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."

“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.
