("tweet" descriptions - 140 characters or less)

20. The Black Keys - "Lonely Boy"
Following up on the success of Brothers, the Keys come out swinging with this rockin lead-off single. And pick up right where they left off

19. Gym Class Heroes featuring Adam Levine - "Stereo Hearts"
Levine helped elevate this track to major pop success, but McCoy employed some of his best wordplay in years to make GCH new again

18. Beastie Boys - "Make Some Noise"
Maybe the saying should be that old dogs can teach old tricks? The Boys bring the party in a hip-hop track that could be strong in 91 or 11

17. Atlas Genius - "Trojans"
A hit song before even recording an album? It worked for these Aussies. The smooth vibe leaves anticipation for a proper future release

16. Grouplove - "Colours"
A hippieish jam track that you don't realize you are in love with until you picture yourself in an open field humming along

Now that we're in the middle of the list, what did you think of these selections? Agree, disagree? Wondering if your favorite is going to make it? Let me know in the comments.

Be sure to look out for numbers 15 - 4 tomorrow
