The 10 Greatest Led Zeppelin Songs

4 ) “Black Dog” (1971)

Robert Plant’s introductory “Hey, hey, Mama, said the way you move,” lyrics are more instantly recognizable to many listeners than the song’s title “Black Dog.” The title is a reference to the black Labrador retriever that wandered the studios while the band was recording the song. Robert Plant’s a capella vocal segments were inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s song “Oh Well.” Jimmy Page’s complex guitar riff is one of the most celebrated in rock history. “Black Dog” was released as a single and peaked at #15 on the U.S. pop singles chart.
