Stay High
by Brittany Howard
(64 plays) | (0 fans)

Brittany Howard's solo LP is named after her older sister Jaime, who taught Howard to play piano and write poetry, and who died of cancer as a teenager. “I wrote this record as a process of healing. Every song, I confront something within me or beyond me. Things that are hard or impossible to change, words and music to describe what I’m not good at conveying to those I love, or a name that hurts to be said: Jaime,” Howard wrote.: https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2019/06/brittany-howard-announces-debut-solo-album-fall-to.html

Jane Says
by Jane's Addiction
(73 plays) | (1 fan)

"Jane Says" uses only two chords for most of the song. The original recording from Jane's Addiction features bongos and is sung in a lower register than later versions. The version that appears on "Nothing's Shocking" makes extensive use of steel drums played by Stephen Perkins in place of the original's bongos.
