[quote]Stevie Nicks secured an agreement from Prince to use the music from "Little Red Corvette" for her hit song, "Stand Back". But, that was an obvious thing - she was listening to the song on a long car drive and wrote alternate lyrics. Prince agreed, but insisted he play the keyboards so they wo...

[quote]When I first heard this song, I immediately assumed it was a cover because it sounded so familiar, but I didn't spend any time thinking about where I had heard it before. So in fact it does get its value from a familiar hook, so I think it was a fair settlement that they came to. I also belie...

[quote]I enjoy The Stones, and Sympathy for the Devil is one of my favorite songs of all time. I just enjoy the records The Beatles put out much more overall, especially the later ones. The White Album, Revolver, Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper's, and Let It Be are all albums I can listen to all the way thr...

The best gifts truly are the most thoughtful and creative ones.
But if you aren't really close to the person you're buying a gift for (like, direct family or SO), then you can't really be that thoughtful. And if the gift isn't thoughtful, then it better at least be valuable or useful, and that's...

And to be fair, they were probably better than they would be with Freddie Mercury at age 68. Age is not kind to vocalists... ...

[quote]I've always found this song to be fricking insufferable.
Don't get me wrong, the Beach Boys are one of the most influential bands of all time and my admiration for what they did in the 60's and even the early 70's has grown as I've gotten older. However, this 80's "gem" was gag-inducing and ...

[quote]You must mean getting them? I made a mistake I won't ever again and bought a few of them for the admin that I work with for Christmas. I was at Safeway and they have a huge gift card section and so I didn't really pay attention to anything other than the company and the amount. So I pick up s...
