I am fan of yearly Zeppelin. Not so long ago I discovered that their "Stairway To Heaven" is actually variation on the traditional Ukrainian lullaby song "Oh, Sleep, My Child (see Youtube video ) The lullaby was known more then 100 years.

Wikipedia wrote about Led Zeppelin: "their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music". It's unbelievable but it is the real fact. Led Zeppelin has multinational roots and one of them is Ukrainian folk music!

You can find "Oh, Sleep, My Child on the album Traditional Songs And Instrumental Dance Music Of The Left-Bank Of Kyiv Region. (track #15)

Full version of the song you can hear online on
What do you think about that?

I'd rather hear the folk song and the Zep separately to get an idea. From the Youtube link it sounds more like a happy coincidence that the vocal "fits" (a bit) onto the zeppelin track. It wouldn't be alone in that; there's a well known mash-up of (if I remember right) AC/DC's Thunderstruck and Ray Parker Jnr's Ghostbusters which fit seemlessly together.

Probably the most notorious one though is how Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon album meshes with the movie The Wizard Of Oz.
