    They're not over U2. "Beautiful Day" ranked at #40 on the list (which is higher than anything by Madonna for example) and which also seems about right to me because besides "Beautiful Day" they didn't really have any other major staple hit song that weighted acclaim, classic cult, timeless quality, success and impact in one same song during the 21st century (so far).

    Well my divas did fine. Beyonce is at #1 and with 3 entries on the list, she was pretty much the best performing female. Britney did pretty good with "Toxic" ranking at #14 in the overall list (one of the 10 best females) and Amy Winehouse also made the Top 20 with "Rehab".

    The only of my fave females that ranked quite low was Madonna but considering she had already slayed 80s and 90s and the 21st century meant her 3rd / 4th decades in the business it was more than amazing that she made the list.

      A "greatest songs" list that has Garbaj anywhere is automatically irrelevant

        It shouldn't be generalized in one song. Of course the list has a few patchy or questionable moments. But overall it was a really strong list with a lot of alternative, urban, underground and rock acts making the list. Only 31 out of 100 were female / divas entries, most of the list is composed by great songs with lots of diversity.

                    I think Vertigo could be argued as well, maybe Walk On and Elevation which have become live staples.

                    I personally love both U2 and Springsteen but it's become cliche that they automatically get five star reviews and are always near the top of the year end lists even when the album isn't generally well received (Working On A Dream is largely considered Springsteen's worst album yet got a ***** review and placed as the #2 album of 2009 on there, behind U2 of course lol)

                      Yeah I agree on "Vertigo" . . . . "Walk on" is also famous but definately lesser compared to "Beautiful day" and "Vertigo". "Elevation" is not a classic for the GP IMO. I honestly think "Beautiful Day" was their definitive song during this century and in fact one of their definitive career songs overall.

                      As for the albums reviews I agree. IMO U2 haven't really delivered since "How to dismantle an atomic bomb" in 2004. Everything that they have released ever since has been subpar.

                              Exactly by 1995-1997 they said Mariah Carey cannot sing and could never sing. A remark which was used by Kendrick Lamar in 2017.

                                            I'm quite sure Netherlands and Nordic countries have even bigger tax. If it's like in Austria, once the taxes get taken away, you pay no insurance or school or whatever and what tou get payed is what you really get.
                                            Yeah, I see the maximum income tax rate in the Netherlands is 52%. *Sigh* I suppose you have to look at the bigger picture, though, because the US has lower taxes, but its healthcare system is a mess. There are so many pros and cons to weigh, and the financial side is just a part of the full picture.

                                            • Me too. She’s had such a traumatic life so she usually stays indoors. But the weather has been so nice and hot, so she’s been going out this week.

                                              She’s been gone 24 hours, which may not seem long. But as I said, she usually spends 23 hours a day indoors so it’s very out of character
