8 noiembrie – Led Zeppelin

8 noiembrie


1520 – Are loc așa numita ”Baie de sânge” de la Stockholm … în daneză – ”det stockholmske blodbad”.

V-am oferit traducerea în daneză, deoarece masacrele survenite între 7 și 10 noiembrie, culminând cu executarea a 80-90 de nobili și clerici în ziua de 8, au fost săvârșite de regele Danemarcei, Christian al II-lea, în urma invaziei Suediei.


1971 – Led Zeppelin scoate albumul – fără nume – “Led Zeppelin IV”, acesta devenind al 3-lea cel mai bine vândut album din istoria Statelor Unite. Nu vă spun care sunt primele două. 😀

Discul este considerat opera fundamentală a celor de la Led Zeppelin, cu cântece ca ”Black Dog”, ”Going to California”, ”Misty Mountain Top”, ”Rock and Roll”, ”When the Levee Breaks” sau ”Stairway to Heaven”.

Vă invit să ascultați acest din urmă cântec, considerat de mulți ca fiind cel mai măreț cântec rock din toate timpurile … Eu nu mă număr printe aceia. 🙂

“Stairway To Heaven”


 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, 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.


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.


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.


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 tune will come to you at last.

When all is one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.


And she’s buying a stairway to heaven.
