What? No "Hanky Panky"? Is this some kind of a joke? Given how obsessive her fans are, it's a thankless task for Madonna toassemble a two-CD hit collection. But from the opening one-two of "HungUp" and "Music," two of her best ever, Celebration kicks off with purebliss and never lets up. It's a dizzying, nonchronological spin through the Madonna years, years it makes you feel lucky to be living through.Her hitmaking genius is unmatched and — with the new Eurocheeseblast "Celebration" and the Lil Wayne duet "Revolver" — undiminished. It's almost enough to make you forget that they left off"Angel," which is just plain crazypants.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
