The lady we all know…..”Stairway To Heaven” (1971)

Stairway To Heaven – Led Zeppelin (1971) HQ 2014 Audio Remaster HD Video

“Stairway To Heaven” was released on Led Zeppelin’s fourth studio album, Led Zeppelin IV (also known as the Four Symbols, The Fourth Album, Untitled, Runes, The Hermit, and ZoSo) in the winter of 1971.

What is there to be said about “Stairway To Heaven”? Suffice it to say it’s maybe the most popular classic rock song of all time….the cornerstone of classic rock. This video features the 2014 Deluxe Edition Remaster uploaded in lossless audio….you need to listen to it in HD to get not only the best picture, but the best sound.

I finished my first Led Zeppelin video a few months back, but it’s still not available to be played….it’s a bummer ’cause I think that video is pretty good and I’d love to share it. Finally gave up waiting for that one, and decided to make another….this time for another Led Zeppelin warhorse. Was able to push this one over the line since the weather during my time off from work hasn’t been cooperating. The video isn’t quite right as the fast edits towards the end are a bit muddled, but it was one of those sections where I throw so much in that it’s difficult to get timing right and many renders fail to pick up all the components during these type sections. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the effort…..THANKS AS ALWAYS FOR WATCHING!

As always HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art contributed to this new art….THANK YOU!!!!

Special thanks to:
Johann Mynhardt – Commercials / film Director (amazing songbird clip!) that I’ve featured in a couple/three vids!

[Lyrics]
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, and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
