Mr. Oizo is a man of many sounds – and for his new track "Solid," the French DJ-producer steps into the dark with Marilyn Manson. Mr. Oizo serves up frantic, brooding synths and piles them over Manson's creepy, spliced refrain. "You look like shit when you dance," Manson sings with disjointed glee over Oizo's needling arpeggios.

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
