First off, neither of those songs are "overplayed". That's one of those things that was true back in the 80's but no classic rock station these days play those songs too often.

As for those 2, I'm voting Stairway, I friggin love that song. It's perfect, the slow build, then Page's killer solo, it's just killer. I mean, so is Free Bird, but not as much.

Speaking of classic "epic" songs, throw Hotel California in there, I loaded my Eagles double album greatest hits onto my iPhone today, hadn't listened to it in a while, but the Eagles documentary has been airing on Showtime recently and I've watched it 3 times, it's GREAT, so I got back into an Eagles mood, damn that song is great.

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..
