The Pixies masterpiece Doolittle had its 20th anniversary in April 2009 — and in fact, the band's follow-up LP Bossanova just turned 20 this past August — so the reunited rockers are giving fans a free download of a live EP featuring four songs recorded during the band's recent tour. Head over to the Pixies site to download three tracks from the album Rolling Stone named as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All-Time — "Gouge Away," "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and "Crackity Jones" — plus the b-side "Dancing the Manta Ray."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
