This schmaltzy R&B slow jam is a bonus cut from the too-soon deluxe reissue of Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds for a reason. Over third-rate Timbaland synth squiggles and strings, Timberlake comes to an important realization while watching the TV news: He loves to ball the ladies. While the track showcases his and Beyoncé's pipes (she doesn't come in until midway through), things take a weird turn when the two start chanting, "This one's for the lovers. . . . Let me hear you say, 'Yeah!'"

This story is from the November 15th, 2007 issue of Rolling Stone.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
