“We Belong”

“We Belong” – Def Leppard
Sometimes you just have to simplify things.


“Last Night in the City”

“Last Night in the City” – Duran Duran featuring Kiesza

Duran Duran mixed their Paper Gods album to sound live, so when you see a music video with the band and guest vocalist on stage, you can so easily imagine you’re watching a concert.


“Beautiful Broken”

“Beautiful Broken” – Heart

The title track from a new album that revisits “neglected” songs from the band’s catalog and also introduces three new songs. This is not the first Heart song that will make you lie awake at night asking, “Who could they be talking about?”



“Taxman” – Cheap Trick and Daryl Hall (Live from Daryl’s House)

A little paranoia among friends.


“No Bitter End”

“No Bitter End” – Tarja Turunen

There’s still time. Just let go. New album The Shadow Self coming this summer.


“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” – Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, and Jeff Lynne (2004 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame)

It’s hard to add an exclamation point to a classic song that everyone knows already, but there it is.


“Fire and Water”

“Fire and Water” – Ace Frehley

If this song sounds a lot like Kiss, it should — the artist is Kiss’s original lead guitarist and the song features vocals from Kiss vocalist Paul Stanley. You’re hearing the two working together for the first time in over a decade.


“Nothing Where Something Used To Be”

Liberman, the new album from pop pianist Vanessa Carlton, has been described as opaque and imposing but it didn’t start out that way. This remix from early in the production process shows how the artist considered a clean, conventional pop sound for the album before abandoning that approach.


“Wonderous Stories”

“Wonderous Stories” (live) – Anderson Ponty Band

An easygoing, jazzy take on an old Yes hit. Anderson Ponty Band hits the road again this summer.


“When I Wake Up Tomorrow”

“When I Wake Up Tomorrow” – Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick hasn’t had a song with so much atmosphere since “The Flame.” The new single kind of reminds you why they’re going into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


Foo Fighters Official Band Announcement

Foo Fighters are not breaking up. But this video shows that they could if they wanted to.



“Down” – Rick Springfield

New music from Rick Springfield, who has lightened up. A little. Album Rocket Science available now.
