Lady Gaga “Til It Happens to You” Live at the Oscars Video feat. Kevin Kantor!!!!

I didn’t watch The Oscars last night, but I did see Lady Gaga’s powerful performance of “Til It Happens to You” from the campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground. And I was so happy to see poet Kevin Kantor among the survivors that took the Oscar stage with Lady Gaga. Kevin’s own spoken word poem about sexual assault, “People You May Know,” was included on our Muruch.com for RAINN benefit album and he was a great support during our fundraising campaign. Kevin Kantor is an incredibly talented poet (and a very nice, humble man) and his should be a household name.

The Morning Pages – Telephone (mp3)*

The Morning Pages give this Lady Gaga song an Americana makeover. Much, much better than the original. They should do all of her arrangements for her, I might actually like her albums then. This tune isn’t available on an album yet, but has a similar vibe to the band’s previous album Rising Rain (I posted another mp3 from it last month.

Fol Chen – In Ruins (mp3) *

Peppy pop song from Fol Chen’s upcoming sophomore album Part II: The New December. I posted an mp3 from her debut last year.
