The two Swedish women behind the wondrously bitchy dance-floor nail-bomb "I Love It" bring us another fabulous slab of synth-smeared, fist-pumping Euro-slop fun. Championing their vision of global dominance with the brightly lit chorus "They say, 'You're a freak,' when we're having fun/Say, 'You must be high,' when we're spreading love," Icona Pop let us know what Max Martin disco sleaze sounds like filtered through the drunk-ass lens of DIY radicals. It's the people's trash.

    “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.”
