Folksinger John Prine sought to augment his spare accompaniment with his fourth release, COMMON SENSE. He reigned in the formidable Steve Cropper (of Stax-Volt fame) to sit in the producer's chair and the result was a noted departure from the minimal sound of his prior releases. Though the sweetened up sound offended more than a few purists at the time, any keen ear can detect that Prine has lost none of his flair. The title carries all the clever turns of phrase and imaginative wordplay fans have come to expect from Prine. Very few writers could pull off a song about Americans' cynicism and indifference towards their own country without actually sounding cynical themselves. Prine does just that before launching into the freewheeling "Come Back to Us Barbara Lewis Hare Krishna Beauregard," a hilarious tale of a hippie's fruitless search for nirvana.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.
