"Wait!...did I just rock out with Bon Jovi tonight???" Rihanna tweeted after joining the band for "Livin' On A Prayer" at a pre-European Music Awards concert in Madrid Saturday night. "WTFFFF!!!!!!!" The surprise duet was the highlight of the intimate gig, which also featured "Wanted Dead or Alive" and Bon Jovi's new single "What Do You Got?" Sadly, Rihanna didn't convince the group to tackle "Rude Boy" or "Shut Up And Drive."

“Nightshift”

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.
