Hit count: Kicking it live like it ain't no thang

Black Eyed Peas, "I Gotta Feeling": Where "Boom Boom Pow" was genius-dumb, this is just stupid-stupid. Hey Will, you wouldn't wreck one of your own productions with vocals and lyrics so repetitive that they get boring before the first verse, would you?

Keri Hilson ft. Kanye West & Ne-Yo, "Knock You Down": Enjoyable starpowered trifle most notable for providing most fodder for the "can Kanye actually rap?" debate. He may rhyme "OMG" with "woe is me", but he also rhymes "Michael Jackson" with "Joe Jackson". At some point in history that will be acceptable, but not this one.

Kids of 88, "My House": Yeah, '88 was pretty different in New Zealand. These guys don't quite have the groove, but they should manage a few hits on shamelessness alone.
