Nicki Minaj served up a quiet storm on the Late Show With David Letterman Thursday night, soaring through the ballad "Right Thru Me," the latest single from her Pink Friday LP (which comes out next week). Accompanied by a small band — with a very flashy drummer — and two lithe dancers, Minaj wore a blonde wig with bright pink tips. Dave gave her performance more than his usual praise: "You see what I'm sayin'?" he said at the end of the song.

“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.”
