Without Further Ado, Here Is Every Cover Of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' We Could Find
Huffington Post - over 1 year
We know there is a secret chord that every musician in the whole wide world has played, and it pleases us all. Or rather, chords. More specifically, the chords that make up “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, whose death was announced via Facebook on Thursday. And actually, some renditions might please us more than others.  More famous than the original is Jeff Buckley’s version, an emotional take whose quiet intensity most artists find themselves trying to imitate. It’s perhaps most closely followed by Rufus Wainwright’s version, which appeared on the soundtrack to millennial favorite “Shrek.” K.D. Lang has covered the song, as has Neil Diamond, Bon Jovi, several contenders on “The Voice,” more than a few (very impressive) a cappella groups and dozens of other instrumentalists and vocalists alike. Below we’ve compiled a Spotify playlist with 141 versions of the song after Cohen’s original. That’s 10-and-a-half hours of “Hallelujah,” plus a few YouTube videos for good measure. Enjo...

One Of The Other Most Important Dr. Dre Facts Missing From Straight Outta Compton
Huffington Post - over 1 year
After witnessing Dr. Dre working in the studio for many years I would have to say that one of most important facts missing from the NWA movie is not just aspects of Dre's personal and political life and vision, but a clear description of the high level of sonic mastery and expertise that he has exhibited and presented to the world for the past 30 years. When Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin presented Def Jam's hip hop productions to the world with classics by Run-DMC, LL Kool J and Beastie Boys, they brought not only productions that had dynamic and socially relevant songs to the world, but also a level of sonic excellence that was achieved by bringing top musicians and mixing engineers into the studio to engineer and fine tune those sound recordings. The difference between Dr. Dre and most producers is that when most producers get to a level where they feel they have the songs strong enough, they then bring in top level Grammy award winning mixing engineers like Manny Maroquin, Se...

LeAnn Rimes displays bust on stage in plunging bodysuit
Fox News - over 1 year
Leann Rimes showed off more than just her singing skills while performing at London’s G-A-Y Heaven nightclub Saturday night. The 33 year old singer seductively bared plenty of skin in a one piece that barely contained her booming cleavage. Video from the performance showed the slender star discreetly adjusting her plunging, braless neckline while taking a swig of water in between renditions of hit songs like “How Do I Live” and “Life Goes On.” Apparently unconcerned about a potential wardrobe malfunction, snaps showed Rimes confidently squatting down on her black sexy, stiletto heels to wave at fans while performing in the super low cut, black bodysuit. With stick straight hair and skirt-like, bow-tie pants made of white satin, the child star appeared happy to be performing again in the wake of having scored a new recording deal last month with Sony to produce her 16th album. Rimes featured a photo of herself dancing on stage on her Instagram under a rain of multi-colored confetti with...

Kevin Rowland webchat – post your questions now
Guardian (UK) - almost 2 years
The Dexys frontman will answer your questions in a live webchat from 12 noon BST on Tuesday 24 May – post them in the comments below 2.17pm BST As the former frontman of Dexys Midnight Runners, Kevin Rowland became a star playing a unique style of ragged pop-soul. Come on Eileen and Geno were their big hits, the former still a wedding disco staple, but Rowland has created much more besides. He recorded two solo records after the Dexys days, including My Beauty, the cover of which saw him dressed in lipstick and lingerie, and which featured versions of songs like Daydream Believer and You’ll Never Walk Alone. Rowland has always revered classic songwriting, and, with Dexys reformed, continues the tradition with new album Let The Record Show Dexys Do Irish and Country Soul – it does what it says on the tin, covering the Bee Gees, LeAnn Rimes and more in an Irish style.
