It's war! and the enemy trying to bring down public education in America is within. That's the premise of Waiting for "Superman," an electrifying call to action from Davis Guggenheim, whose An Inconvenient Truth won an Oscar. Guggenheim writes his devastating story on the faces of children in New York, L.A. and D.C. whose lives are being ambushed by bureaucracies. This movie isn't just a necessity (listen up, do-nothing politicians) — it might change your future.

    “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.
