Close call!

Last night, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, held in El Lay, inducted the likes of Donna Summer, Quincy Jones, Randy Newman, Rush, Albert King, Public Enemy, Heart and Lou Adler!

And while there was a myriad of star-studded guest speakers and performers for the special occasion, including Oprah Winfrey, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, and John Mayer, one expected performer was NOTICEABLY missing in action:

Ah-Mazing!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it's 2013 class of inductees, and we're pleased as punch by the bands and artists on the list!

Our fave ones to make the cut include Heart, Rush, Public Enemy, and — obvi — Donna Summer!

Heart wrote one of the best chick-rock songs ever with Crazy on You!

Public Enemy's Flavor Flav and Chuck D fought the powers that be for decades!

After being consistently overlooked, Canadian prog-rockers and Ayn Rand enthusiasts Rush finally get the recognition they deserve!

And, of course, the late/great Donna Summer touched all of us so profoundly that we would never ever argue against her inclusion!

Even I Love L.A. singer Randy Newman is joining in on the fun!

We expect much of the talented class to perform at the Nokia Center induction ceremony in April!

Barbra Streisand Gets Poetic & Wordy In The Rain!

Barbra Streisand recently unveiled her new album, Release Me, which is FULL of unreleased songs from her own personal vault!

We previously let you listen to her version of Randy Newman’s I Think It’s Going To Rain Today and now we get to see the songwriting process in a whole new light!

Check out the words being brought to life (above) in the lyric video!!!

Wow, that was probably one of the most engaging lyric vids we’ve seen!

The song was recorded back in 1971, but was cut from her iconic album, Stoney End.

We are SO happy it FINALLY surfaced! What did we ever do without it?!

Randy Newman: I'm Dreaming Of A White President

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikBarack Obama

Randy Newman, the fingers on the piano and voice behind You've Got A Friend In Me, has released a new song called I'm Dreaming.

Don't expect to hear this in the next Toy Story movie though. It's a politically charged satire of (some) Americans' desire for a "more qualified white man" to be president again.

In a press release that discusses opposition to Barack Obama simply because of his skin color, the songwriter explained:
