In Baltimore, the carnal rapture is nigh In John Waters' world, there's nothing more normal than sexual depravity. An all-out turf war between "the horndogs" and "the neuters" leads a prissy mom (Tracey Ullman) to lock her massively mammaried daughter, Ursula Udders (Selma Blair), in her room. But can Mom buck the transformative effect of getting hit in the head by David Hasselhoff's dookie dropped from 30,000 feet? Witness Johnny Knoxville Frenching a squirrel and the immortal line "I'm Viagravated, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

    “Road to Nowhere”

    Talking Heads | 1985

    A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
