  1. I had Mojo Magazine's "Physical Graffiti" tribute cd on at work earlier today and when Sun Kil Moon's cover of "Sick Again" was over, it triggered an impulse to put on Sun Kil Moon's "Benji" album from last year. For those that don't know, Sun Kil Moon is the moniker that Mark Kozelek records under. Mark Kozelek was also the singer-guitarist in the Red House Painters. In Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous", Mark Kozelek played the bass player in the band Stillwater. Like Jack White, the guy knows how to keep busy. Also like Jack White, he has a love for Led Zeppelin and acknowledges their influence. "Benji" was released way back in February 2014, and I remember immediately liking the album and especially being struck by the song "I Watched the Film The Song Remains the Same". However, I am constantly accruing new music and whether I got busy or just plain forgot, I never got around to posting the song here for other Led Zeppelin fans to hear. Mark Kozelek/Sun Kil Moon is not someone who is going to be played on classic rock or mainstream rock radio. But I feel Led Zeppelin fans should hear this song, and I think it might trigger your own memories of watching "The Song Remains the Same". It is a melancholy and touching song, and it gets at the heart of what makes "The Song Remains the Same" endure...not just because of the content of the film, but for the shared ritual that most of us experienced first watching it in a theatre. The song then travels through another memory of Mark's childhood, one that he feels ashamed of, and then circles back to how he views "The Song Remains the Same" after the deaths of John Bonham and Peter Grant. Musically, it is a simple song...just plain acoustic guitar. Although, towards the end there are some lovely layered textures of acoustic arpeggios. Here is Sun Kil Moon's "I Watched the Film 'The Song Remains the Same'":
