As it turns out, Britney Spears also likes it rough. In this new version of Rihanna's hit "S&M," Britney drops an all-new verse in which she sings, "Tough, I don’t scream mercy / It’s your turn to hurt me” and “If I’m bad, tie me down / Shut me up, gag and bound me.”

Britney and Rihanna trade off lines in the second half of the song, but the music is otherwise identical to the version from Rihanna's album LOUD. It's a thrill to hear these two pop icons together on a track – it's kinda like when superheroes team up.

“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.”
