“Urgent” – Foreigner

The latest Foreigner album may be thought of as a live version of their 4 album. It’s the same songs, but different enough to make you want to listen to them again.


“Hope for the Future”

“Hope for the Future” – Paul McCartney

This is only a game. But the future is real.


“Kick It Out”

“Kick It Out” – Foo Fighters and Heart

You’ve heard this song before, but never like this. Live on Late Show with David Letterman.


“Days of Wine and Roses”

Robin Gibb was an English poet, and never more so than on his final album, due for release September 30.



“Tacky” – “Weird Al” Yankovic

You know those people who are just a little too gleeful at using bad form and bad style? Well, Weird Al discovered there’s a word for people like that. New album Mandatory Fun drops in minutes!


2014 Philly 4th of July Jam

2014 Philly 4th of July Jam – The Roots, Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson, Aloe Blacc

If you couldn’t be there in Philadelphia live on Independence Day, there’s VH1. 2 hours, 5 minutes.



“Become” – Midge Ure

If there is time to post just one more video from YouTube before it starts shutting down the public site, it might as well be this one. Midge Ure returns 13 years later with that familiar restrained voice, this time in an agricultural setting. If you have to grow, become something good, something strong.


The Writing’s On the Wall

Mirrors, paint, and other optical illusions, and the story at Billboard.


Demolition Man

“Demolition Man” – Manfred Mann’s Earth Band

Especially for those who got their high school diplomas last night, here’s a song and video from ages ago about what it means to be out there in the world.


Love Finds a Way

“Love Finds a Way” – Neal Schon featuring Deen Castronovo

Are they robots or video game characters — or just exceptionally well-practiced rock musicians? New album SO U available now.


“One Minute”

“One Minute” (radio edit) – Uriah Heep

Listen to the sparkling sound of this new single and you’ll be happy about the way some people just never stop trying.


Eye in the Sky

“Eye in the Sky” — Asia featuring John Payne

It’s a remake of an old Alan Parsons Project song about surveillance, so it’s only fitting that Parsons himself plays the title role in the video.


Styx, Foreigner, Don Felder Interview

Styx and Foreigner are preparing for a summer tour with former Eagles member Don Felder — and it is more than just a tour, with a new remake of “Hotel California” also in the works.



“Empire” – Shakira

A new slow emo track. Album in one month.


“The Trooper”

“The Trooper” (live at the Peavey stage at NAMM 2014) – The Iron Maidens

Close your eyes and you could forget for a moment that this is not the real Iron Maiden, but an all-female tribute band playing an Iron Maiden song.


“I Want You to Want Me”

This recent live performance of a classic hit shows that some songs just don’t change over time.


“Everybody’s Everything”

“Everybody’s Everything” – Steve Winwood and Sheila E featuring Orianthi

A lesson in legend.



“Saturday” – Rebecca Black & Dave Days

Living it up obviously doesn’t end with Friday.
