35 of the most iconic movie songs of all time

Bette Midler, Barbara Hershey, Dyed Hair, Beaches

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins (“Footloose”)
The movie musical quickly became one of the biggest hits when it was released in 1984, in no small part thanks to Loggins’ now-iconic song. It’s impossible not to dance when you hear it, which is probably why the song topped the charts for three weeks in a row on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming such a massive hit that Loggins himself was blown away by its success.

MixTape MixUp
‘Bust A Move”s Recipe for Success
May 23, 2018

For a time in 1989, Marvin Young was responsible for some of the biggest commercial hip-hop hits of the day. A college senior, Young penned the lyrics for Tone Loc’s most famous songs and, under his performing alias Young MC, had a massive hit of his own with “Bust a Move.” To this day, no ‘80s hip-hop compilation is complete without his wise, yet self-deprecating lyrics, his smooth but speedy flow and a mix of samples that would make any crate-digger proud.

Apple Formally Asked Not to Kill iTunes Music Downloads By Group Of Artists Including Bette Midler #BetteMidler, #CreativeCommonsCoalition

Digital Music News
Apple Formally Asked Not to Kill iTunes Music Downloads
Paul Resnikoff May 2, 2018

Bette Midler, Creative Commons Coalition

As the guillotine dangles over the head of iTunes music downloads, artists are starting to take urgent action.  That includes the Content Creators Coalition (CCC), a top musician advocacy group.

During its latest earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t mention iTunes music downloads — not once.

Instead, the Apple chief proclaimed steady progress and booming revenues from a range of other, more modern platforms.  “We had all-time record revenue from the App Store, from Apple Music, from iCloud, from Apple Pay and more, all of which are a powerful illustration of the importance of our huge active installed base of devices and the loyalty and engagement of our customers,” Cook declared (here’s the full transcript).

8 Problematic Early Eminem Songs That Wouldn’t Fly In 2016 – Especially This Bette Midler Lyric

Mister D: Eminem may have a thing for Miss M since he also uses her song The Rose in the background for his rap “Arose” on his new album.

8 Problematic Early Eminem Songs That Wouldn’t Fly In 2016
10/24/2016
by Matthew Ismael Ruiz

 

Few musicians have been as polarizing as Eminem, hip-hop’s great white hope and the terror of the religious right. He built a career thriving off of others’ outrage, pushing himself to find the limits of what people deemed acceptable in pop music. At his best when he’s punching up, whether at a bully, rappers that underestimate him, or authority figures, he’s often looked real ugly, like when he’s attacking the mentally disabled. Read More

Former Harlette, Ula Hedwig, Has A Track On The New Album ‘Celebrate’ By Win Marcinak

Unlike the blues, dance music has long been the province of gay men, as both performers and fans. On Celebrate (Burning Tyger), Win Marcinak blends covers (Three Dog Night’s “Celebrate,” Sylvester’s “Disco Heat/Mighty Real,” Kajagoogoo’s “Too Shy,” and Aretha’s “Rock Steady”) with originals. Ulla Hedwig, one of Bette Midler’s original Harlettes, sings with Marcinak on “We Are What We Are.”

Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage

Billboard
Bette Midler, Jason Isbell Join Statement to Congress Urging CLASSICS Act Passage
12/20/2017 by Billboard Staff

A group of more than 40 artists, including Jason IsbellEmmylou HarrisHenry Rollins and Bette Midler, have signed a letter to Congress urging them to pass the CLASSICS Act, which would require digital radio services such as SiriusXM to pay royalties on pre-1972 sound recordings.

“Digital radio makes billions of dollars a year from airplay of music made before 1972,” the artists wrote. “Yet, because of an ambiguity in state and federal copyright laws, artists and copyright owners who created that music receive nothing for the use of their work. The ‘CLASSICS Act’ would correct this inequity and finally ensure that musicians and vocalists who made those timeless songs finally get their due. We urge Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act and other pro-artist reforms quickly.” Read More

Yes, Eminem Sampled Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’ On His New Album (Audio Embedded In Article) – What Do You Think?

Rolling Stone
Eminem’s ‘Revival’: A Track-by-Track Guide
By Elias Leight, Mosi Reeves, Al Shipley, Simon Vozick-Levinson
December 14, 2017

Eminem, the best-selling rapper of all time, returned at midnight with Revival, his first album in four years. The new LP sprawls across 19 tracks, touching on rock, gospel, pop and, of course, hard-bitten hip-hop. Eminem veers from sassy to self-deprecating, dependent to dismissive, murderous to politically conscious, uncontrollably lusty to borderline repentant, sometimes all within the same song. He raps over skeletal, golden-age beats courtesy of Rick Rubin and stirring piano ballads from longtime collaborator Alex da Kid; he teams up with locally known artists like Phresher as well as global stars like Beyoncé, Pink and Alicia Keys. Across it all, Eminem remains intent on convincing listeners that he’s still at the top of his game: “Will I ever fall off/That day’ll never come.” Here’s a guide to understanding the album’s producers, songwriters, guests and key themes.
