-A.S. Thanks to all of you who made round one of our Catchiest Songs of 2008 bracket a success. Things get much more exciting around here when it’s not just five of our friends and Zack and I participating. The first match up of the second round brings Estelle f. Kanye West, “American Boy” up against T.I.’s “Whatever You Like.” Zack and I each have one of these songs in the finals, so it figures to be one of the biggest match ups of the competition. Which one will you send to the final four?

~Z.T.~ If you read this blog with any regularity, you know I’m a big Kanye-basher. But, like reading an old love-letter from an ex long after you’ve broken up, this song makes me remember why I used to love Kan. “So, to hell with all that rubbish.” When guesting on Estelle’s song, he forgets his self-promotion long enough to drop quick, punchy verses that work damn well over Estelle’s crooning. With her chorus of “La la la’s,” the hard hitting one-two-three beat and the ever-changing list of American cities she wants to visit, this song is a perfect collage of 2008 pop music. Wouldn’t you want to be her American Boy? American Boy.

-A.S. T.I. performed on SNL with cash stuffed into his pants pockets, that’s how money he is. Fueled by his anger towards the media coverage of his legal troubles, T.I. put out one of the best albums of the year. No song was better, or catchier than “Whatever You Like.” Everything about this song screams catchy. A chorus that is repeated often, easy to remember lyrics and even his flow is catchy. T.I. wants you to know you can have “Whatever You Like,” but what I would really like is for you to vote for this song.
