~Z.T.~ Nothing big at stake here. Just the song I have winning it all against the song Andy has winning it all. Will it be the song you can’t stop dancing to (“Shake It”) or the song you can’t stop singing along to (“So What?”)

~Z.T.~ Let’s start with the na na na na’s. The driving force of “So What.” The “playground teasing” hook that you hate to love. It could win the contest on that hook alone, but the chorus is what made this happen:

“As we got to our seats, lead singer Chris Carrabba invited the Cab and the Plain White T’s back to the stage. He asked the crowd if they ever have a song get stuck in their heads and just can’t get it out. Then the super group launched into Pink’s “So What.” Thousands of screaming tweens sang along to every word. This song is so catchy, it took three bands playing together to exorcise it from their collective heads.” ~A.S.~

Sorry to have to cite you Andy, but it is the most sincere form of flattery. When three bands covered “Crazy” at Lolla two summers ago, it became clear it was the song of 2006. That’s how I knew “So What” deserved it this year. In two years, “Shake It” won’t even be remembered in the top 5 songs featuring the word “shake.” Na na na na na na will live on.

-A.S. Last night at the Lil Wayne and T Pain concert, they were talking about who was the best featured artist. As they battled it out, Lil Wayne said he didn’t even have to rap his verse because he knew he was that good. I don’t have to write anything about “Shake It.” The song is just that f-ing catchy. Watch the video, the song will speak for itself.
