"What's the problem with these rappers? They don't know how to play it cool," Usher says on the intro to Rick Ross' latest single. For Ross, playing it cool means having producer Rico Love slow the tempo, bringing in Usher for a sexy chorus, and laying on muy suave rhymes ("Rose petals on her bed, I walk in unannounced"). As always, high romance is inseparable from high finance: "She kissin' on me, biting on my bottom lip/In the Galleria all I get is 'Buy me this.'... 50 stacks in her bag so she know it's real."

    “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.”
