Stairway to Heaven es una de las canciones más famosas de la historia. A veces por las razones equivocadas (ya sea por el supuesto plagio a Spirit o por los mensajes satánicos que "se pueden escuchar" cuando se pone la canción al revés1), pero, en mi opinión, porque es, escuche uno atentamente las letras o no (tienen su sentido, y bastante claro, pero no creo que siempre haya que buscarlo), una canción con cierto poder, evocadora, con cierta maestría.

Todos lo saben, es obra de Jimmy Page y Robert Plant, guitarrista y vocalista de la gran banda Led Zeppelin e incluida en Led Zeppelin IV (o también llamado por muchos nombres como Four Symbols, The Fourth Album, Sticks, ZoSo, Untitled, The Hermit, Runes o IV). Y, sin más, os dejo con la canción y la letra de la misma, que de éso se trataba hoy:


Letra:
There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have
Two meanings

In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are
Misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying
For leaving

In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those
Who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will
Echo with laughter

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa, oh

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean
For the May queen

Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change
The road you're on

And it makes me wonder

Aw, uh, oh

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

(Solo)

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway
To heaven...


1- En cuando a lo de los mensajes satánicos, me quedo con las declaraciones sobre el tema que hizo el ingeniero de sonido Eddie Kramer: "totally and utterly ridiculous. Why would they want to spend so much studio time doing something so dumb?".

    Es y sera siempre un icono del rock, una obra maestra y si tiene algo de satánico, creo que muchos estamos deseando llegar al infierno para seguir escuchando estas canciones.

    Amén, Pai!! Es una maravilla, con la voz alucinante de Mr. Plant y la fuerza de la mejor banda de la historia (al menos por los primeros cinco discos, tampoco vamos a exagerar). A mí, la canción que me pone, pero que me pone de verdad de los Led Zep' es "Since I've been lovin' you", peazo blues que se te mete en vena...qué grande, de hecho voy a ir a escucharla ahora mismo!
