good
‘Cause it was just the first time
And you knew you would

Through the eyes an’ I sparkle
Senses growing keen
Taste your love along the way
See your feathers preen
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes
Didn’t have to grow
We are eagles of one nest
The nest is in our soul

Vixen in my dreams, with great surprise to me
Never thought I’d see your face
The way it used to be
Oh darlin’, oh darlin

‘I’m never gonna leave you
I never gonna leave
Holdin’ on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin’ on, ten years gone
Ten years gone, holdin’ on

Compositores: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

Uma canção nostálgica sobre um amor perdido no tempo. Na música a mulher faz o cara escolher entre ela ou a música e obviamente ele escolhe a música.

Robert Plant revelou que foi baseado em um acontecimento real de sua vida, ele estava apaixonado por uma mulher, no começo da sua carreia, até que ela chegou para ele e deu o ultimato: ou ela, ou os fãs, eles ainda não tinham fãs, mas ele disse que não podia parar com a música, então ela foi embora.

Achilles Last Stand

O melhor do led zeppelin
O melhor do led zeppelin

It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no?Oh, the fun to have
To live the dreams we always had
Oh, the songs to sing
When we at last return again

Slipping off a glancing kiss
To those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss
The devil’s in his holeOh, to sail away
To sandy lands and other days
Oh, to touch the dream
Hides inside and never seen, yeah

Into the sun, the south, the north
At last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitment fell
In pieces on the ground

Oh, to ride the wind
To tread the air above the din
Oh, to laugh aloud
Dancing as we fought the crowds, yeah

To seek the man whose pointing hand
The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path
That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring
In celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat
As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

Days went by when you and I
Bathed in eternal summer’s glow
As far away and distant
Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain
Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains
Sleeping now to rise again

Wandering and wandering
What place to rest the search?
The mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

For the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh

For the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Compositores: James Patrick (jimmy) Page / Robert Anthony Plant

Robert estava com o tornozelo quebrado apos um acidente de carro, mas precisa gravar esta música, ele se envolveu tanto no projeto que por pouco não perdeu completamente o movimento do pé.

Kashmir

O melhor do led zeppelin
O melhor do led zeppelin

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
Stars fill my dream
I’m a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
Sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed

Talk in song in tongues of lilting grace
Sounds caress my ear
There are not a word I heard could I relate
Story was quite clear

Oh
Oh
Oh yeah I been flyin’
Love oh ain’t no denyin’, no
Oh, ooh yea, I been flyin’
Mama, mama, ain’t no denyin’, no denyin’

All I see turns to brown
As the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand
As I scan this wasted land
Try to find, try to find what I feel

Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
Like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again
Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin’ through Kashmir

Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear
Oh
OhWhen I’m on, when I’m on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah

Tryin’ to find, tryin’ to find where I been yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I’m down
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I’m down
Ooh, let me take you there

Compositores: John Bonham / Robert Anthony Plant / James Patrick (Jimmy) Page

Robert estava dirigindo pelo Saara e observou que ao longo da estrada, ninguém passava além de um homem montado em um camelo. Esse cenário foi a inspiração para a letra da música.

Stairway to Heaven

O melhor do led zeppelin
O melhor do led zeppelin

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
Oh oh oh oh 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 misgiving

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 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 a stairway to Heaven

Compositores: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

Keith Moon, baterista do The Who, disse a Jimmy Page que a banda dele iria voar como um balão de chumbo. Daí o nome “zepelim de chumbo”, lead zeppelin. Depois Page tirou o “a” para que os fãs do grupo não pronunciassem “lid” – som que lead tem quando significa liderança

Quem morreu no Led Zeppelin?

 Bonham morreu sufocado no próprio vômito após beber o equivalente a 40 doses de vodka.

Porque o Led Zeppelin acabou?
