The 20 greatest breakup songs ever – ranked!

On the 40th anniversary of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive topping the charts – and as the UK blunders towards its own acrimonious divorce – here’s the definitive list of tear-stained stonkersHip-hop isn’t big on romantic heartbreak, but this is a particularly fine example. There’s a lot of bragging from Guru about how he’s so inundated with offers since his ex packed him in that she’s probably jealous. But somehow, you get the sense he’s protesting too much: “Went home to see my mom and I saw yo...

Whitehorse Returns with a New Addition to 'The Northern South'

None It's been more than two years since the Canadian folk rock duo Whitehorse released the EP The Northern South Vol. 1. The disc contained covers of past classics by legends like Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, and Chuck Berry. Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet transformed these cuts into dirty, nasty, smoldering tracks that bled fire, flesh, and brimstone. The multi-instrumentalists played and sang as if possessed by the devil, the one that lives inside of us and per...

‘Deadwax’ Review: A Sinister Series with Killer Sound [Fantastic Fest]

“If there is no one there to hear the falling rain in the garden, what sound does it make?”  “If there’s nothing, it could be anything.”  This is Etta’s response to a philosophical question pertaining to the manipulation and dangers experienced from sound– a concept that is deviantly explored in Shudder’s upcoming series, Deadwax. Inspired by the Satanic Panic of the ‘70s where people demonized backmasking, a technique for playing the record backwards to reveal hidden messages, Shudder provides...

They had their first date at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in San Diego, and four years later, they adorned the space with loads of flowers and an elegant, black-tie vibe (just wait till you get a peek at that Oscar de la Renta gown) that still felt relaxed for their 150 guests.

Forty years ago today, AOR goons and rock purists were suddenly confronted with a sobering thought: What happens if a veteran rock act's idea to "go disco" not only resulted in a massive hit, but signaled the revival of a moribund career?

Soul Serenade: Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson, “Superman Lover”

We lost one of the greats when Yvonne Staples of the Staple Singers died this week. Rest in peace. Funk. The term means different things to different people. James Brown was funky. So is Parliament Funkadelic. Last week I told you about Chuck Brown. He was funky. But Miles Davis was also funky, and so is Chaka Khan. So what is funk? Well, I suppose the answer is that it’s in the ears of the listener. The bottom line is that if you hear a song and it gets you moving, it’s probably funky. Johnny ‘...

"We’ve had a lot of artists come on here, talented, but a bit confused. What you are giving us is a clear understanding of who you are, coming in with an amazing amount of talent."

Lionel Ritchie flips the concept of confusion, when a former contestant, Adam Sanders, returns to audition in drag as Ada Vox. As Gay Times put it: "Vox then slayed the mother-tucking house when he performed a stunning rendition of House Of The Rising Sun by The Animals."Come on, The Animals didn't write "House of the Rising Sun." There was another contestant (Zach D'Onofrio) who said he was singing "'Cry Me A River' by Michael Buble." This is crazy talk. "House of the Rising Sun" is an old folk...

I Never Give Up

I backed the “I Will Never Give Up” project a few minutes ago. Story telling doesn’t get much better than this. My name is Mike Yung and I am a subway singer from New York City. I was signed to RCA at 14, then T.Electric with the likes of Etta James and Luther Vandross. The label went bankrupt and I never got my debut album out. I’ve spent the past 38 years in the subway busking and making a living while supporting a family in the projects of Brownsville. With your help, at 58 years old, I hope...

Takashi, Red and Art

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed contemporary artist Takashi Murakami (go here). He's the father of the Superflat art movement. You're probably most familiar with his colorful designs for Louis Vuitton bags popular a bunch of years ago (see pattern below). Superflat art features two-dimensional color works of pop subjects influenced by Japanese manga and anime. I caught Murakami's show at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts a couple of months ago and wanted to interview him for...

It turns most of the seasonal music played during the holidays isn't the classics — it only seems that way (P)

No matter where I go during the holidays, the seasonal songs I seem to hear most often are the oldies — tunes such as Ella Fitzgerald's rendition of "Sleigh Ride," Bing Crosby's "White Christmas," and Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas." About the most modern songs I ever hear are Wham!'s "Last Christmas," which dates from the 80s, and Etta James' nearly 20-year-old — but classic-sounding — songs from her "12 Songs of Christmas" album. If you ever wander through a mall or a brick-and-mortar store d...

Soul Serenade: Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, “Merry Christmas, Baby”

Christmas is all about tradition. We all have things that we do every year around the holidays. In recent years I have become part of some nice traditions that I really look forward to. One of my traditions is to write a Christmas entry for this series every year and this year is no exception. Last year I celebrated with Otis Redding’s 1968 version of the classic “Merry Christmas, Baby.” This year I thought I would take you back to the song’s origins, 21 years earlier.

Too Tall to Feel Small: The Case for Eurythmics' Induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominating committee's yearly announcement of the latest batch of potential inductees always generates the same reaction: a combination of sputtering outrage by fans of those deserving artists who've been shunned, and jubilation by fans of those who made the cut. The annual debate over the list of nominees is as inevitable as the announcement itself. The Hall of Fame has been harshly criticized for some of its more inexplicable exclusions and for negle...
