Question of the Day: True or Falsetto?

by Corny O'Connell
Epic Records

After searching our files here at the WFUV Question of the Day, we realize that we've never asked for your favorite examples of falsetto singing. Let's do that today. In the comments below, suggest a song featuring falsetto. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Bon Iver "Calgary"

Cream "Strange Brew"

Beck "Debra"

The Rolling Stones "Emotional Rescue"

Robby Hecht - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Robby Hecht is one of the rare Nashville-based artists who's actually a Tennessee native. Though he's a low-key kind of guy, he's had a number of collaborations with his fellow Nashville songwriters - most notably with Amy Speace on "The Sea and the Shore." She recorded the song with John Fullbright, but Robby gave us his own solo version, plus a couple of other originals, in this conversation for the Sunday Breakfast.

Question of the Day: Movie Mentions

by Corny O'Connell

On Ray LaMontagne's latest, Supernova, he sings, "I wanna be Brando in The Wild One" - a reference to the 1953 film starring Marlon Brando as the leader of a motorcycle gang. There are a lot of songs that mention actors, but how many can you name that reference particular movies? List them in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Thanks to Gordon from Brooklyn for suggesting this WFUV Question of the Day.

Here's what we played:
