Karras --- 5 years ago -

Both similar in that they are long, beginning, and middle are slow then the ending starts with power chords and thundering drums.

My vote is Stairway because of the slow build. Still tough call because Brian May's guitar and Roger Taylor's drum is almost as kick arse as Page/Bonham. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Stairway. 

DVaz --- 5 years ago -

Stairway, but Rhapsody is epic as well. 

fuzz81 --- 5 years ago -

You're so vanilla soup. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

Queen, always- there will always be only one Freddie Mercury- 

Prolix Raconteur --- 5 years ago -

Stairway to Rhapsody remix 

TinktheSprite --- 5 years ago -

It's a toss up. You can't chose between greatnesses. (I just just made that word up) 

GypsySoul --- 5 years ago -

Stairway for sure. 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

Queen all the way 

FANCY PANTS --- 5 years ago -

I cannot choose! I love them both. Each song brings back great memories for me. 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

Stairway. It just brings back memories of my younger days. 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

Mercury vocals 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

unbelievable. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 5 years ago -

Freddie had some pipes alright. Crazy talented. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

so sad he died so young. Gay men were dying everywhere at the time- I lost a lot of friends- all talented, intelligent sweet souls. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

Led Zeppelin of course. 

Karras --- 5 years ago -

Gay men were dying everywhere at the time

Why? 

DVaz --- 5 years ago -

Why?

AIDS did not have much of a treatment regimen back then. 

voice of reason --- 5 years ago -

You're so vanilla soup.



my guess is soup could never side with the gay mercury. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Did you know vanilla ice cream is still the best seller? 👌 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

This is a fabulous voice: the guy singing took over for Steve Perry of Journey. He's just FABulous in his range and clarity, almost as good as Steve, who is the best. FM can't compare IMO: :)

Why?

To answer this question, you must first understand the epidemic. And Reagan.
And Jerry Falwell. And Reagan's communication director Pat Buchanan.
And Dr. Koop.

But, I suspect you will believe the revisionist history instead of the facts.

Reagan was horrible in many ways, but incredibly horrific to the gay community. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

OH come on Jams, that's the first time I heard of Reagan being to blame for the AIDS epidemic. 

Not KU --- 5 years ago -

Highway Star! Deep Purple. 

The Mark --- 5 years ago -

Reagan treated AIDS like any other unknown illness. He wasn't all touchy feely about it which upset a few people. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

I just think back then, no one was saying or doing much. People were shocked, scared and put off by it. Who did anything really then? It's easy to look back NOW and say why didn't they......and we could say the same about a lot of things including rape and sexual assaults and other things, mental disorders, cancer, you name it.
There's no point to it. If you just want to blame someone bc you didn't like them, them actually blame them for things that were under his job description as President that he failed at. There's some there, lol.

I guess the facts don't interest you. Here they are anyway.

The Reagan administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan?s presidency. 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

OH come on Jams, that's the first time I heard of Reagan being to blame for the AIDS epidemic.

Well, I'm not sure how you came to THAT conclusion, although I'm not surprised it's the first time you have heard of it. I didn't say, nor imply, that Reagan was "to blame" for the AIDS epidemic.

I simply answered a question, and said one must understand the whole picture.

Quite a leap you took there.

The Reagan administration increased AIDS funding requests from $8 million in 1982 to $26.5 million in 1983, which Congress bumped to $44 million, a number that doubled every year thereafter during Reagan?s presidency

Do you have a source other than an opinion piece from Real Clear Politics? I like facts.

Some of the facts are this:

Reagan didn't even give a speech on AIDS until 1987. After his speech, he did create the President's Commission on HIV epidemic, but still ignored findings by experts and activists.

Reagan was heavily influenced by The "Moral Majority" whose literal platform was that HIV/AIDS was "god's punishment for gay men."

Yes, the Reagan administration did set aside some funding for research, but it was not until the late 80s that Reagan's Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop and Dr. Anthony Faucci, who headed the AIDS research at The National Institute of Health, got ahead of the administration and published a report discussing risk factors and prevention methods, to include condom use and sex education, which was much more information than Reagan's more conservative approach to the issue.

In 1988, Dr. Koop sent an informational packet on HIV/AIDS to every home in America.

I know you think you had a brilliant "gotcha" moment with your cut and paste job regarding funding, but the issue was, and is, much more complex than just dollars.

Daddy Bush did a better job than Reagan; he signed the Ryan White CARE Act and Americans with Disabilities Act, although failed to support full funding.

Clinton, in comparison, supported massive funding increases and even Baby Bush created the largest AIDS health program in HISTORY, funding and delivering antiretroviral therapy to those in poor countries and essentially changing the response face of the epidemic. His shortcoming was dealing with AIDS in America, but he did do a lot on the global scene. 

a889324uu --- 5 years ago -

But back to the topic at hand

Lady Gaga belts Led Zeppelin  

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Well, then, you can subtract Clintons wonderful AIDS concerns from his crappy treatment of women and setting them back to the stone ages in the way he treated them. Lol 

The Mark --- 5 years ago -

Like I said earlier, Reagan treated AIDS like any other unknown illness. He wasn't all touchy feely about it which upset a few people. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

Reagan was heavily influenced by The "Moral Majority" whose literal platform was that HIV/AIDS was "god's punishment for gay men."

Then why did he rally his Hollywood friends, some of whom were gay and mobilize them in defeat of Californias Prop. 6? Lets not forget he had considerable influence as the past Pres. of SAG. 

mutton --- 5 years ago -

I come here to vote and what the????? Really? Was supposed to be a fun thread I thought... 

Dorothy Parker --- 5 years ago -

I like both songs, but prefer Queen over Led Zeppelin. Bohemian Rhapsody is fun to sing! 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

mutton, good ole' karass had to turn it- I bow down to anyone who can sing Freddie Mercury and sound good! LOL 

BestOne --- 5 years ago -

OH come on Jams, that's the first time I heard of Reagan being to blame for the AIDS epidemic.?

You know as far as the democrats are concerned the republicans are responsible for all that's wrong with the country. They never make a mistake. Did you forget that? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 5 years ago -

really? We're really trying to get away from political bs- 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

My guy won!! It appears Steve Perry is SO talented, even his copy cats are amazing. lol 

Red Heifer --- 5 years ago -

Zeppelin, not a close call to me. 

Not KU --- 5 years ago -

Both similar in that they are long, beginning, and middle are slow then the ending starts with power chords and thundering drums.

Those are my favorite types of songs. "Copperhead Road" is like that as well.
