Rich Boy struck gold with producer Polow Da Don on 2006's "Throw Some D's." The pair hasn't been able to repeat the feat on any of their three subsequent singles together, including 2007's cheery love jam "Good Things" and 2009's art-damaged Weezy-rip "Drop." "She Luvs Me (She Luvs Mi Knot)" switches his style up yet again for Polow's excellent approximation of a dancehall-infused Timbaland beat — and Rich Boy's unfortunate approximation of Timbaland's half-baked rapping. And a "fuck your couch" reference in 2010 is just inexcusable.

    “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."
