I wanna be with the one I know

#29) Flo-Rida feat. Timbaland, "Elevator"
So is the elevator his penis? His heart? I have listened to this song so many times (Timbaland disco is the best autopilot ever) and I still haven't cracked this metaphor. I have a hard time believing he'll be able to pull off energetic pap-rap of such a high grade for more than one album, so enjoy it while it lasts or wait a few months for it to end.

#30) Miley Cyrus, "7 Things"
Synth string festooned punk pop - you'd think it was 2002 or something! Her inability to count only underscores the nutty enthusiasm (what is that accent? Hillbilly Avril?) that separates her from the Disney pack. Makes me wanna pull out The Young & The Hopeless and remember the dream.
