It's not news when you got into bed! rails Duff against the Paris Hiltons of the world, over Gwen Stefani-style techno-lite beats. For her fourth record, the nineteen-year-old Duff set out to make an adult dance-pop record, with surprisingly successful results. "You're not the person that I once knew," she sings on "Stranger," presumably speaking to her ex, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte. "Did I ever do anything that cruel to you?" The best dig is on "Danger," where she ridicules the advances of an older man with the following put-down: "Were you born in '74?"

    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.
