#19) Chris Brown, "With You"
It's going to be a sad day when Chris Brown's voice doesn't exude innocence - try to imagine a thirtysomething climaxing a campfire ballad with "baby, you're the best part of my day!" A love letter that rolls out every cliche imaginable and gets away with it, because it sounds like his first.
#20) Metro Station, "Shake It"
The elder siblings of two Hannah Montana stars conflate soaring flocks of seagulls with knicker-dropping knackness for a space age fuck song worthy of the young, sensitive and sexually active. Destined for hipster rediscovery on a flashback comp, assuming they still have those things fifteen years from now.
