Stan Lee (1922-2018)

Stan Lee (1922-2018)

The most influential and beloved man in the history of comics has left us. Throughout his 95 years, he defined what a superhero can be, and created the juggernaut known as Marvel. While it leaves off right after 2008’s Iron Man, With Great Power… is a fitting tribute to his life.

While putting the finishing touches on his album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… last year, Dwight Yoakam learned the news of Prince’s death. He decided then and there to add another track in tribute to the artist, a twangy, bluegrass version of one of his most beloved tracks.

To kick off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, the official Star Wars YouTube channel released this beautiful tribute video which includes some rare, behind the scenes and interview footage of Carrie Fisher, along with some of her greatest moments playing Princess Leia.

Portishead: SOS

Portishead: SOS

British alternative band Portishead applies their trademark haunting sounds to Abba’s 1975 pop classic SOS in a cover version dedicated to slain British parliament member Jo Cox. We always thought the original’s upbeat sounds belied the song’s dark lyrics.

Choir! Choir! Choir!: Space Oddity

Choir! Choir! Choir!: Space Oddity

One of the more emotionally powerful David Bowie tributes we’ve heard, as Toronto’s open choir of more than 500 singers convened to perform a wonderful cover of Bowie’s 1969 classic. Their rendition of The Man Who Sold the World is excellent as well.

Rick Wakeman: Life on Mars

Space Oddity Church Bells

Space Oddity Church Bells

Among the many David Bowie musical tributes that have popped up in recent days, here’s one we weren’t expecting – his seminal 1969 classic Space Oddity played on bells at the 634-year-old Dom Tower in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

ROYGBIV

ROYGBIV

Rishi Kaneria pays tribute to the use of color in Pixar’s animated films by identifying scenes which predominantly align with the colors of the spectrum, then playing them in order of hue. They seem to like green a bit more than other colors.

NBA: Welcome Back Kobe

NBA: Welcome Back Kobe

NBA welcomes its aging superstar back to the fold, the future hall of famer and five-time champ Kobe Bryant, who just recovered from a career-threatening injury. The tribute is worth watching even if you’re not a fan of the Black Mamba.
