My Favourite Part: 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 forest will echo with laughter

Stairway to heaven….. rock and roll’s major epiphany that a “shy and poetic” (Rolling Stones) song can bring a revolution that changed the way we look at rock and roll. With its erratic changes, semi -medieval tone, switch from acoustic to a heavy electric guitar extravaganza, this 8 minute of rock fantasy has created history….. I should point out that the lyric of the song is not the main driving factor to be this popular and loved. If somebody said, “If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now, It's just a spring clean for the May Queen.” I would say, “It is not just a spring clean, I would take out my shotgun……probably there is a skunk or something in my bush, and if it’s a deer, even better……..” The point is, the song is a national anthem for people who live in the kingdom of rock and roll. If you do not know the words to Stairway to Heaven, you better learn it and get that air mike thing going on in the shower or in your room. You have to sing it once to know its charisma. Long live rock and roll. For those about to rock I salute you…………

The fact that this song may not mean anything at all is also a possibility one fan must be ready to accept. After all we must understand the era this piece was written in, an age of where there was huge political unrest not only in America but in the world, technologicxal advances into the latter part of the 20th century, add all these new innovations, societal values, and political governance, mixed with a person who lived in this world's frustrations, and on top of that with ten hits of acid...and you may come up with a song like stairway to heaven. but it is not entirely without its meaning, though hard to interpret and analize word for word, its simply a song for striving through any unrest one goes through life, and yes that is the cornier versiono f it. Like pink floyd said, it is a rock n roll anthem regardless, and i believe everyone has their own version, that's the great thing.

The lyrics recall the bumbling efforts of one Erma Rees-Gwynn, a divorcee and aspiring contractor, to build a three-story deck--with a stairway leading up from the garden--at the rear of a castle that guitarist Jimmy Page owned in Wales. Presumably meant satirically, but one never knows. When played in reverse the lyrics are a paean to Satan. Que stupido, you say. Compared to what? It's about drugs. Just like every other rock song. Plant had this bimbo girlfriend, see, and she took his Visa card and went to the mall, and got the idea of buying the escalators. Another satire. Unfortunately, that's about as funny as it gets. "A bustle in your hedgerow" refers to menstruation, and when taken in conjunction with the reference to "the May Queen" signifies a woman's coming of age. Plant has denied this, but he's obviously unfamiliar with semiotics. Have a seat, Bob. We know what you wrote. Now let us explain what you meant. --CECIL ADAMS Source: http://www.straightdope.com/columns/030425.html

The Lyrics Interpreted By Michael Klassen 1. Erma Rees-Gwynn, a Welsh divorcee intent on starting her own carpenter contracting business. She was recommended (some say as a joke) by the castle's previous owner, actor Richard Harris, who fled to the Bahamas to avoid the taxman. 2. This is a bit of Plant's irony. In other words if it didn't glitter, it probably wasn't worth much. Erma and her assistants reportedly broke and scratched a lot of valuables carrying lumber through the residence. 3. This means "building" a stairway to heaven, or, more likely, buying the materials for the stairway. Erma was contracted to build a deck in back of Page's castle, three stories high. The plans were for a 2nd floor landing, and steps leading up from the back vegetable patch. Plant once described Lelawcge-an-bryn as "heaven." The staircase when completed would be a stairway to view heaven if you climbed up it, or going down, a stairway to carrots and peas. 4."Foreclosure." The small Welsh town in the district had only one hardware store in the area, and the owner was on a picnic with his family. Erma complained to Jimmy about not being able to get screw nails. So Jimmy called a couple of local aldermen he had in his back pocket, so they could get the damn store open. The store owner soon received the politicians' threats, and cut short his picnic. 5. In order the secure the landing at the second floor, Erma's crew had to enter Jimmy's so-called "Guitar Room." The sign on the wall said "Keep the F*ck Out - Everyone!" These words don't have two meanings, do they? Well, Erma let herself in anyway. In fact, only two double-necked Gibsons could be found in the room, out of Page's reputed collection of 75 guitars. No, this was his Occult Room, full of red satin furnishings and things with horns on them. 6. Reportedly Jimmy was out on his property, singing in his favorite tree, when he saw Erma's helper hanging out the Guitar Room's window. His berserk ranting ("misgiven thoughts") could be heard in the next county. 7. West of Page's property, beyond a neighbour's forested grove, there was a coal-burning power plant. Apparently the tons of sulphur-rich deposits pouring from its stacks disheartened Plant. One day Percy got pretty inebriated, and schemed that they should all protest until the plant shut down. Why not get all the girls, the other lads, and large-fisted manager Peter Grant out blocking their gate? "Great idea," one of the girls responded, "but how are we going to keep the stereo going, or even have hot baths without power?" This comment silenced Plant's protest. 8. Jonesy was the true all round musician of the group. Before Led Zeppelin the bassist/keyboardist extraordinaire wrote and arranged some of Lulu's best work, including "To Sir With Love." Whilst up at Page's castle he tried to form a little choir he wished to call the Zeppettes. Singing careers could've meant a "new day" for the girls, but none could carry a tune. The neighbours watched them rehearse in vain, hence the laughter echoing in the forest. 9. It's likely Plant spend as much time wondering about things as it took for him to write this line. 10. It's said a lot of clothes were found in strange places after their infamous Victorian dress-up parties. 11. The "May-Queen" was Maytag's laundromat-sized washer/dryer combo ordered in to handle hotel-sized loads of laundry being done at Page's castle. Jimmy was promised a money-back warranty on the set if he wasn't satisfied. The "two paths" were whether to keep them or return. The warranty gave him time to change the road he was on, you see. 12. This was one of the worst hangovers Plant had ever felt. 13. Jonesy was going back to London and asked Plant to come along. 14. Actually, your stairway, and the whole damned sundeck laid on the ground. A spring torrent ripped through Great Britain that year, and destroyed Erma's shoddy work. 15. Jonesy and Plant hit the road in John Paul's Stutz Bearcat. By coincidence, they came across Erma waving a flashlight, trying to hitch out of Lelawcge-an-bryn County. After the sundeck fiasco she gave up on carpentry, and was leaving for a cousin's residence in King's Cross. "Everything still turns to gold," she promised, boasting ten thousand pounds profit on the Page job alone. 16. A sarcastic bit of advice from Percy to the Zeppettes: just keep practicing, girls. 17. Plant decided to be a rock, if not a lump of clay, and stay home with his wife and family until the next tour. 18. Last heard from, Erma was in the Bahamas. "And she's buying a ticket to Nassau."
