    I am a Led Zeppelin fan from way back, even though I was born a year or so after they broke up.

    I am fascinated by "Hey, Hey, What Can I Do", which, until 1990, was only available as the B-side to the "Immigrant Song" 45 rpm single (outside the UK, sorry). I recall there was a video on YouTube a while back showing some kittens in viking helmets rowing a boat thru the waves to "Immigrant Song". It was awesome.

    There are too many good Zep songs, but my top 5 would be:

    Kashmir
    When the Levee Breaks (go, Bonzo, go!)
    Ramble On (points for mentioning Gollum and Mordor)
    Immigrant Song (way, WAY too short)
    Hey, Hey, What Can I Do
    Going to California
    Battle of Evermore

    I know, it's 7, not 5, sue me.

    I've got 27 songs rated 5 Stars in my music collection, but I'll pick 5 that are lesser known.

    Animals as leaders - CAFO
    Hurt - Pandora
    Liquid Tension Experiment - Biaxident
    Dream Theater - Erotomania
    Andrea Vadrucci - Super Mario Bros 2 theme (I'm a drummer and former video gamer, so I'm biased towards this stuff)

    Cyndi is a bagpipe compared to Eva!

    Agadoo by Black Lace
    Driving rhythm and sharp witty lyrics make this a classic.

    Cheeky Song by The Cheeky Girls
    Overtly sexual but with a sensual hidden message in the lyrics.

    Barbie Girl by Aqua
    Clever condemnation of consumerism set to wonderfully rich melodies.

    Ebony & Ivory by McCartney and Wonder
    The song that single-handedly ended apartheid

    Shaddap your Face by Joe Dolce
    This classic ballad kept Ultravox's Vienna off the number 1 spot in 1981.

    I heartily recommend them all.
