After the curveball Atari falsetto rush of "One Way Trigger," the Strokes drop another jam from the pending Comedown Machine, and it's 2001 all over again: a tuneful, tight, three-minute rocker tossed into an EDM-ish pop scene like a louche grenade. Even better, they've bulked up a bit and sound like U2 flipping through old indie-rock 45s.

    “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.
