30-Day Song Challenge: Day 02

Day 2 of the 30-Day Song Challenge asks the question what is “your least favorite song”.  And what comes to mind is Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven. As a matter of opinion, my opinion, anything by Led Zeppelin and “classic” rock music in general.

  1. I would say Justin Bieber with the song baby something but that’s just me 😛
    Can the songs from two different days be the same?

    I don’t particularly care for “Stairway to Heaven” either. In fact, Led Zeppelin doesn’t do much for me. The only songs I’ve enjoyed are probably “Tangerine”, “D’yer Mak’er”, and “Whole Lotta Love”. Other than that, I’ve never really been able to embrace Led Zeppelin.

    • Amber thanks for not being “particularly caring” for “Starway to Heaven”. I thought I might have been “starting something” (oh-oh, a Michael Jackson moment. Another artist I never really liked. But that is for another challenge. 🙂

  3. Haha, didn’t quite know Stairway to Heaven was such a polarizing song.

    I agree with Slithzerai. My least favorite song: the latest JB release, replacing the last JB release as my least favorite. Oh manufactured music (and child exploitation).

    • I think you have hit it on the head Diva. I cannot really say because I am not familiar with any of Justin Bieber’s songs. But I will take your word for it.

  4. Could have that effect when a song is too well known. For me it’s Immigrant Song and Tangerine is good too. According to Last.fm it’s my 103rd most listened group so I could probably say the same.

    • I guess I am down on Led Zeppelin because the music seems sooooo “old”. Actually there was a moment in 1972 I think, that I liked Led Zeppelin. Kinda glad those days are over.

  5. I haven’t heard that song yet and will probably reserve judgement till I do. Keep it up!
    RIP Gil Scott Heron… I know you know he passed away. 😦
    Have a Blessed Memorial Day!

  8. I like Led Zeppelin (and Michael Jackson) but I can’t listen to them all the time. “Stairway to Heaven” is my least favorite of their songs for quite a different reason. I went to high school with my husband, and during his sophomore year, his best friend was killed in an auto accident. He had been learning to play guitar and “Stairway” was one of the songs he liked to play; the school newspaper reprinted the lyrics in his obituary. Now neither of us likes to listen to the song: Erik because it reminds him of his friend, and me (since I never met his friend) because it makes me think of Erik being sad.
