Click to listen to Penguin Prison's 'Don't Fuck With My Money'

Penguin Prison's new single, "Don't Fuck With My Money," updates the smooth, effortlessly funky sound of late Seventies disco classics by Chic and Michael Jackson with a sleek modern production style that recalls hits by Phoenix, Scissor Sisters and Hot Chip. The entire track is a groovy delight, but the soaring, falsetto-heavy climax is particularly excellent. Penguin Prison's debut album is in stores now, but you can download "Don't Fuck With My Money" for free here.

“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.
