I absolutely love Rickie Lee Jones, perhaps my favorite singer…but I hate to pick favorites. I hadn’t seen this before tonight, mmmm, me like. It seems like the only song anyone associates with Rickie Lee is Chuck E’s in Love, she has made a lot of really nice music since then.
This is from David Letterman’s show. One of my favorites, it brings back memories of a time…
Here is one for a lazy Saturday night.
You have to go over to Youtube to watch it, but it is well worth it.
Check out this music video from Common. I’m not a huge rap or hip-hop fan but I like this.
I love this version of the song, Manu Katche’s drumming is amazing.
I saw this tour and “In Your Eyes” brought the house down. It was one of those “peak aesthetic experiences”, pretty cool. (It’s long, 10 minutes)
Her first big hit “Chuck E.’s In Love”. I like her so much, I even named my dog after her.
The story is here, thanks to Steve Benen. Now, let’s cut to the video of Peter Gabriel honoring Stephen Biko who was murdered by the apartheid government of South Africa.
Sorry about the ad that plays…it’s only 15 seconds. One of my favorite Dave Matthews tunes.
If you like Rickie Lee Jones and Steely Dan, you will really like this one. I listened to it twice after first hearing it.
Or maybe you would prefer a little Stevie Ray Vaughn.
This is from a Kate Bush Christmas Special with the baby-faced Peter Gabriel singing “Here Comes the Flood”. There is a fun little intro that might throw you off.
