  • Top Female-Led Singles Countdown - 2010s - COMPLETED

    Welcome to the 2010s Female-Led Singles Countdown

    We move to the third in our series of female-led singles by decade, and it's the current one! But it's not current for long. In just two weeks, the 2010s are over. This is the music that will be freshest in our memory. As the decade begin, singles sales were exploding on iTunes and our pop girls were killing the charts. As streaming took over mid-decade, that good fortune faded. But women still brought us a lot of great songs. Time to relive the past decade one more time.



    ========================================================================================
    ======================================


    Here are the specifics as copied from the last countdown:

    Eligibility:

    * The song must have been released between the dates of 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2019. That means that songs released in 2009, but not peaking on the charts until 2010 are ineligible. (You should have included it in the 2000-2009 countdown!)

    * The song must have been released as an official single. That means promotional singles are not allowed, nor are singles that charted as an album track. For example, all of Ariana Grande's singles from thank u, next charted on the Billboard Hot 100, but only three were officially released as singles.

    * The single must have a female lead. Songs in which only a male is in the lead are ineligible. So, for example, "Monster" is not eligible for Nicki Minaj since she is featured while Kanye West is lead. Songs that feature males as co-leads, such as Drake and Lil Wayne on Nicki Minaj's "Truffle Butter" are eligible.

    *Groups are eligible. Bands that feature a female lead singer (or singers) are eligible (for example, Paramore).

    * Instrumental submissions by women are allowed, provided they received an official single release.
    ---
    Submission:

    * When you are ready to submit, you can go ahead and do so at any time You can revise your list at any time, but I will accept changes to your submission no later than 5PM Mountain time on January 31 (I believe that's midnight UK time)

    Using the below format
    * PM me a list of
    50 POINTS - ARTIST - SONG TITLE(top)
    ---
    01 POINTS - ARTIST - SONG TITLE(bottom)

    *Please be mindful of the above format. The last countdown I conducted had people listing their favorite song as 01, which made things very confusing. Also, please ensure it is Artist, THEN song title, and separate them with a hyphen.

    * You must submit a minimum of 20 songs. (But I think you can come up with 50. )

    * * No more than three songs, including features, may be by the same artist on an individual submission.

        For some reason, I thought this was a #1s countdown. So I don’t think Xmas GOAT is eligible here despite my enthusiasm earlier, right? (tho #B is ofc).

          "Female-led" means "Titanium" is ineligible, right?

            There should be exceptions for those type of cases tbh, but it’s not my call.

                This is going to be contentious point in my collaborations countdown as well, but I mean IIRC didn't we have 'When Love Takes Over' charting in the 2000's CD?

                I've been kinda creating a shortlist in mind over the last few months, time to get it going and sorting it out!

                I wanna doublecheck Telephone as well, so it came out on the album 2009, Wiki says released as single Jan 26 2010 and then we had the video in March. meaning it's eligible based on the single release date right.

                  Singles like Masterpiece by Madonna which were released as singles in specific countries count?? Or Hold Tight.
                  Blue hydrangea, cold cash divine. Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine.
                  Red racing cars, sunset and vine. And we were young and pretty.

                    As much as it pains me to say it, Titanium would not be eligible because Sia is listed as featured. I think it's easiest to make this a cut-and-dry rule than try this on a case by case basis.

                    Yes, Telephone is eligible!

                    Yes, it's eligible! I'm not discriminating based on country so if Masterpiece was released as a single in one country and not another, that doesn't disqualify it.

                            It is a bit weird though. I mean, Sia is the lead singer. You don't hear anyone else.

                              That would have been the only Sia song on my c/d.

                                  (And it’s looking like mod at this point too )

                                    I should probably start promoting this soon.
                                    Maybe once it's 2020.

                                    I have gotten two lists already - heppolo and taverner - I haven't looked at them yet since I haven't done my list either.

                                    Feel free to post any suggestions you have. No more than ten per day as we've done in previous threads.

                                            This is actually a lot harder than I thought. Just checked out my Last.FM most played songs and many of them are non-singles urgh.

                                              An issue I'm having is the collaborations taking up slots for certain artists depending on the combinations you pick. It's coming together though. I might do a few suggestions later.

                                                [QUOTE=abi;7216970]Gonna send my list today. Also [MENTION=49569]cheapthrills[/MENTION] I think you can add the voting template to the first post so everybody else can just copy + paste.

                                                Thanks for the template! I added it to the OP. I know the rule about the type of single is more complicated than it was for the other two decade countdowns I ran, thanks to streaming. The reason that rule was put in place was to narrow the scope of eligible songs.

                                                Glad you will be sending a list Features seem to creep us as a challenge with each decade. It wasn't so much an issue for me for the 90s countdown.

                                                  Going to make a list now. Very happy instrumental tracks by female artists are allowed, because you probably know why

                                                  This will be sooo tough and I'll probably end up as the only voter for many songs on my list

                                                  edit: I've got a question. Is someone like Conchita Wurst allowed for this? [MENTION=49569]cheapthrills[/MENTION]
