Kemarin (11/03/2013) saya dapat CD album Led Zeppelin Golden Collection. Ini adalah satu grup musik favorit saya yang sudah saya dengar lagunya sejak duduk di bangku SMP tahun 1983. Ini adalah CD album Led Zeppelin ketiga yang saya miliki setelah Mothership dan Celebration Day. Dua lagu pamungkas terdapat pada ketiga CD tersebut, yaitu Black Dog dan Stairway to Heaven. Khusus album Celebration Day, ini adalah rekaman konser mereka di O2 Arena – London tanggal 10 Desember 2007.
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The band consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. They are widely considered to be one of the most successful, innovative and influential rock groups in history. (Wikipedia)
Jimmy Page was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his charity work in 2005 and Robert Plant was honoured as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for his services to popular music in 2009. The band are ranked number one on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock and Classic Rock’s “50 Best Live Acts of All Time”. They were awarded an Ivor Novello Award for “Outstanding Contribution to British Music” in 1977, as well as a “Lifetime Achievement Award” at the 42nd Annual Ivor Novello awards ceremony in 1997. The band were honoured with the “Best Live Act” prize for their one-off reunion at the 2008 MOJO Awards, where they were described as the “greatest rock and roll band of all time”. The three surviving members (Page, Plant, and Jones) were named as 2012 recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors. (Wikipedia).
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 …
