Weezer, Feels Like Summer video (Roses N’ Weezer Version)
Rivers Cuomo and company amp up the cognitive dissonance by pairing live footage of the band, dressed in full Guns N’ Roses regalia, with this feel-good anthem whose sunny hooks mask incongruously bleak lyrics. Kind of endearing, really.
A.J. Croce, Just Like Medicine
Piano man Croce gets the full-on Southern soul treatment here with the aid of legends Dan Penn, Steve Cropper, Leon Russell and Muscle Shoals Horns. He also covers a song by his late father, Jim Croce, for the first time on what, in many cases, is his most satisfying and personal album to date.
