LED ZEPPELIN: Top 50 at 55 according to Mojo

With this year being the 55th anniversary of the formation of Led Zeppelin, writers of England's Mojo magazine have compiled what they feel are the band's "50 Greatest Songs."

"Kashmir," off their sixth album, 1975's Physical Graffiti, tops the list. "In the Evening," off their final album, 1979's In Through the Out Door, bookends the list at 50.

“‘Kashmir’ was written from my angle. It was written on the road to Tan-Tan in southern Morocco, just off the Atlantic coast. And it’s a place where your mind can really dance and where your imagination is way open. After a while, all the stuff you’ve ever thought about is gone and you got this whole different place that’s giving you a sort of door into a whole different you.”

Led Zeppelin 2 and Physical Graffiti yielded the most songs with nine each. They were followed Led Zeppelin 3 and with eight each; their self-titled 1968 debut with seven; Houses of the Holy with six; Presence with two; and In Through the Out Door with one.
