Want to hear Adam West performing “Miranda” from Batmania: Songs Inspired By The Batman TV Series? Of course you do! Who in their right mind wouldn’t! Rumors are West used to perform the number (which includes references to the show) in complete costume. Now that’s something I wish I could have seen. Thanks to Chris Sims for bringing this forgotten gem to our attention!
Let it never be said that I can’t change musical directions in a heartbeat. Something about the mid-afternoon just called out for some soul, so here’s the late, great Tyrone Davis performing my personal favorite tune o’ his, the 1968 heartbreaker “Can I Change My Mind?“:
Conan O’Brien might be going away, but he’s not doing it quietly. Last night the late night host unveiled his new philosophy “we can do whatever we want, and they have to pay for it. So for the rest of the week we’re going to introduce new comedy bits that aren’t so much funny as crazy expensive.” The first bit: a Bugatti Veyron mouse introduced to the Rolling Stones hit â€œSatisfaction.â€ The cost? $1.5 Million. The look on NBC’s execs faces when learning of this? Priceless. Nicely played sir.
Just a friendly reminder that the third season of Chuck begins tonight with a pair of episodes before returning to its regular spot tomorrow on Monday nights. To help get you in the mood here’s Jeffster performing “Mr. Roboto” from last season’s finale guest-starring Chevy Chase and Scott Bakula.
Paul Simon has called the title track to his 1986 album, “Graceland” to be the best song he’s ever written.

“The Mississipi Delta was shining like a National guitar…”
23 years on, and it’s still perfect. Even more perfect is this live rendition from Willie Nelson & Paul that takes the song in a decidedly more Western fashion, but loses none of its impact. Enjoy:
