Dr. Dolittle 2 is, well, you know what it is: a fast, fat paycheck for star Eddie Murphy. The original 1998 film grossed $144 million by having Murphy play a doctor who talks to his critter patients, who squeak and squawk and fart prodigiously in return. This time Murphy is back with more alleged family fun, playing matchmaker for two bears, voiced by Steve Zahn and Lisa Kudrow, and trying to save their forest habitat. Kill me now!

    “Wake Up Everybody”

    John Legend and the Roots | 2010

    A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
