Fans hoping for another "My Love" should keep waiting: Justin Timberlake plays T.I.'s wingman on this very straightforward Timbaland-produced club cut, which is fueled by a sputtering bass line and T.I.'s freak-nasty come-ons: "Imagine me behind you, drillin'."
“Bird on a Wire”
Leonard Cohen | 1969
While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
