12/02/2005: Thought for the Day:
The lyrics to "Stairway to Heaven" are horrible, nothing more than nonsense words enlivened by cliche. If I ever wrote "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold," my editor would cancel my contract. Just because "Stairway to Heaven" still turns up as the number one rock song of all time doesn't mean it's any good. Bear in mind that "Car 54, Where Are You?" is still in syndication and Republicans still keep getting elected to the White House.
--Jimmy Gutterman [on the plethora of surveys naming "Stairway to Heaven" as the greatest rock song of all time]
