Led Zeppelin consisted of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham. They formed their band in 1968. They are one of the few bands to not release any songs as singles, as they were more interested in the concept of "album oriented work." Led Zeppelin has sold over 200 million albums worldwide, with 111 million of them being sold in the United States. Led Zeppelin's music was heavily driven by the guitar along with the blues-rock sound. Their music continues to be popular today and they are among the best selling artists of all time.

I only like a couple of Led Zeppelin's songs, some of their biggest hits. The only ones I ever really listen to are Immigrant Song and Stairway to Heaven. I like these songs because of the sound of the guitar. These songs are unlike modern day songs where you can rarely find a song where the guitar is the dominant sound like in Led Zeppelin's songs.

The Jackson 5 consisted of Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael Jackson. The Jackson 5 were the most popular pop music phenomena of the 1970s with big hits such as ABC. All of their first four singles reached the Billboard Top 100, a first in recording history. They were also the first black teen group to appeal to audiences of all ethnicities. The Jackson 5 continue to be popular today, and seemed to regain popularity in the days following the death of former lead singer Michael Jackson. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackson_5

The Jackson 5 appeal to me because a lot of their songs are catchy. My favorite song of theirs is ABC because it is just a great song. I like how their songs contain catchy tunes, along with great vocals from the one and only Michael Jackson.

Marvin Gaye began his career as a member of The Moonglows in the late 1950s. He later moved on to a solo career after the band fell apart during the 1960s. Gaye struck a record deal with Motown Records and became one of their top selling artists during the 1960s. Gaye was crowned both the "Prince of Motown" and the "Prince of Soul" due to his amazing talent. Gaye's songs continue to be popular today and are the reason as to why he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Gaye

I like Marvin Gaye's song Let's Get It On because of its slowness and also the quality of Marvin's vocals. His vocal talent is almost as good as that of Michael Jackson's, which is just one more reason as to why I enjoy listening to his music.
