I'm not sure about the "satanic" message in Stairway to Heaven. The tempo seems to change at times, as if someone was messing with the sound clip.

p.s. i am amazed that by interjecting some humor in her music she's accused of not taking it seriously. while i don't take all her lyrics at face value (i hope she's not as misanthropic as it seems in "it's a pose"), that doesn't mean that at their core they don't reflect genuine feelings.

contrast this with critical darling eminem - the common line for him is that he is essentially playing a character - i.e. he isn't homophobic or misogynist, his characters are - yeah right - if that is the case why isn't it said that he not taking his music seriously. mckay's humor is a sly wink, belying some of the more extreme lyrics...i get no sense of hatefulness from her....
