Outasight knows a good time, and on his fun-loving debut record Nights Like These, the Yonkers, New York, native has a blast mixing pop, rock and rap into a potent cocktail. Opener "Let's Go" takes its title literally, kicking in with hand claps and a serrated guitar riff as Outasight heats things up with motormouthed flow, while the uplifting "I'll Drink To That 1" builds with careful acoustic picking and cinematic spirit. "Ready Set Go" drives forward with a bright electro thump and more of Outasight's playful raps, and the smooth crooning and hypnotic, pulsating club beat of "Under Lock and Key" drips with emotion. It's a party record, and it's due November 27th.

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.
