They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) – (by Pete Rock and CL Smooth) 
They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) by Pete Rock and CL Smooth was a hip hop classic. From the 1992 album Mecca & the Soul Brother, I can't believe it's 30 years old. Sampling a bit of Tom Scott's version of Jefferson Airplane's "Today", it tells...

Top Gun: Maverick (dir. by Joseph Kosinski) 
From the moment it was announced, I had low expectations for Top Gun: Maverick. I figured it was just Tom Cruise milking his other franchise for what it's worth. I mean, I adore the Mission: Impossible movies, but was there ever really a need to...

Today (by Tom Scott with The California Dreamers) 

In 1967, Tom Scott and the California Dreamers also borrowed and remade Jefferson Airplane’s Today, but with an upbeat Jazz style to it. Only a small portion of the lyrics from the original are used. Scott’s played with the Blues Brothers, Robbie Williams, and Tina Turner, along with many others. The latter half of this version of the song has his saxophone in play, and I love how deep and crazy he goes in with it. I’ve never heard this before, so I’m really curious about his other work, which I’ll give a listen. From 1967’s The Honeysuckle Breeze album, here’s Today.

Lyrics:

I feel like pleasing you more than before
I know what I want to do but I don’t know what for

To be living for you is all I want to do
To be loving you it’ll all be there when my dreams come true

To be anymore than all I am would be a lie
I’m so full of love I could burst apart and start to cry
