The Best of Robert Ingersoll by Robert G. Ingersoll

Posted by 2018 article


So, what would that look like? The legendary and dynamic and overpowering voice, unmoored from the discrete elements of Zeppelin that had helped give him that power, but also were powerful enough to balance him out. Iconic frontmen like Plant had been, and have since been, there before. There are many ways it can go. And over the course of the 35 years since Plant’s solo debut, 1982’s Pictures At Eleven , his career has gone in most of those possible directions.

The weird thing is that the blend of Zeppelin’s rock DNA and the instrumentation and arrangements of those records is that it sometimes starts to sound like Rush or (fittingly) Genesis; not a bad thing inherently, but perhaps an uncool signifier that has contributed to Plant’s ‘80s work being somewhat consigned to ephemera despite the hit singles and the fact that we constantly revive and reevaluate everything from the ‘80s. The other problem is that the decade was a mixed bag for him from a songwriting standpoint, some memorable highlights and then more forgettable, or embarrassing, moments.

Fast-forward to 1993’s Fate Of Nations , and you can find Plant doing the same thing in the grunge era, when bands like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots took their debt to ‘70s hard rock and turned it into mainstream alternative rock. A song like “ Calling To You ” at once sounds almost like something Soundgarden themselves could’ve written for 1994’s Superunknown and also lets you imagine what a ‘90s Zeppelin record could’ve been like. After the various looks Plant tried out, this felt like a more natural extension of his past.

Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796), also known as Rabbie Burns , the Bard of Ayrshire , Ploughman Poet and various other names and epithets , [nb 1] was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language , although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect , accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these writings his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest.

He is regarded as a pioneer of the Romantic movement , and after his death he became a great source of inspiration to the founders of both liberalism and socialism , and a cultural icon in Scotland and among the Scottish diaspora around the world. Celebration of his life and work became almost a national charismatic cult during the 19th and 20th centuries, and his influence has long been strong on Scottish literature . In 2009 he was chosen as the greatest Scot by the Scottish public in a vote run by Scottish television channel STV .

As well as making original compositions, Burns also collected folk songs from across Scotland, often revising or adapting them. His poem (and song) " Auld Lang Syne " is often sung at Hogmanay (the last day of the year), and " Scots Wha Hae " served for a long time as an unofficial national anthem of the country. Other poems and songs of Burns that remain well known across the world today include " A Red, Red Rose ", " A Man's a Man for A' That ", " To a Louse ", " To a Mouse ", " The Battle of Sherramuir ", " Tam o' Shanter " and " Ae Fond Kiss ".
