Scotty McCreery

See You Tonight

The 2011 debut from American Idol champ Scotty McCreery was a bumpy pickup-truck ride through generic country tropes, but two years later, the baritone has cranked out brighter tunes about a topic more befitting a 19-year-old star: getting some. The title track — one of five co-written by McCreery — describes a cheery booty call, and on "Blue Jean Baby," he can't peel his eyes off a girl in a pair of Levi's "showin' off a little skin." But amid the tailgates and stolen kisses, McCreery drops "Something More," a midtempo tear-jerker that'll strike a chord on either side of the Mason-Dixon.

    “Party Rock Anthem”

    LMFAO | 2011

    This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
