A Musical Orgasm...


Ever heard of a musical orgasm? Neither did I. It was only yesterday that I came across this word. Though one can make most most of what the word would mean, I guess it would be more or less like a musical high or something. So as always, I sat back and ran a scanf function over my mind trying hard to remember the songs I feel give me a musical orgasm (ok, whatever!) and I have a feeling it has to be Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven.

The amount of passion which the members of the band put in the song is quite remarkable. Starting as a folk song, it gives way to one of the most beautiful guitar solos one could possibly get to listen to (Now after all it's Jimmy Page.) And the best part is that Led Zeppelin is a British Band which is something one can easily conclude if one reads their lyrics. It's also rumoured that when played in reverse, it sort of glorifies satan (I'm not sure about this one... just heard about it!) But then what the heck! Who cares about satan when one is in a musical orgasm (ok, whatever!) I'll end this post with the favourite portion of this song...

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

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't you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind


Crappy Point #1 : As you move in Life, you meet people. Some fall by the way, some fall over their faces. But there are those who stick with you through and through. They give you hope. Why? Because hope is a good thing!!

Now if anyone can guess where those lines come from?? :P

My recommendations to experience more musical orgasms:

1. Comfortably Numb
2. Brothers in Arms (the live version)

And yes, Stairway to Heaven is like sex with Scarlett Johansson converted to sound.

I know, that didn't make sense. But you get the idea, right?

Try to get your hands on any live version (video preferably) of Since I've been loving you by Led Zep. Plant and Page's improv are breathtaking!
