James McCartney has a sister who's pretty well known in New York City: she's designer Stella McCartney. There's more talent in the family as well, or so we hear. "New York Times," a rocking pop song from McCartney's recent release, The Complete EP Collection, was written on a trip to the Big Apple with his father, a certain Sir Paul. "My dad said let's write a song about our trip to NYC," says the singer. "Instantaneously I came up with the main riff as he was just inches away from me." Apparently it rubs off.

“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.”
