Can you teach me how to dance? Don McLean releases dance remix of classic song "American Pie"

UMe/Capitol

As part of Don McLean's continuing 50th anniversary celebrations for his classic song "American Pie," a special dance remix of the tune created by Australian electronic dance-music outfit L'Tric was released Friday via digital formats.

McLean was personally involved in making the remix, sharing his input and notes with L'Tric. The track features the singer/songwriter's original vocals accompanied by a pulsing dance beat, hand claps and some modern electronic flourishes.

"American Pie" was originally released in October 1971 along with McLean's studio album of the same name. The song spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early '72.

L'Tric's "American Pie" remix arrives between the new children's book Don McLean's American Pie: A Fable, which was published earlier this month, and the recently announced documentary The Day the Music Died: The Story of Don McLean's "American Pie," which will premiere in theaters and on Paramount+ in July.

Meanwhile, McLean continues his American Pie 50th Anniversary Tour with a show Friday night in San Antonio, Texas.

Cyndi Lauper, Cher and others weigh in on Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court on Friday ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade and the fundamental right to abortion that has been the law for almost 50 years. The court ruled 6-3 in an opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito. The court upheld a Mississippi law that bans all abortion past 15 weeks, with very few medical exceptions. Now, some musicians and songwriters have taken to social media to express their horror and dismay at the ruling.

Cyndi Lauper posted a photo of herself wearing a T-shirt that says, "Girls just want to have fun...damental rights" and wrote, "Today is hard, but we are not done here because in this country the conversation and fight for our civil rights will always continue. Equality for all, not just for some. Stand together with those who need our help most right now." She linked to abortionfunds.org.

 

Cher tweeted, "TODAY, TRUMPS RADICAL (REPUBLICAN) SUPREME COURT, BECAME RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN WOMEN. THEY CAN’T BE PROSECUTED, BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE… 'THEY ARE GUILTY.' WHAT OTHER RIGHTS (WE TAKE 4 GRANTED) ARE NEXT? BE AFRAID BE VERY AFRAID."

Carole King tweeted, "Taking a right away from more than half the population affects every member of a family. Reproductive healthcare is on the ballot. Organize & plan your vote."

Bette Midler tweeted, "They did it. THEY DID IT TO US! #SCOTUS has overturned #RoevWade, enshrined in the Constitution as settled law for over 50 years. How dare they? This #SCOTUS is absolutely tone-deaf to the will and even the actual needs of the American people. #WakeUpAmerica."

Hit-making songwriter Diane Warren tweeted, "Welcome to the live version of the Handmaids Tale."

New York Yankees offering Jerry Garcia Bobblehead giveaway on what would've been Garcia's 80th birthday

Courtesy of New York Yankees

If you're a Grateful Dead fan who also happens to like the New York Yankees, here's some cool news for you: The first 1,000 fans who purchase a special-event ticket to the Yankees' August 1 home game will receive a collectible Jerry Garcia Bobblehead doll.

The promotion takes place on what would've been the late Garcia's 80th birthday. The doll depicts Garcia with gray hair and a gray beard holding a guitar and wearing a Yankees home jersey, complete with pinstripes, the team's interlocking NY logo on the front and the number 80 on the back.

Tickets to the game, which will feature the Yankees facing off against the Seattle Mariners, are available now at MLB.com. A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to The Grateful Dead's Rex Foundation charity, which supports people involved with creative endeavors in the arts, sciences and education.

Fans can pick up their doll at Yankee Stadium by heading to the Bobblehead redemption table located on the Field Level next to Gate 2 up to one hour after the game's first pitch is scheduled to be thrown.

It's worth noting that a number of Grateful Dead fans have taken exception to the Yankees-themed Garcia Bobblehead, with some pointing out in the comments of a post on Jerry's Facebook page that, as a native of the Bay Area, the legendary musician was a big San Francisco Giants fan.

Garcia died August 9, 1995, at the age of 53.

Stephen Stills sells his recorded music assets to Eagles manager Irving Azoff's Iconic Artists Group

Daniel Knighton/Getty Images

Stephen Stills has joined the growing ranks of famous rock artists who have sold the rights to their musical recordings for a big payday.

Stills' recorded music assets have been acquired by longtime Eagles manager Irving Azoff's Iconic Artists Group company, whose roster also includes David Crosby, Linda Ronstadt and The Beach Boys.

The 77-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist's recorded assets include his solo work as well as music he created as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Manassas, The Stills-Young Band and other projects. Stills has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice -- with Buffalo Springfield and CSN.

The agreement also includes an interest in Stephen's band trademarks and the use of his name and likeness.

In the wake of the acquisition, plans are in the works to release an archival live solo album that Stills recorded in 1971 in Berkeley, California, in support of his second solo album, Stephen Stills 2, and an expanded, 50th anniversary reissue of Manassas' 1972 self-titled debut album.

"Music is one of the greatest driving forces in my life, a means to communicate a universal language, and it's comforting to know my life's work is in the very best hands with Irving and the Iconic team," Stills says in a statement. "With the unreleased recordings I'm uncovering from my vault, and the 50th anniversary of Manassas, it couldn't have been a more opportune time."

Adds Azoff, "I have had the pleasure of knowing Stephen for more than 50 years and he is certainly one of rock's most enduring American treasures. I'm pleased that we will be working together to preserve, expand, and share his musical legacy for his next generation of fans."

Austin Butler felt "a responsibility" to get 'Elvis' right

Credit: Alon Amir

When Austin Butler signed on to play Elvis Presley in Elvis, the new biopic about the musician's life, he knew it wouldn't be a walk in the park to step into the King of Rock 'n' Roll's blue suede shoes.

"I've never felt a responsibility like this," Butler told ABC News. "Anytime you take on somebody who's actually lived their life, there's a responsibility. But with Elvis, it's something I've never felt before."

The film’s director, Baz Luhrmann, echoed his sentiment, saying it was important to both of them that Butler did not do an impersonation of Presley. "Elvis is the most impersonated person in history. We had to have a person," he said. "Austin really did fuse his spirit with that of Elvis'. He shows the man, not the icon, you know."

Butler's performance as Presley tried to combat "all the misconceptions" of those impersonations -- the caricatures and the Halloween costumes -- that Butler says make people look "up to him almost in a godlike way" and, in turn, take the singer's "life out of context."

"I was just so fascinated by stripping all that away," Butler said.

Elvis hits theaters today, but it premiered at Cannes Film Festival last month -- where it was treated to a 10-minute standing ovation during and after the end credits.

"I'm getting to now see people responding to all the work that we did," Butler said. "And it just feels so good that people are appreciating and getting to see him in a way they haven't maybe before."

Madonna performs at Pride event with drag queens, makes out with a rapper

It's been a while since Madonna has performed live in the U.S., but since it's Pride Month, the longtime ally hit the stage last night at New York City's Terminal 5 for a special event.

The event was hosted by the NFT platform World of Women, with whom Madonna has collaborated before. According to Billboard, she performed a remix of her hit "Hung Up" with female Dominican rapper Tokischa, with whom she then made out. She also performed with LGBTQ rapper Saucy Santana on a mash-up of her classic "Material Girl" and his song of the same name.

Billboard also reports that Madonna appeared on stage with famous drag queens -- including Bob the Drag Queen and Violet Chachki -- and her son David Banda. During her big finale, she performed "Celebration," the title track of her 2009 compilation.

But Madonna wasn't just celebrating Pride -- the event also doubled as a record release party for Finally Enough Love, her dance remix compilation. The 16-track version of the package is out today; the full 50-track version comes out August 19, a few days after Madonna's birthday.

You can see footage of Madonna's rehearsals for last night's event on her Instagram Story.

The Zombies kick off North American summer tour tonight after canceling two shows because of COVID

Bobby Bank/Getty Images

After The Zombies canceled two shows in Ontario, Canada, this week because founding singer Colin Blunstone and keyboardist Rod Argent contracted COVID-19, the band launches the second leg of its 2022 Life Is a Merry-Go-Round Tour tonight in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.

Interestingly, Blunstone also celebrates his 77th birthday today.

The North American summer trek features 26 shows, and is mapped out through a three-night stand, July 28-30, in Park City, Utah.

Fans who attend the shows can expect the British Invasion group to perform their classic hits, some deeper cuts from their 1960s heyday and a few brand-new tunes that will be featured on the band's upcoming studio album, which is expected to be released in the coming months.

Argent tells ABC Audio that it's very important for the band to continue to make new music and to include fresh material in their concerts. He also notes that in general, Zombies fans have been reacting very positively to the new songs that the group has been performing.

"Obviously, if we play 'Time of the Season,' the place erupts," Argent explains. "But…[when we play a] new song after that, [while the reaction isn't] quite as amazing as we get after 'Time of the Season'…it's a really, really significant reaction…So people embrace that as well."

One of the new tunes The Zombies are playing is "Merry-Go-Round," which is the song that the tour is named after. Argent says "Merry-Go-Round" was one of the first tracks that the band recorded for the upcoming album, and he feels that it could be chosen as a single.

You can check out The Zombies' full schedule at TheZombiesMusic.com. No word yet if the canceled Ontario shows will be rescheduled.

Saturday marks the 13th annual observance of Global Beatles Day

Courtesy of Global Beatles Day

The 13th annual Global Beatles Day will be observed on Saturday, June 25.

The event, which was founded in 2009 by an Indianapolis-based Beatles fan named Faith Cohen, was established to honor the music and ideals of the Fab Four's members and their many contributions to the world's culture, including their promotion of peace and love.

June 25 was chosen as the date of the annual event because that was the day in 1967 that The Beatles' performance of "All You Need Is Love" was part of Our World, a famous satellite broadcast that aired around the world.

This year, in addition to generally celebrating the band on June 25, Cohen is asking people to send a link to a video of the 1967 "All You Need Is Love" performance, which can be found at DailyMotion.com, to "10 people who matter" as a way to spread the message of peace and love around the world.

"This could be to family, friends and coworkers or elected officials," Cohen says. "It could be kings, queens, princes, presidents, ambassadors, military leaders and law enforcement organizations."

She adds, "We want them to send links to 10 people or organizations that matter in running our world and keeping it going. Then we want them to ask those 10 entities to send it on to 10 more and ask them to do the same. On and on … Send the link to those in power, from the local to global level, who keep the world running."

You also can check out Cohen's general suggestions for 10 ways you can celebrate Global Beatles Day at the event's official site.

Interestingly, Paul McCartney's headlining set at England's Glastonbury Festival coincides with the 2022 Global Beatles Day.
