On this exuberant rap ode to beer goggles – or, in this case, Belvedere goggles - three of the world's biggest MCs load up on vodka and propose marriage to honeys in the V.I.P. room.  Jay-Z coos sweet nothings ("I walk down this aisle faithfully, cut that cake for me") over a pumping, brass-bolstered beat, while Andre 3000 waxes poetic ("Lets put a baby butterfly up in your lil' cocoon"). As for Jeezy, he dispenses with the flowery stuff and gets to the point: "I'll do anything to leave here tonight with you,"he barks. "I said I do, I do, I do, I do, I do."

    “American Girl”

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

    It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
