Rich Boy struck gold with producer Polow Da Don on 2006's "Throw Some D's." The pair hasn't been able to repeat the feat on any of their three subsequent singles together, including 2007's cheery love jam "Good Things" and 2009's art-damaged Weezy-rip "Drop." "She Luvs Me (She Luvs Mi Knot)" switches his style up yet again for Polow's excellent approximation of a dancehall-infused Timbaland beat — and Rich Boy's unfortunate approximation of Timbaland's half-baked rapping. And a "fuck your couch" reference in 2010 is just inexcusable.

    “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.”
