Last year, Pitbull became a dance-pop monarch with the chart-topping "Give Me Everything," and his seventh LP tries to keep that crossover elasticity rolling: "I ain't greedy, shar­in' is carin'/Especially when it's with Sharon and Karen," he raps lustily, building a cultural bridge on "Party Ain't Over." Mr. Worldwide interpolates "Take On Me," a-ha's 1985 New Wave banger, on "Feel This Moment," and his productions simulate the opulence of a Miami nightclub, with stomping eurozone beats that could just as easily be on an LMFAO record. Vocally, he's less an MC than a greeter or a party promoter – and every­one on the planet is on his guest list.

    “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.”
