Spartacus.....Triumvirat  (The whole album, it is a concept album so it is pretty much one song with a lot of parts.)

I was never a big Led Zeppelin fan but I really liked two songs off Physical Graffiti.

In My Time Of Dying
Houses Of The Holy

So many good ones mentioned (a handful of which I know).

"How Long" by Ace was also a hit that year.

Yes....that one was even better than Magic.  Magic may have been 1974 (not 1975 as I listed it).....or they might have both been 1975 in Australia. :-\\

Either way those two songs were both great songs...
