If you're not sure if you know who Orianthi is but you've seen Michael Jackson's movie "This is It" then you know her...she was playing lead guitar for his band on his final tour and is shown many times in the film. She's actually pretty incredible. Here she is doing a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child." I think even Jimi would like her.

Well, here's an example of a group whom I don't really love but I tolerate this song. It's way too countrified for my tastes. But, our fav terrestrial radio station plays it (several times a day) and Munchkin loves it (and I love the sentiment in the lyrics). In fact, we were just coming home from the healthfood store and she was humming this tune for the final 5 minutes of the ride. So...to honor her...here's "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes.
Caught a PBS special last night on the funk band War. I had forgotten how great they were and how many hits they had! I was trying to fall asleep but kept sitting up and watching more of the show since the songs were old favorites..."Spill the Wine," "Low Rider," "Why Can't We Be Friends." Here's a live version of "The Cisco Kid" from Midnight Special.
