Three personal favorites stick out for me:

1) In Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain", the part that starts "Sometimes I wake up by the door..." somehow, she rhymes "door", "for you" (twice) and "over" and totally makes it work. I love that stanza.

2) In "Good Time" by Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City, where Carly gives this "whooo!" right before the chorus. I love that bit.

3) This one is probably a bit obscure, but "Call Me When You're Sober" by Evanescence. There's a part, at the 2:50 mark, which starts "How could I..." the second time the lead singer sings the words "How could I" her voice does this "fluttering" thing on the "I" that really grabs my ears. I could play the whole song just to listen to that bit.
