Hans-Peter Lindstrøm's ecstatic synth disco occupies a stylin' cyborg middle ground between Daft Punk and Air; he's remixed LCD Soundsystem and transformed Bethany Cosentino into a bedroom-mirror dance diva on a reworking of Best Coast’s "Boyfriend." The Norwegian DJ's third solo LP conjures the Eighties Midwestern art funk of Prince and Was (Not Was) in a miasmatic mix of club grooves. On "Magik" and "Quiet Place to Live," barely intelligible lyrics are like neon signage: more color than meaning, but seductive enough to lure you in and keep you there.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
