Mr. Oizo is a man of many sounds – and for his new track "Solid," the French DJ-producer steps into the dark with Marilyn Manson. Mr. Oizo serves up frantic, brooding synths and piles them over Manson's creepy, spliced refrain. "You look like shit when you dance," Manson sings with disjointed glee over Oizo's needling arpeggios.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
