79. David Guetta (feat. Taio Cruz and Ludacris)
“Little Bad Girl”
Though 2011 was a time of strife and division, we’ve got no plans to abandon the communal perversity of the brittle club banger. Guetta, 44, is something of an elder by his culture’s standards—hence, he’s witnessed many progressions (stagnations) in electro-dance music, though “Little Bad Girl” is founded on a Ke$ha-level riff. But the catch is Ludacris, whose entire verse—the best thing he’s done in years—is some kind of ridiculous genius. (His “dollars” line is followed by “ching-ching-ching-ching-ching-ching”... oh right, dollars!) We aren’t getting rid of dumb craziness anytime soon. Why not enjoy the dumbest and craziest?
