A Little More Personal (Raw)

As the title suggests, Lindsay Lohan makes a fatal mistake on her second album: She tries to, like, express herself. The album de-emphasizes the (very) guilty pop pleasures of her 2004 debut in favor of leaden I-hate-you-Daddy laments such as "Confessions of a Broken Heart" and "My Innocence." Lohan has a much bigger — though less distinctive — voice than her sometime-pal Ashlee Simpson, but she sounds like a high school talent-show winner on the album's two classic-rock covers: a sprightly take on "I Want You to Want Me" and a karaoke-faithful version of "Edge of Seventeen."

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
