Erykah Badu channels MJ in this very funky cover of "I Wanna Be Where You Are" with The Roots. Then we have a pair of new songs from the upcoming The Very Best album (one with M.I.A.), and a pair of new Velvet Underground covers from Beck's Record Club project. Finally, check out Levon Helm and his band jamming out to the Dead's "Tennessee Jed" on Letterman.
The Roots - I Wanna Be Where You Are feat. Erykah Badu [Gorilla vs. Bear]
The Very Best - Julia [I Guess I'm Floating]
The Very Best - Rain Dance feat. M.I.A. [I Guess I'm Floating]
Beck - I'm Waiting For The Man [We All Want Someone]
Beck - Femme Fatale [We All Want Someone]
Yet another example of that special quality that Obama brings to the table as President of the United States.
Levi seems to be enjoying this whole Sarah Palin meltdown thing.
“She had talked about how nice it would be to take some of this money people had been offering us and you know just run with it, say ‘forget everything else.'"
Good Morning America attempts to make the case that Obama wasn't necessarily being lecherous. But I'm still not so sure.
