Click to listen to Motion City Soundtrack's 'True Romance'

"True Romance," the first single from Motion City Soundtrack's fifth album, Go, starts off as a simple acoustic ditty but, within a few bars, the music shifts into the quintet's strong suit of perky, upbeat rock. "'True Romance' is a love song about two people who seemingly don't have much in common except their love for the time they share in the bedroom," says singer Justin Pierre. "In my experience, opposites do attract. And if you can get over the superficialities, you often find you have more in common than you initially thought. Perhaps you even find love."

Go will be in stores on June 12th, but you can preview "True Romance" here today.

“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.”
