At 48, Pixies singer Black Francis has either lost or abandoned his flair for sounding like the most unhinged man in indie rock. On "Indie Cindy," off this four-song EP, he declares himself "the burgermeister of purgatory." But like Joey Santiago's stocky washes of distorted guitar, he sounds more collected than the circumstances demand. That's no way to get Cindy back, Francis.

    “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.
