Robert Anthony Plant, a musician known for his appreciation of Hobbits and Hobbit-related material, turns 65 today. His place as one of the greatest vocalists in rock history is beyond dispute, so perhaps the only thing left to debate is his greatest vocal. Here are some candidates, from the very obvious to the slightly less celebrated, but for my money the greatest Robert Plant vocal happens from 2:17–2:21 in the song above. A small thing, but it contains multitudes. Below, the very obvious to the slightly less celebrated.
