Definitely "Freebird" for me.

Has to be the "Play it pretty for Atlanta" version from their live album, "One More From The Road" though.

The piano solo/break about 3 or 4 minutes in always reminds me of Red Sovine. Sounds like it came from one of his songs.

i hear Stairway to Heaven at least once every night.  I am always shocked when Freebird is played it not played to often on the station I listen to.

Seriously though, if you haven't seen that doc on the Eagles, watch it, it's VERY well done. The fact that they actually had audio from on stage from their final show before they broke up, with Felder and Frey basically saying to each other between songs "When this show is over I'm going to fucking kill you" is just killer shit..


+1

Great show. I liked the Eagles before I watched that, but they were a little before my time. After watching that I had to go back and listen to their entire catalogue.

Stairway's the better song top to bottom. Freebird is mostly about the guitar solo at the end.

Stairway is a great song, from top to bottom. Freebird is a good (not great) song, with a KILLER guitar solo / finisher. Really, one of the best solos/finishes in rock.

I'll give my choice as it relates to my taste in wrestling. I'm a huge Snuka mark. Snuka was a good (not great) wrestler, with a killer finisher. So it should come as no surprise which song I like better overall.

Freebird.

Interesting comparison between Snuka and Freebird. Zeppelin is one of my favorite bands. Skynyrd isn't far behind. As for the two songs, I prefer Freebird.

This is my favorite version of Freebird-it's 1975, in the UK for the "Olde Grey Whistle Test" with just Rossington and Collins on guitar (Ed King left the band earlier in the year). I think it's much cleaner than with 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LK-8XBD0m3I

NOTE-The Freebird version begins at minute 29-it's the full show.

And here's where Zeppelin stole Stairway to Heaven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5uMQDlKn8g

Good call. Traffic was great.
