It’s cute but one of her most forgettable IMO

It’s Like That Y’all is great though! A triumphant comeback which appealed to even her haters because of its undeniable bopness
Agreed. That and Obsessed are cute but forgettable.

This cover of Touch My Body is actually more memorable tbh ...

HotPotato is correct. I just left you off; Gaga is in the right position. No credit for you. :lol:

I'll update it when I get a moment.

Touch My Body - meh by MC's standards.
It's Like That - much, much better than meh. It was the perfect stage-setter for the monster that followed.
Don't Stop the Music - were my list based on merits rather than airplay, this would've been higher. It's one of my favourite songs ever!
Whenever, Wherever - one of Shakira's finest singles.
Poker Face - absolutely brilliant, deservedly the biggest global hit of 2009.
Because of You - her third best song! I think it deserved to be an even bigger hit than it was.

I was actually talking about It's Like That. Maybe I should phrase my words better to avoid confusion :lol:

Whenever Wherever, Poker Face and Because Of You are all great songs. I didnt vote for them just because I was actually kinda bored listening to them now. I used to listen to them a lot back then.

I love Kelly, but BOY is seriously overrated. There are album tracks off Breakaway better than it.

Because Of You is one of Kelly's best, if not her very best. Fantastic song.

Poker Face is one of the few Gaga songs I like.

Whenever, Wherever was such a monster hit here, I have sooo many memories connected to that song.

Not Me, Not I nice
One Day In Your Life - solid gold uplifting powerhouse pop
I Turn to You - the best track on Mel's first album with a great single mix, possibly her best song
Intuition - fabulous, nearly made my list. Easily Jewel's best album, a great sound for her, shame it didn't do well so she never did a pop follow up
Maneater - Nelly's best song, a stunning, slinky, gritty rebirth
Believe Again - stunning, a sonic cousin and precursor to the superior flawless album track The Guardian
Lost Without You - also very nearly made my list, she really could have burst into the 100 with one of us on the fencers throwing it a point! :lol:
Everytime - I think I enjoy this song's success more than the actual track. I find this is often picked out as a fave by non Britney fans.
Family Affair - great at the time, so over it now, overplayed like Milkshake and Get Ur Freak On
Doesn't Really Matter - a bit lazy and sloppy but somehow still cute. It's huge success was a wild surprise to me. I do particularly like the really really really my love for you part.
Touch My Body - superlightweight frothiness with a great video and an even more pleasing chart position. Possibly her most 'festive' non Christmas song. A perfect lead single for a subsequently mismanaged album campaign.
It's Like That - a swaggery baller of a track with lyrical gold. Them chickens is ash and I'm lotion. YAS.
Don't Stop The Music - BRING BACK POP RIHANNA!!! A welcome antidiote to the subpar Shut Up And Drive single.
Whenever, Wherever - easily her best track. Still a slinky bop.
Poker Face - strangely one of her older tracks that still sounds more timeless rather than of that period.
Because Of You - stunning and a beautiful contrast to the fab Since U Been Gone. Those two are easily my fave singles of hers.

The best of Toni happened in the 90s, but He Wasn't Man Enough is a bop, I had to represent the bish.

Case Of the Ex is a bop too. Not my favorite Mya song but it goes off.

Dirrty is pop perfection.
