Some music happenings:
Lots of music singles for Haiti. There is the Hope for Haiti with a bunch of artists. Lionel Richie got a bunch of celebrities together to remake We Are The World (“flashes of Quincy”). (Which still won’t be as good as the Band Aid’s Do The Know It’s Chirstmas or the less popular but still amazing version by Gram Aid.) Simon Cowel put together a star studded remake of Everybody hurts. And last, but not least, is Shane MacGowan and his bat-shit crazy partner are covering I Put A Spell On You also with celebrity backing.
AA Bondy is the singer-songwriter/indie-ballad type that Norah should be all over. He gets a lot of plays on my ipod because he is the first artist alphabetically and gets covered a lot on Rollo & Grady, but I mention him now cause he has a session available at Daytrotter.
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are coming out with a new album and are giving away their first single.
