The iTunes Weekly Rewind
Glee, Brendan Benson, Danny Elfman, Hispanic Heritage Month (#51)
Glee, Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards, Brendan Benson, Danny Elfman, Oingo Boingo, Hispanic Heritage Month. We casually mention the term power pop in referencing our Genius Pick of the Week, which combines an old and a new track by Brendan Benson: “Cold Hands (Warm Heart)” (off of 2005’s The Alternative To Love) and “Eyes On The Horizon” (off of this year’s My Old, Familiar Friend). Probably best known as partner to Jack White in the Raconteurs, Benson’s the one who supplies the catchier pop confections to White’s harder blues riffs, who also has four solo albums to call his own.
