Click to listen to Craig Wedren's 'I Know'

Craig Wedren's latest album, Wand, finds the veteran indie rocker sounding revitalized following a reunion with his old band Shudder to Think. The record plays up Wedren's versatile songwriting talent and his gorgeous, wonderfully elastic voice, but the best cuts play up a rocking intensity that has been missing from his work in recent years. "I Know," the disc's heaviest cut, is super-charged and beat-heavy, with Wedren's voice taking on a gleefully mischievous tone as he sings, "It's fun to treat you badly." Wand is in stores now, but you can download "I Know" for free here.

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.
