It won't be easy to find a theater showing this new J-horror classic from director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (no relation to the great Akira). But it's worth dropping whatever you're doing to t the search. While crap like The Fog litters the multiplex, Kurosawa has to fight the amateurs for attention. Set in a sterile office building in Tokyo, the film concerns a computer virus and a rash of suicides. And that's all I'll say. Just know that Pulse possesses the dark art to make your pulse pound and your hair stand on end — with no cheating.

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
