2 ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’
From: ‘The Firm’ (1985)
Only a madman would want Page to abandon the things that made his work in Led Zeppelin so great, but sometimes by treading too closely on that same holy ground — particularly in the choice of singers — his new music seems to come up short of his amazing past. But not here. Even though Page breaks out his famous violin bow and the kind of soaring guitar orchestrations that made ‘Kashmir’ and the like so great, ‘Satisfaction Guaranteed’ earns its high spot on this list of Top 10 Post-Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page Songs because of how well he plays off of Paul Rodgers’ complete lack of Robert Plant-like histrionics to create something familiar, relaxed, confident and new.
