American Pie. I like Led Zepplin in most other cases but I am sick of that song.

These have gotta be two of the most underservedly overplayed FM radio chestnuts around. Why didn't you also include "Free Bird"?

Damnit, this is tough...but if there was a Free Bird option, I would take it in a heartbeat:p Since there isn't, I'd have to say Stairway to heaven.

American Pie seems neverending whenever I listen to it. At least Stairway has distinguishing parts to it that make it worthwhile to listen to.

American Pie is boring. How can you even compare that to Led Zeppelin? Stairway is infinitely superior.

btw, i have a question: is American Pie dedicated to someone? Like a plane crash or something? I remember reading that somewhere (and the song itself has alot of lyrics like that) but I dont remember the details.

Yes, the &quot;day the music died&quot;, when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper were killed in a plane crash. I believe this is what &quot;the three men I admire most, the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost&quot; is also referring to.

that is correct, the plane they were in was called &quot;american pie&quot; also there are allegories to the beatles, rolling stone, the bible and tons more, its an amazing song.

Both songs are classics in their own right. In fact, I remember when both were introduced.

Those were the days...... cheap gas, wages and beer. No internet, and computers needed punch cards. Had to physically turn the dial on a telephone. 8-track tapes were all the rage.

Even though I love Stairway to Heaven, I gotta go with American Pie.

<< (Not Madonna's version, though.) >>



Agreed. Stuff like that should be illegal.

Seriously.

Poll: American Pie or Stairway to Heaven?--I vote American Pie, it sounds fresher after time. Stairway has seemed to go alittle stale on me.
