34. Avant "Read Your Mind" (2003)
Album: Private Room
"I stepped in the club in your hood / I slowly turned left, and there you stood" is a terrible way to make a first impression -- absolutely terrible -- but Avant redeems himself. He really does! He's a grower, not a shower, you know? Just give him a few minutes to warm himself up. Don't judge a book by the first two lines!
