FYI

Most requested song - measured by air play royalties paid:

Today - the most requested song - by far - has been Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" Atlantic records has paid songwriters Plant/Page over $25,000,000 in airplay royalties for this song (at .03 cents per play) since it's release in 1974.

Get the "Led" out :)

The most "played" song FM Radio, is one of the beetles songs. "Yesterday" I think.




Sting - Fields of Gold

Oh I love Alison Krause! Well Robert Plant too but his voice is not as angelic as Alison's. She grew up just a few miles south of me and I when she was very young from when I went to a few local talent contests with my brother in law and his family (country music band) which she was part of. That girl plays a mean fiddle!

This has always been one of my favorite songs of hers:

@sari: Thanks so much for this post - Robert Plant and Alison Kraus. It's an album I have meant to listen too for a long time, but kept forgetting about it. Now it's posted on GeeksToGo. I will now seek it out :)

There is a connection with Kraus and this next track. I wonder if DonnaB will post the answer. :)

Alison Krauss played fiddle in that tune along side the Soggy Bottom Boys which was on the soundtrack of O Brother, Where Art Thou?

She is/was big into bluegrass. Yeeeehaaaw!

EDIT: OOoops! Forgot to wink at cha! ;)

I did not know that, it is a better answer than the one I expected. She also plays fiddle on a couple of the Plant\Kraus album.

The connection was the track - Down To The River To Pray, see not as good a your answer :lol:

Nutloaf, I was first introduced to the Alison Kraus/Robert Plant collaboration on a TV show - Unplugged, maybe? I was really impressed, and (legally) downloaded Raising Sand. I then had the opportunity to see them in concert (really really surprising I would have done that) in support of the album, and to this day I consider it one of the best live shows I have seen. And yes, she plays an amazing fiddle, and her voice is so pure. I also felt that it showed how Robert Plant had been so successful for so long - he really is an amazing singer, and his feel for the blues/bluegrass both really comes through.

Changing direction now - this band opened for Of Monsters and Men this summer, and I was impressed by them.

And I hope the video plays for you. I'm having issues with it, although it's the official video from their Youtube channel.
