Heart: Stairway to Heaven

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.

I was just scouring the interwebs for this, should have known I’d find it right there on my tumblr dash. 

This was incredible. 

I had a moment, right when they announced Heart, where I knew that if my dad were alive, we would be watching this together. And he would be loving every second. He would comment on Ann’s voice, and tell me again some story about being high and listening to Zepplin. I would reminisce to him about how he used to play Stairway to Heaven on the guitar when I was little, and I would read the words along out of the song book.  We would laugh about how I was a three year old who knew every word of the seven minute song. 

Watching tonight, I had an overwhelming and unbearable urge to pick up the phone and call him…to tell him what I was watching.  To say to him “you would love it.”  

Instead I just sat and listened, eyes closed, tears streaming down my face.

    Remember when Heart did a “cover” of Led Zepplin’s “Stairway To Heaven”? No? Then here’s a reminder. You’re welcome.

    I think everyone has some memory they can attach to this song. When I saw this version on the TV, my phone immediately...
