The Ocean was the first song I remember hearing that just blew me away. Awesome tune.Way back when, I recall that my drum instructor described Zeppelin's "The Ocean" as 4/4 with 7/8 intervals or something along those lines. I've always liked the groove of that track.
I don't think a composition is necessarily improved or hampered by its time signature. It's just one of many ingredients that contribute to a song's recipe.
