In an effort to "beat the Master to it," comedian Tim Heidecker has released his own epic song, "Titanic," inspired by Bob Dylan. Last week, Dylan revealed that his upcoming album Tempest will feature a 14-minute title track about the sunken ship. Heidecker's take is 15 minutes, 11 seconds long and accompanied by a video.

Heidecker's version is available now through his website. Bob Dylan's Tempest is set for release on September 11th.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
