Sad as it is to admit, Led Zeppelin are probably never going to perform together again. Robert Plant doesn't want to do it, and it seems like nothing will change his mind. In 2007 he agreed to a single show, and it's finally coming out on DVD, Blu-ray, vinyl and pretty much every other format known to man on November 19th. It won't be the same as seeing an actual Led Zeppelin concert, but it's as close as anyone is likely to get now.

Which leads to our question this week: what is your favorite Led Zeppelin song? Anything in their catalog is fair game, from "Good Times Bad Times" to "Wearing and Tearing." Feel free to dig deep. Everyone knows and loves "Kashmir," but how many people are rocking out to "Walter's Walk" these days?

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
