"Wait!...did I just rock out with Bon Jovi tonight???" Rihanna tweeted after joining the band for "Livin' On A Prayer" at a pre-European Music Awards concert in Madrid Saturday night. "WTFFFF!!!!!!!" The surprise duet was the highlight of the intimate gig, which also featured "Wanted Dead or Alive" and Bon Jovi's new single "What Do You Got?" Sadly, Rihanna didn't convince the group to tackle "Rude Boy" or "Shut Up And Drive."

“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.
