Episode 1: “Stairway to Heaven”

For the first episode of SAME OLD SONG we went directly to the most compelling pop song in recording history. Led Zeppelin never officially released the song as a single, but it has managed to become an über-classic, inspiring countless musicians. The complexity of the song’s structure and lyrics make it probably the best choice for SAME OLD SONG, such that all other songs will pale in comparison. But that’s not going to stop us.

Close to Villa Waldberta, there is actually a path down to the Starnburger Lake that can be translated to “Stairway to Heaven” (skyway? whatever!)

Original flyer based on jukebox labels theme, which most people don’t seem to understand these days. Jukeboxes weren’t big in Germany and haven’t existed for a long time now…

Original flyer (back). TMI ??  “Eine Nacht…” in German, but it has since evolved into English: One Song. All Night Long.
