whitefang Posted October 22, 2002 Share Posted October 22, 2002 Notice, I didn't say MOST overrated song, as these "Most..." this or that threads never seem to narrow things down. And as one person's candy is another's caca, toes will be stepped on. But that's only half the fun! So, with that, I offer only three... "Stairway to Heaven". Not a bad song, really. Not ALL overrated songs are BAD. Just more has been made of them than they deserve. And THIS one fits the bill. In view of Zep's entire body of work, how this one became so envenerated is beyond me! "Layla". If Duane Allman had lived, he, as did I, would have been boggled by those who celebrate his "great slide work" on this thing. So much far better examples of his slide can be found in so many different tracks! Sounds like he's having trouble seeing the frets! And that second section? Exceeded only by Skynard's live "Free Bird" ending solo in the "Too long, too boring" category. "All Along the Watchtower". LOVE Jimi! LOVE Dylan as well! But, this was never the best example of both. As it's on Jimi's "Electric Ladyland," it is easily outshined by many other selections on that LP. Just LISTEN! Whitefang I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
