No. 39: ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ – Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Jimmy Page proved once and for all his absolute mastery of the blues rock idiom with ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ from Led Zeppelin‘s third album. An anomaly for a record mostly featuring material that was a turn away from Zeppelin’s trademark brand of heavy blues rock, the track, which is No. 39 on our countdown of the Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs, was a ridiculously good juxtaposition of the group’s primary influences and has long been a fan favorite.

Led by Page’s simple blues guitar lines and padded by John Paul Jones‘ organ chords, the track features a vocal from Robert Plant that runs the gamut from practically whispering, to almost howling out the words in pain — all topped off by one of Page’s greatest-ever guitar solos.

John Bonham‘s drum performance also fits the track perfectly, barely sketching out the verses, but pounding home the choruses and solo sections with typical bravado.
