Lollapalooza Day 2: Wayne Coyne's Orgasmic Plan

August 5, 2006 11:13 PM ET

Today there were so many great bands to see, it was a little intimidating. But after Wayne Coyne invited us to have a seat on his couch/throne backstage we felt much better. The Flaming Lips frontman was generous enough to share a secret scheme that he and his wife devised for staging the world's most orgasmic concert. We also met up with Built to Spill rock god (and insanely nice guy) Doug Martsch, who gave us his take on the festival. Then we just had to find out why this dude was randomly painting a car near the vegan ice-cream sandwich stand. More encounters will be posted on Sunday night.

“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.
