Stairway To Heaven

The greatest rock song EVER.

Whenever I listen to the song “Stairway to heaven” I remember my youth, many parties with friends, long hair and a world where music was number one – we didn’t spend our time with virtual digital worlds but with playing out in the green where we as well celebrate our parties.

Whenever I listen to Stairway to Heaven
it gives me goosebumps again and again!

Today Werner, a friend of mine from Aachen, posted about the cover version from Ann & Nancy Wilson and I saw Robert Plant with “nearly” tears in his eyes.

A little history about this

robert plant - Stairway to HeavenMany people talk about this video and I found that Michael D. Vernon got it to thsaid at Facebook”Picture yourself as a non-cooperative 17 – 18 yr old boy that lead a rock n roll transformation from the standard 2:35 single on the Billboard charts with a bunch of his mates. Within 10 yrs you are riding in your own 727 jet from tour date to tour date where you trash the rooms and do many things to exaggerated excesses just because you are ‘Rock-n-Roll Gods’ and you can….but to imagine that your music would live on strong for another 50 years!!!!???? NO F’ING WAY! Now getting recognized by the President of the United States for your contribution to the Art of Music ……mind boggling. Plus, as I look at Robert’s face while write this….does he look a little bit like Eric Idle? To all of those that choose to play this extra-ordinary video, take note Baby Boomers (grab a hanky) and younger rockers, appreciate why this song has consistently over the years been known as ‘The greatest rock song EVER”……and a nice way to start off the day, especially today.” see at Facebook

Lyrics of Stairway to Heaven

If you like to learn or read the Lyrics ot this wonderful song, here you get this

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-hoo, hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
And she’s buying a stairway to Heaven

And Now What?

Original from the music, have a evening with some friends and let your hair grow long again 😉
