“Glad You Came”

The Wanted | 2011

The Wanted timed the release of this single with what they hoped was the perfect season to debut this light-hearted tune. "When we first heard 'Glad You Came' we just knew it had to be the first single from the new album," band member Tom Parker said. "We all felt it was a new, refreshing sound and a perfect song for the summer which really gets you in the mood for a party." The song was also featured in the third season of the TV show, "Glee."

“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.
