49 "Video Girl"
  BY JONAS BROTHERS

An uncharacteristically nasty — and characteristically catchy — swipe at chicks-on-the-make from the titans of Radio Disney: "They're all the same, they all want money..../They live for fame, honey."

50 "Time the Conquerer"
  BY JACKSON BROWNE

A loping meditation on uncertainty and years gone by that recalls Browne's classic Seventies material. He's always sounded wise beyond his years; here, he catches up.

51 "Rule Breaker"
  BY ASHLEE SIMPSON

Mrs. Wentz's rebellion jam is all bratty 'tude, stabby guitar and 2008's most entertaining taunt: "You don't want no beef!"

52 "Last Call"
  BY LEE ANN WOMACK

An instant classic from one of country's most soulful singers. "You must be in a bar," sings a long-suffering lover, "'cause I'm always your last call."
