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.

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.
