The Experience: A little girl caught in the crossfire... Carrie Underwood looks deep into the suffering that words can bring down on ourselves, and on the innocent people under our care...
The Experience: Oh I'm sorry for everything oh everything I've done. From the second that I was born it seems I had a loaded gun, and then I shot a hole through everything I love. I know I've messed up. It seems like everything I've done has gone wrong. But I want to change, and I believe that somehow good can triumph, and we can let this drift away...

The Experience: Paul McCartney's acoustic guitar blends well with Rihanna's soulful voice - as she completely changes her style for something new. She and Kanye lament dragging on with life. FourFive Seconds sings about just barely holding back both boredom and lashing out.
The Experience: And honestly I won't catch up on sleep tonight. I'll be looking in the London lights and missing you... Places are only as beautiful as the experiences you live there.
The Experience: Hit me one more time. One, two, three, just give me more. 'Cause with every strike I'll be stronger than before... Gotta die to stay alive... The key to suffering isn't learning to grin and bear it. It's knowing that the pain is your path to victory.
The Experience: What do snowboarders, skateboarders, race car drivers, runners, bobsledders,truck drivers, jump ropers, handball players, quarterbacks, and people who love parkour have in common? They all love a little bit of friction. So therefore a little fiction in your own life is not such a bad thing after all!
The Experience: Life is so much different when we approach it with a positive outlook. Maybe the only thing different between a good day and a bad one, or a happy life and a sad one for that matter, is our attitude?
The Experience: Want you to know how I miss ya. And now I got you right by my side, yeah, I got you right by my side... Charli XCX and Rita Ora produce a dance anthem that sings to love forevermore.

The Experience: Bouncing pop stanzas alternate with a first pleading then computerized chorus in Keep It Undercover. Zendaya plays with hiding her emotions and trying to be in control, while the lyrics show her interior struggle.
