Random Song of the Day - Battle of Evermore - The Lovemongers

Did you know that The Lovemongers was a side group that the Wilson sisters (of Heart fame) put together in the early 90's?

From Wikipedia:
Following a 1990 tour, the Wilson sisters put together an informal acoustic group called The Lovemongers with Sue Ennis and Frank Cox. A four-song EP that included a version of Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore" came out in late 1992, and the quartet performed several times in the Seattle area. The Lovemongers released a full-length album titled Whirlygig in 1997.

So yes, they released a version of Zeppelin's Battle of Evermore, which can be found on the soundtrack of the movie "Singles" (see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105415/soundtrack).

Here's a live performance of the song by Anne and Nancy Wilson:

And here's the original by Led Zep:
