Did you know Tori Amos received a citation from the Mayor of Baltimore for a song about the 1980 Orioles? Or, that before Tupac Shakur was "West Coast," he was "East Coast" and a student at the Baltimore School of the Arts? Baltimore has been home to a surprising number of musicians in a variety of genres. Some of Baltimore's rockers are tied here by chance -- their parents happened to live in Charm City during their childhood: Frank Zappa, Talking Heads' David Byrne and The Cars' Ric Ocasek.

Anyone who names their band Dogs Die in Hot Cars obviously has a screw loose. Fortunately, the members of this Scottish quintet are crazy in all the right ways. On the band's new album, Please Describe Yourself, singer/guitarist Craig Macintosh yelps about famous actresses, primary-school history lessons and small-town life in a voice that resembles David Byrne on a European holiday, while the group pumps out sublimely geeky new-wave nostalgia. The bouncy ska-pop single "I Love You 'Cause I Have To" could have been a hit for Madness in 1983, "Celebrity Sanctum" is vintage Big Country, and everything else (save the overblown power ballad "Somewhat Off the Way")

Through the years a few pop, rock and jazz musicians have crossed the bridge that separates their art from the classics.A few years back, for instance, Linda Ronstadt sang Mimi in Puccini's "La Boheme" at New York's Public Theatre. David Bowie recorded the narration for Britten's "Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra."This summer, an orchestral work by David Byrne of Talking Heads was performed by the New York City-based Orchestra of St. Luke's. And ex-Beatle Paul McCartney composed a 97-minute oratorio that premiered in England last month.

About halfway into "Between the Teeth," a 70-minute concert film of David Byrne and his nine-piece band shot in October 1992, the camera pulls back into the crowd, bright white light suffuses the stage, the band dips into Mr. Byrne's "Hanging Upside Down," and for what seems like the first time in the film, actual color -- in this case the brilliant red and blue of Bobby Allende's conga drums -- leaps out from the screen."
