It was voted in 2000 by VH1 as the #3 song on its list of “Greatest Rock Songs” and landed the #31 spot on Rolling Stone magazine’s “Greatest Songs of All-Time” list. Written by Robert Plant (lyrics) and guitarist Jimmy Page (melody) Stairway to Heaven is not only Led Zeppelin’s signature song, it may well be the most beloved rock song of all-time. Stairway to Heaven was the most requested song on FM radio in the 1970s. By 1975, because of public demand for Stairway to Heaven, the band almost always saved it as a concert-ender. The greatest rock song ever?
