In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Jon Dolan praises "Miracle Worker," the genre-smashing first single from Mick Jagger's new supergroup Superheavy, noting that it's "a summertime single built for every beach." Also, Monica Herrera is lukewarm on "Headlines," the first single from Drake's Take Care, which suffers from a slight hook and a beat that never takes off, and Evan Serpick pans the limp, Lex Luger-free new album from Southern rap titans Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
