Options December 9, 2014: Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin Karaoke RETURNS!
I'll admit it: I'm a bit world-weary right now and need a break from serious subject matter. I looked at the Aerial View Playlist Page and noticed it's been 364 days since the first Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin Karaoke and decided it should be an annual event.

It's easy: I play the Led Zeppelin backing tracks, you call 201-209-9368 and - accompanied by extra gobs of reverb - provide the vocals.

Here are the backing tracks available to sing (click on the title for lyrics):

Sure, you're no Robert Plant. But call 201-209-WFMU and swing the Hammer of the Gods anyway!

Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:12pm Marcel M:

Nooo, Oks hah, are you? You should!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:14pm dale:

this guy's a ringer - acted like an ass for effect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:14pm dale:

his phrasing is way too good
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:14pm Marcel M:

He's sounding good! Last year I thought a few were much better than Plant.
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:14pm Tommy:

Did Robert Plant call in ?
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:16pm oks:

thinking about it Marcel.. but babe ,i'm gonna leave you.. i gotta go :/
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:17pm oks:

Chris T's annual talent search.

Nicely done!

This is better than American Idol.

I am a SHAMELESS Zep lover, (well, sometimes Plant gives me hives, but I love him like a muppet),...but what I'm wondering is: will somebody please sing the lyrics and melody from the Doobie Bros. "Long Train Running" over the backing track for Zep's "Trampled Underfoot"?
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:21pm Marcel M:

Oh man ALS is soooo long someone do it haaaaaa
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:21pm JoeyX:

It's the most magical time of the year! Hooray for the return of Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin Karaoke!
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:22pm Dallas Dave:

Nice job!
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:26pm Dallas Dave:

Chris T, Did you revive Led Zeppelin Karaoke because Robert Plant recently turned down $800 million to do a Led Zeppelin reunion tour? The other three members immediately said yes. Richard Branson made the offer.
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:27pm Marcel M:

I hadn't heard that Dave, thank GOD he said no..
Avatar    Tue. 12/9/14 6:30pm DanH:

Maybe the terrible version he heard was really himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:32pm Mike East:

I guess John Bonham is hurtin' for cash in Rock &Roll hell.
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:32pm Dallas Dave:

Yes. I am glad as well, although I probably would have gone to see them. He had no desire to sing Stairway to Heaven for the 10 zillionth time. They were offered a free private jumbo jet. The staircase up to the plane door would have Stairway to Heaven written on it. Plant said he had moved on to other styles of music.
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:36pm Marcel M:

Dave: Well thats cool of ol' Robert. Did they have a set drummer they were gonna use?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:37pm dale:

this guy sounds like adam sandler when he sings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:37pm dale:

his upper register - or wailing - is good though.
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:38pm Marcel M:

WOAHHHH!!!! Man that was a high and loooong one.
Avatar    Tue. 12/9/14 6:40pm Guido from Cologne:

This is the start of a great career!
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:45pm Dallas Dave:

Drummer would have been Bonham's son Jason.
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:45pm Marcel M:

Ah thats what I figured. Thanks for the info Dave.
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:46pm Marcel M:

Hey Chris T, I enjoyed hearing the 96' version of you call in 7 Second Delay on the rerun the other day. Finally listened to it last night.
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:49pm SeanG:

sandy denny
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:51pm Mike East:

wow...never knew that was Sandy Denny, but...duh, of course that's Sandy Denny. You've just blown my mind.
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:51pm Tommy:

GREAT voice , but phrasing is off
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:52pm Dallas Dave:

Marcel M, Just tried to find the article online again. Turns out the whole thing was a rumor. Sorry about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/9/14 6:52pm dale:

tommy t rocks!
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:53pm jon:

tommy t nailed it
Avatar Tue. 12/9/14 6:54pm Marcel M:

@Dave: HAH! No worries thanks for the clarification.
  Tue. 12/9/14 6:57pm jon:
