    Default Extra Special Songs to hear with Headphones

    Sure, in some respects, almost any good song sounds great in Headphones, a good pair of headphones.

    But, what I'm looking for here, are extra special songs that you would recommend to hear with headphones on...

    To start with, I recommend:

    Four Sticks, In The Light, and Down By The Seaside - Led Zeppelin

    And, it goes without saying, but the entire PF album DSOTM... Much of PF is excellent for headphone listening, but I wanted to mention the Best of the Best...

    I concur.

    Down By The Seaside.

    It was headphones that gave me a new appreciation for that song, even though I always loved it anyway.

    Beats or Bose?

    Earpods for apple, if you're on a budget.

    Any prog rock album should be listened with headphones, imo. Pink Floyd, early Chicago, Yes, Peter Gabriel-era Genesis, E.L.P., etc.



    Jefferson Airplane - "White Rabbit"

    I've always thought that the Scorpions and Judas Priest sound even bigger on headphones.

    I remember how awesome this sounded on headphones way back in 1976 when I blasted my older brother's copy of "A New World Record" on 8-Track ...

    I was listening to Rocks at the gym last week and I think "Back In The Saddle" uh, rocks on headphones with all the stuff going on. A lot of Queen was made for headphones. "I Am The Walrus" provided you don't strain an ear drum when it cuts out on one side!! Good call on "It Keeps You Runnin'"
