Which songs are you dying to hear — and which are played out?  Z104.3’s Jackson Blue weighs in with his handy Heat Meter.

Gettin’ hot: “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” Katy Perry
This week it became Katy’s fifth No. 1 song off Teenage Dream, setting a new record for most No. 1 songs from a single album. I credit Kenny G’s flute.

Warming up: “Moves Like Jagger (feat. Christina Aguilera),” Maroon 5
“American Idol” isn’t the only show creating pop hits. Doesn’t “X Factor” premiere soon? Maybe Simon Cowell will come out with a clubby dance track next.

Flameout: “California King Bed,” Rihanna
A love song about a size of bedding. I liked the song but it was destined to fail.
