yah, when I first heard LZ4/Zoso in high school (mid to late 90's) I was
blown away...  my fav's included, of course, the FM hits, but also stuff
that (atleast after i was born) wasn't played so much, like Going To
California and Misty Mountain Hop...  also loved using my parents' "sweet"
486 to rip sections of tracks and listen to them backwards...  if I didn't
believe so much of that stuff was coincidence (except "Weird Al"'s
"subliminal" tracks), i would have been really freaked...  there are a
number of songs where i could have sworn i heard various phrases
backwards...  including songs other than Stairway...

heh, another classic! :)  i remember my 8th grade teacher (who was into Rush
and turned me on to Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dead Milkmen) playing
spinal tap scenes in our english class...  those were the days! :P
