Stairway To Heaven, absolute no brainer. Freebird is good, tho me having played guitar for well over 30 years, really do know the difference. Jimmy Page v multiple guitarists, they still dont come close. I also really like Sweet home Alabama, from Lynard Skynard.

Eric Clapton is better than Jimmy Page.

Both fantastic songs, but Stairway to Heaven will always be the winner.

Like i said, as a guitar player for over 30 years, i have some knowledge of this stuff. I could learn to play any Clapton song in a day, and sound half decent. Jimmy Page stuff takes weeks. I spent 6 month's on getting Stairway sounding decent, and that was playing everyday.

I guess the answer to this question would vary depending on where it was asked.

I can only comment as a guitar player for a few decades. So i know how difficult there stuff is to play, which relates directly to how good the guitarist in the recording's are. How it sounds on a record is a different thing tho. FFS, Stock- Aitken- Waterman, convinced the world Kylie Minogue can actually sing.Jimmy Page along with Jeff Beck are the 2 best guitarists ever FACT. Any real musician will acknowledge that fact. Tho it is all down to how it sounds on vinyl/CD whatever. Comparing a multi guitarist studio produced track with several overlays, Against one man live on stage is just so wrong really. Bit like asking would Mohammed Ali win a fight against 5 Mike Tyson's. Yet Jimmy Page still sound's and plays better. Heroin may have helped JP tho. Trying to compare the 2 songs is silly really, Unless you have heard Freebird played live, with just one guitarist.
