The Best Songs About Girls From A To Z, Part 2

February 1st, 2008 1:49pm EST
David Bowie
Here's part two of the best songs about girls with every letter of the alphabet, regardless of whether or not the subject of the song is the same as the title. There were two considerations in making the list: How good the song is versus how cool the chick sounds. See A to M here, and check out N to Z:

N: Darling Nikki by Prince because, if you will recall, all her masturbating with a magazine got Tipper Gore's panties all in a bunch, which in turn prompted the Explicit Lyrics stickers.

O: Ophelia by The Band. Pretty cool song, but mostly because there weren't many "O's."

Thievery Corporation Producer Rob Garza Releases 'Dust Galaxy'

November 11th, 2007 10:00am EST
Dust Galaxy
Having spent over the past ten years creating, producing, remixing and touring, Rob Garza has been influenced by an endless list of diverse artists. Some surprising, some not. In fact, for Dust Galaxy, he was more influenced by non-musicians… like Fernando Pessoa, Jose Orozco, Diego Rivera, Heinrich Zimmer, and Stanislav Grof.

"People often think that I spend all my time submerged in electronic music," but in reality, people are very surprised to find him at home in dive bars more often listening to rock, soul and psychedelic music. "What I love about some of my favorite records like...

April 2nd, 2007 4:10pm EDT
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters hits cinemas April 13 and if you're like me, you gotta wonder what the four main characters of rock to in their boom boxes. What follows is an odd eclectic mix of tunes - from Carl's big hair rock to Master Shake's collection of tunes about promiscuous women.

Carl:

Jailbreak - AC/DC

If you go to jail, why stay there? Get some friends with guns and dynamite to get you out.

Mr. Roboto - Styx

There's more to this song than meets the eye. He's like, in this jail for kick ass rockers, and he kills this robot and hides inside th...

Rhino Reissues Warren Zevon's 'Excitable Boy,' 'Stand In The Fire,' And 'The Envoy' March 27

March 14th, 2007 8:00pm EDT
Warren Zevon
Like no other singer-songwriter of his generation, Warren Zevon addressed murder, desperate passion, espionage, crippling loneliness, and f----you excess with a lethal wit and confessional grace that remain unrivaled. When the singer-songwriter-pianist succumbed to lung cancer in 2003, the music world lost a truly original voice. Rhino honors Zevon's brilliant lyrics, poignant melodies, withering wit, and devastating satire with a trio of reissues that revisit two of his finest studio efforts, plus a stunning live album. Remastered and expanded with previously unreleased bonus tracks, Excit...
