Video: The Simpsons Bring Pink Floyd to Life

December 17, 2007 3:33 PM ET

Fans of both The Simpsons and Pink Floyd, we have something for you: To promote tomorrow's release of The Simpsons Movie DVD, the Springfield collective hovered a giant inflatable "Spider-Pig" -- Homer Simpson's adopted pet from the film -- over London's Battersea Power Station, in a tribute to the album artwork for Pink Floyd's 1977 disc Animals. This isn't the first time that the Simpsons have channeled famous album covers, nor is it the first time they've made reference to the Animals star. Watch the video of Homer Simpson's pig taking over the air Roger Waters' pig once occupied above.

“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.”
