"Trent Reznor wants to be friends on Facebook" — the phrase does not roll off the tongue. But with help from producer Atticus Ross, Reznor has made a solid soundtrack to David Fincher's movie by doing what he's always done: creating grand industrial rock, including a stormy, synth-powered version of Edvard Grieg's orchestral "In the Hall of the Mountain King." It's creepy mood music for the brave new world, where all "friends" are virtual.

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
