"Secret Love," a song that Stevie Nicks originally demoed in the late '70s, has been remade for her In Your Dreams, her first album in a decade. Whereas the original version of the tune — which has been bootlegged for years by fans — had a stark, simple arrangement, the new recording is considerably more slick, modern and rocking in its style.

“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.
