Wes Anderson's music guru Randall Poster produced this tribute with Gelya Robb, and it's as inspired as their 2011 LP Rave On Buddy Holly. Aside from Antony's sparkling "Landslide," the less-familiar stuff is most striking. Trixie Whitley turns "Before the Beginning" into a howling séance; Billy Gibbons steers "Oh Well" away from the Ren Faire. Some radio staples – including the Kills' leaden "Dreams" – fizzle, but Best Coast give "Rhiannon" a Courtney-meets-Darlene Love vibe. And Lykke Li's synth-y "Silver Springs" shows all those dream-pop texture sluts dominating indie rock the magic ingredient: songwriting.

    “Hungry Like the Wolf”

    Duran Duran | 1982

    This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
