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.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
