Cool Music Stuff on the Internet - REM, Coldplay, Laura Marling, Van Morrison, Best Songs of 2011

By now everyone has heard the news that REM is calling it quits, which is sad to think of the end of such an amazing band who's made such amazing music over the years, providing the soundtrack for our lives (Nightswimming, anyone?).  REM's reach is such that even giant rockstars are saddened by the news- provoking Chris Martin and Coldplay to do a bittersweet and lovely cover of Everybody Hurts during a performance in Georgia. You can listen to it HERE (via We All Want Someone to Shout For).

Laura Marling played at the world famous Troubadour in LA recently, and Rawkblog has some great footage of her performance, HERE.

Song of the Day has a lovely version of Caravan by Van Morrison.  Van changes the tempo ever so slightly and we are left to hear a song that sounds quite different from the original. Check it out HERE.

Now that fall is here, We All Want Someone to Shout For has posted the Best Songs of 2011 So Far HERE.
