97. Shakira: Whenever, Wherever

Found on: Laundry Service (2001)
Picked by: KT

She may be a she-wolf with hips that don't lie, but Whenever, Wherever was Shakira's breakthrough song. Her very distinctive singing voice and unique pronunciation (she's a native Colombian) separated her immediately from the early-2000s cavalcade of blonde pop singers. The pan flute is a nice touch, too.
