Don't get me wrong, I love Stairway to Heaven, but I think I prefer this.
I'd like input from you musicologists out there. Did Led Zeppelin ripoff Spirit? Maybe they ripped off Bach? Similarities between several musical pieces: I don't think Jimmy Page copied anything specifically. I play guitar (badly), but I can think of many instances where chord patterns, phrasing, and fills are similar across songs. There are only so many notes to work with after all. This lawyer dude does a little Rambling On about the specifics around musical copyright law, but if you skip to 4:10 you'll here him pick apart the notes in Led Zep's "Stairway to Heaven" and Spirit's "Taurus" as well as some other tunes. If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now.
Stairway to Heaven, generally acclaimed as one of the great rock and roll songs of all time; a rousing anthem. In this 2012 rendition at the Kennedy Center, we see it performed by Heart. A rousing version. Watch for the Obama's and Yo Yo Ma as they rock out!!!
Keep watching until the end. There are three songs played. Jimmy Page likes it.
