“Cease and Desist” – Bah & the Humbugs
It’s Christmas time, so here comes the man in the suit. And I don’t mean Santa.
“Stand By Me” – Andy Madadian, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora & Friends
Producer Don Was and singers Andy Madadian (an Iranian exile) and Jon Bon Jovi recorded this duet of the Ben E. King song “Stand By Me” June 24 as a symbol of worldwide solidarity for the Iranian people, currently protesting a rigged presidential election. The first verse is in Farsi (only natural for Madadian, but a first for Bon Jovi).
“Craigslist” – “Weird Al” Yankovic
No, it’s not a new Doors single. Jim Morrison, sadly, did not live long enough to comment on the Internet’s own swap meet, so “Weird Al” Yankovic had to do it for him. It may be a cheesy low-budget video, but it still has to be seen to be believed.
