Formerly only available in skate shops, Yeah Right! is a skateboard film co-directed by Spike Jonze. Anyone could have filmed the gnarly street scenes, but only the twisted imagination of Jonze could have come up with Yeah Right!'s many cool touches. In itself, a super slo-mo close-up of a double kick flip is a sight to see, but watching a fifty-foot ollie across a street should get you scratching your head. In one stunning segment, the special-effects weirdness makes it look like one rider is tearing up the asphalt on an invisible skateboard.

    “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.
