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?"

    “Hungry Like the Wolf”

    Duran Duran | 1982

    This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
