I prefer Child in Time by a fair margin. Love Zep, but I always found STH overrated.

I'm voting for Child in Time.   It's more obscure and therefore it's more edgy and it makes me look more sophisticated and more of an expert and aficionado to pick it.

Both are great .. but I think in the case of these two songs, both have achieved the status they deserve ..

Stairway wins this one

I really can’t improve on this, so I’ll just like it.

Overplayed don't matter, who's overplaying it, you? Then stop! Easy answer. And if it's not you then turn the radio channel or you're just parroting what you heard or read. Don't parrot, stop! STOP!

With all due respect, "Stairway to Heaven" may be overplayed, however, it is by no means overrated.

A great song through and through both lyrically and musically.

It's only weakness is the fact that it is overplayed.

Stairway wins for me.

As for it being overplayed, personally, I hear Whole Lotta Love and Rock 'n' Roll far more on the radio

Listen people if a song is "overplayed" that doesn't change the song, it's just as it always was, it's YOU who's changed. You've heard it to much, or you think you heard it too much but to quote this same band the song remains the same...

You know which song gave you goosebumps when hearing it for the first time.

It still gives me goosebumps.
