    When a song is that God-like, there doesn't need to be a chorus.

    Not really. If you truly think that about Rhyme, not only do I completely disagree, but yes I laugh at it. Only reason it's not a classic rock radio staple is it wasn't released as a single nor was it pushed to radio play by the band or WB. Is what it is.

    maybe, but in the broader sense, if you poll, most people on here seem to list Physical Graffiti as their favourite Led Zeppelin album. And if you poll the songs, many people put other songs on that album ahead of "Kashmir". So why is it, out of all of the songs on that album, at least in the areas I've lived, it seems the only two songs good enough for radio are "Kashmir" and to a lesser degree "Trampled Under Foot" (and that was the single, so that gets a pass). I can't recall ever hearing songs like "Ten Years Gone" or "Down By The Seaside" - if I ever heard "In The Light" it wasn't too many times. Maybe "Houses Of The Holy" occasionally. And "Night Flight" is about as catchy as it gets, but no play. Why out of all that epic-ness, was "Kashmir", a non-single, voted the only song worthy of heavy airplay?

    if you think about it, Women And Children First is Van Halen's "epic" album - the longest songs before that were just over 4 minutes - four of the songs on Women And Children First are longer than anything that had come before, and two of them are the longest! The whole album is underrated. But "In A Simple Rhyme" is just a microcosm of where Van Halen had gotten to at that point - even though it's only 4:18, it seems a lot longer when you think of all the turns it takes, combining the "sweetness" of what had gone before with the "epicness" of the new recordings.

    Because it’s for the masses/casual fans, not diehards. Kashmir just happens to be one of the most epic songs ever played/recorded/produced/released, IMO and also a radio staple. That’s Zeppelin for you. Even their radio staples are excellent.

    On the other hand Jump is probably the most played VH song on radio.


    Unfortunately.

    I’m just glad that HFT gets as much radio play as it does. I think in many ways it’s VH technical achievement as a track. Such a shame for how much I like 5150 as an album, the 1984 follow up would have been better.
