Jennifer Lopez's music career evokes Don Corleone's question in The Godfather: How did things ever get so far? How did such a glam movie star turn into such a rinky-dink pop singer? At least on her last album, J. Lo gave us some celebrity dish with "Dear Ben." But unfortunately, Rebirth doesn't include a "Dear That New Guy," or even a "Fine, Ben, Go Throw Your Life Away on That Alias Bitch." "Cherry Pie" is not a Warrant cover, but it's the only fun track on Rebirth — if only because Lopez's handlers probably don't allow her near the pastry tray.

    “Vicious”

    Lou Reed | 1972

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
