Stairway To Heaven.

I hate Bohemian Rhapsody.

So your hatred of the song has you convinced it took less talent to make than Stairway, or are you not interested in answering the question posed in this thread?

I hate the song. The thread is simple.

Unlike you I am not a fanboy of any band. I can accept my favourites losing a poll.

I do not like Queen. I hate that song with a passion.

I got that. What I'm trying to say is that just because you hate something doesn't necessarily mean you don't think it took talent to create it. And the question of this thread is which song took more talent to make, not which one you like more.

EDIT: and I'm not really trying to come off like a defensive fanboy here, I do accept that not everyone cares for my favorite song, doesn't mean I won't be passionate about it in public, but I digress. It just seemed to me like you either misread the question of the thread or you were equating how much you like something with how much talent it took to make.

I hate the song. Wish it never existed. If I thought the talent was worth the effort I would support it. I do not. Again. I hate it. Hated it the first time I heard it as a kid and still do.

that's.....hilariously extra, lol

Mick

I mean, I kinda pushed his buttons there, so idk it's sorta justified, lol. I won't begrudge anyone their honest opinion.

Haha I know but...sometimes it really grinds my gears that when someone says they dislike something, someone always has to turn around and be like "APPRECIATE IT LIKE I DO!"

It ain't a crime to hate a song that generally has its fans. I hate it soo much it almost put me off ever trying Queen again, which would be a shane as the first three albums are lush.

More talented? I don't understand the purpose of this question. Both bands are obviously massively talented. Apples and oranges.

I would say Led Zeppelin's music has a stronger center of gravity. Everything they do is pulled back to blues music. Queen is floating all over the place.

Both processes have their strengths and weaknesses. Let personal preference sort it out.

Oh yeah, I can happily go about the rest of my life and never hear either song again.

More talent? Queen by a landslide. Not to say the guys weren’t talented in LZ, but it’s more of a straight up rock tune. BR took some real compositional talent, and those harmonies are gorgeous.

Not sure how you could tell what took more talent to write. None of us were in the studio to see what the creation process of either song. Bo Rhap definitely took more outside the box thinking. Stairway set the template for the hard rock/metal ballad song structure which is still used today.

Rhapsody was more experimental but Stairway was more influential. Not sure if that means anything in terms of what took more talent though.

Well, to me they are the same.  They are musicians, and they all are talented, but some are lazy and others really exercise their talent to the max.  Jimmy always struck me as someone always able to do and be more but rested on that he had already accomplished.  Queen, on the other hand, were more professional and serious.  In my opinion.

Keep in mind I am not a musician and know nothing about the technicalities of music.  My question may seem dumb to those who do, but for me, it was a sincere question - which song took more talent to write and perform?

My thoughts exactly...and whose to say which song took more or less talent? Different approaches altogether!

And I prefer Led Zeppelin. There are very few bands I would choose Queen over.

No apology needed. I can absolutely be a boob from time to time (or all the time). I just think both bands are incredibly talented. I do think more time and work went into the recording and producing of Bohemian Rhapsody.
