Trespassing (Pharrell Wiliams, Adam Lambert).
Adam's album kicks off like a drill-team version of Queen's Another One Bites the Dust. It also establishes a recurring outsider theme, as Adam swaggers undaunted past a "No Trespassing" sign, singing "Life's my life and liberty, and I'll shine when I want to shine." Here, and throughout the album, Adam embraces his "other-than" status. For an artist (and an audience) that prides itself on pushing boundaries, this song's an audacious opening volley.
