Katy Perry’s “93 Bonnie And Clyde”
Katy Perry released her greatest hits album “Katy Perry: Witness” earlier this month. The album features 16 tracks from Perry’s career, as well as two exclusive new songs, including a cover of “93 Bonnie And Clyde” from Perry’s 2007 album “Teenage Dream.” While many of the songs on Witness are familiar from Perry’s catalog, “93 Bonnie And Clyde” is a somewhat surprising version of the track, as the rapper samples Dean Martin’s “How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?” And Perry’s past duets with people like Niall Horan and Jason Derulo are absent on the new album.
Feet on the Fire by LL Cool J
LL Cool J performs a 10-minute rendition of “Foot On The Fire” in his new Netflix series, “L.A. Confidential,” and the show proves to be a testament to the continuing rise of hip-hop. Throughout the series, LL Cool J raps songs by Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, B. B. King, The Beastie Boys, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Dr. Dre, LL Cool J, Jadakiss, and other MCs.

Summer by the Hives
Most of the Spotify playlists you hear in your daily life focus on pop songs that come on, or keep you entertained at work or home. However, another Spotify playlist, called “Tunes to Play Now” features songs that are “all about you,” specifically the music that moves you to dance, dance some more, or want to give it some oratorical flourish.
Sultans of Swing by the Incredibles
Before the movie came out, director Brad Bird explained that “Sultans of Swing” was “something I’ve wanted to write for a long time, but I never got around to it. I’m super grateful to Pixar for finding the film and giving me the opportunity to include it in the film.” This Pixar movie is playing in theaters right now, but in the ’80s, an adorable animated series about three cats named Fluffy, Woof, and Chip was a huge hit on the I, Robot channel.
“Hijack The Pep Rally” by the Notorious B.I.G.
In the early ’90s, Biggie Smalls gave us “Hook ‘N Sling,” “You Be Killin’ Em,” and “Juicy,” but his other hits were much more fun. There’s something so touching about the Boyz II Men cover of “Hijack The Pep Rally,” as well as his heartfelt version of Bob Marley’s “War.”
