Late-Night TV Music (Late Edition) | June 5, 2019

Sheryl Crow and friends, Bryce Vine, Lewis Capaldi and Metallica play to win.

249

I slept in today for the first time in ages. Felt good. And since I’ll be up all night reviewing 16 trillion albums, it will all even out in the end. Speaking of things to come, let’s start off today with the newest talk-show clip — and the best of the lot: Sheryl Crow performing her country-pop single Live Wire on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with the all-star backing of Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples. It really doesn’t get any better than that. Though even I have to admit that rapper Bryce Vine’s breezy incarnation of La La Land on Jimmy Kimmel Live was pretty enjoyable. Meanwhile, for those who want to keep up to date on their British pop balladeers, Lewis Capaldi made his U.S. TV debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, crooning Someone You Loved from his excellently titled but musically underwhelming (IMHO, anyway) debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. And finally, even though it wasn’t on a late-night show, I included the clip of Metallica guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett playing The Star Spangled Banner from Game 3 of the NBA finals just for shiggles. And now, on with the day. See you on the other side.
