With her debut EP, Into the Wild: Live At EastWest Studios, L.A. singer-songwriter LP gives a live look into her powerful, commanding sound. LP and her ukulele are seldom apart, and on Wild, the rising star keeps her emotions raw with her booming voice and big-time choruses. Like the title track, Into the Wild sounds triumphant and life-affirming with carefully layered and uplifting arrangements. The ukulele may seem quaint and quiet, but LP's sound is far from timid. LP is already working on her full-length due later this year and is set for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 25th. Into the Wild is out April 24th on Warner Bros.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
