The Boss may be an ironic nickname, considering Bruce Springsteen's current great recessionary subject matter, but this lead single from Wrecking Ball is an Obama anthem for a reason. Though as potentially easily misunderstood as "Born in the USA" -- thanks to that "wherever this flag's flown" and the titular chorus -- it's not calling for a jingoistic circling of wagons, but declaring that all Americans need to support each other, be their percentages 1, 99, 53 or 47. Other songs on the album go after "the fat cats on banker's hill," but this simple plea for unity and selflessness is perhaps its most revolutionary.
