September 30, 2008 9:01 AM ET

With her new album Circus ready to go, Britney Spears told New York pop radio station Z100 yesterday that she's planning on embarking on a massive tour. "Oh definitely, next year," Spears said of her tour plans, adding that the jaunt would likely take her "around the world." The tour would be Spears' first large scale set of shows since 2004. Talking also about her three VMA award wins and the "Piece of Me" video, Spears said "It's a cool video, but I think by far I've done videos that are way better, so I was really shocked that it got the award." Spears also said that her role on Circus is complete and that she expects the album to be released December 2nd, her 27th birthday and the rumored release date for Jay-Z's Blueprint 3.

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.
