Hear Billy Joel's Explosive Cover of Paul McCartney's 'Maybe I'm Amazed'

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/hear-billy-joels-explosive-cover-of-paul-mccartneys-maybe-im-amazed-20141106

I listened to both takes on Live and Let Die and Maybe I’m Amazed by Billy Joel. Some comments are unkind, some favorable. Well, for me Billy Joel’s voice at his age now lacks the range he used to have, it would be unfair for him to be compared to the original version when Paul was at his peak. 440 more words

Tribute Songs To John Lennon, Part Three: Bob Dylan—“Roll on John”

The 10th track in Bob Dylan’s album Tempest, I immediately downloaded the album when it came out in torrents and swooped to Roll On John. The instant liking to it grew bigger as I listened to it more and more savoring the lyrics, thinking if Bob really meant those words, and what he was feeling while recording it. 473 more words

This Goran Dragic Music Video Is Pretty Catchy

There aren’t nearly enough comedy music tributes recorded about foreign NBA players these days. I really hate dishing out such a hot take to you guys like that, but Slovenian comedian Klemen Slakonja’s “Dragon, Dragone” tribute to Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic is making me demand that more global comedy icons get their sh*t together and start honoring their countries’ athletes more. 444 more words
