A man has been charged after breaking into Celine Dion's Montreal home and running a bath. According to police, 36-year-old Daniel Bedard jumped a fence to get onto the property and used a garage door opener in an unlocked vehicle to enter the house. Upon arrival, he raided the singer's refrigerator for pastries before heading to her bathroom to draw a bath. An alarm alerted police to the scene, who arrested him on the premises.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
