They too were repelled by certain Zepplin's lyrics.At the same time, I instinctively knew that these guys were hugely unique and talented.In my humble opinion, YES, Stairway to Heaven is a masterpiece, with deep and enduring meanings, as well as offering practical advice for improving your life.And, as Robert Plant once expressed to a concert audience, STH is truly "A Song of Hope."The words to this Led Zepplin song, "Stairway To Heaven" has always been shrouded in mystery and that for several generations.So this is a woman accustomed to getting what she wants, even when she arrives in heaven.Anyone who was part of the London glitterati scene in the late sixties/early seventies knew immediately the lyrics referred to Lady Somerset Belenoff, aka The Witch of Glamis Castle.You are thinking and engaged in the composition and possible meanings.That being said, some meanings embedded in this song became obvious to me in the mid 1970s.
Why else would the song say, "when she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed, with a word she can get what she came for?
Marianne Faithful said Lady Belenoff was the most beautiful woman she had ever seen but that she possessed a most terrifying beauty.
In her book, Taller than our Souls, Margaret Eton describes Belenoff and Page as occult rivals though they also respected one another.
For example, the word 'Book of love' on the song 'Rock n Roll', or the last song of the album 'When levee Breaks'. This thread is full of people with different backgrounds and mindsets.
Because there were same words on the song 'American Pie', too. One thing you have in common, in greater or lesser degree, is a degree of interest.
