Jill brought in this compilation album to celebrate Neil Diamond's Saint Paul show at the Xcel Energy Center. "Cherry, Cherry" was released as a single in July 1966. It was penned by Neil Diamond and produced by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich. It's really easy to learn on guitar. Three chords (E-A-D) and you'll impress everyone at your next party.
The self-titled, debut record from Aerosmith that featured the hit single "Dream On."
This record marked a transition from singer-songwriter to the fuller rock/pop Elton John sound. Elton's touring band was utilized in the making of this record and the production is just spot on. We played the New Orleans-sound influenced track "Honky Cat."

Tim Meadows has long been a mainstay of the comedian community since his debut skits on Saturday Night Live in the early '90s.
Don't be confused by Afie Jurvanen going by the stage name Bahamas - he isn't from a tropical location, even if his music does have some tropical influences. The Canadian musician has been making music in his hometown for years as a backing musician for the likes of Feist, Jason Collett and Zeus.
My pick this time for Musicheads Essentials is the 1980 avant-pop masterpiece from Talking Heads, Remain in Light. Written during a chapter of extreme creative exploration for the band, Remain in Light is not only considered by many to be Talking Heads' crowning achievement, but one of the greatest albums of the 1980s.
Ben Kweller has been in the music scene nearly the entire 30 years he's been alive. He received his first nod from Billboard Magazine when he was eight with a songwriting honorable mention. He was signed before he could legally drive and was touring the world shortly after that.
Lizzy Grant's Lana Del Rey persona may be new to the broader world, but she's been singing for years and even released an album prior to 2012's already controversial "Born To Die."
