Default Re: Stairway to Heaven turns 40....

While the song was spoiled for me through overplaying, I'm glad young people are being exposed to one of the best arranged hit singles.

You don't really get "epics" in the Top 40 now - like Stairway, Bohemian Rhapsodym Classical Gas or Macarthur Park ... as for the latter, I never understood how people could be so turned off by a bit of fun melodrama that they'd overlook that fabulous arrangement. Always liked it.
