Gil Scott-Heron – “New York Is Killing Me”

A little electronic mixed with hefty hand clapping makes the simplicity of this song completely unique.  Add in an old blues man voice and it’s something you’ve never heard before.  Plus, the guy has two last names so that counts for something.

Helping Haiti – “Everybody Hurts”

A classic song already, “Everybody Hurts” has been re-made to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake. A great song plus a great cause is a winner in our book.

Brandi Carlile – “Dreams”

We loves us some Brandi Carlile.  This song has some rockin’ acoustic with her signature pipes.  It’s very melodic and has some pretty great harmonies.  You’ll know by the end that Brandi Carlile has dreams.  Oh yes, she’s got dreams.
