Seventy-nine-year-old Michigan woman Evie Branan woke up from a five-year coma this month and had a single wish: to see a Bob Seger concert. She had remarkable timing. Seger is on a relatively rare tour, and it hit Michigan's Palace of Auburn Hills this week. Branan got to live her dream, and she even went backstage to meet Seger. It was the feel-good rock story of the year.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
