New one from the Mexico City-based band that is named after the Afro-Carribean goddess, Yemaya. Guest vocalist Gaby Moreno recently told the Recording Academy about the song, "She's a powerful woman of color taking all forms. It's a universal theme and we wanted to incorporate this mysterious and mystic figure into the song, since it's part of the folklore of many different cultures."

The Chain
by Fleetwood Mac
(15 plays) | (0 fans)

Mick Fleetwood once said that, "The Chain' basically came out of a jam. That song was put together as distinct from someone literally sitting down and writing a song. It was very much collectively a band composition. The riff is John McVie's contribution - a major contribution."

Life On Mars?
by David Bowie
(121 plays) | (0 fans)

A song described by writer Neil McCormick as one that, "You want to raise your voice and sing along, yet Bowie’s abstract cut-up lyrics force you to invest the song with something of yourself just to make sense of the experience, and then carries you away to a place resonant with intense, individual emotion. The magic and mystery of music and lyrics. It is something to behold."
