:lol: at your nopes!

Your #1 is such a cute bop. I just played "Lush Life" after not hearing it for months and I feel the same way about it now as I did in October. It's fine, but forgettable.

Great to see "Out of the Woods" here. It's the best song on your chart, and Taylor's best single this era by a huge margin. "Hymn for the Weekend" was my anthem a month ago. 8-)

1. Gwen Stefani - Make Me Like You
2. Coldplay - Hymn For The Weekend
3. Taylor Swift - Out Of The Woods
4. Zara Larsson - Lush Life
5. Justin Bieber - Love Yourself

These retro tracks slay! Estelle's and Robyn's tunes >>>

Estelle - American Boy
Robyn - Dancing On My Own

pretty good top 5, Zara and surprisingly the Biebz track are my favorites. Old grandma witch Gwen's song is growing on me after seeing the video, still feel like BDL and UTLY are better though.

Your nope top 5 is pretty much on point, although i'd say every single thing about Buzzfeed is f-ing annoying, not only the quizzes. Rhenna chose one of the worst songs from ANTI as single smh.

The Dev and Estelle tracks are both timeless classics, love them, Robyn's is good, too. Don't know the 2nd song lemme check it.
Shame on me for changing...no, shame on you for staying the same

Hi Toni_pest :D

Well if you don't update this chart, it would make an amazing one hit wonder! :P

1. Gwen Stefani - Make Me Like You
2. Coldplay - Hymn For The Weekend
3. Taylor Swift - Out Of The Woods
4. Zara Larsson - Lush Life
5. Justin Bieber - Love Yourself

Love all your top 5 songs. Make me like you is looking set for a high new entry in my own top 20 tomorrow. I think the idea of making a live music video is so inspired and i'm surprised nobody has thought of doing this sooner. Gwen pulled it off with flying colours, even i was a bit stumped by the stunt double at first thinking we were seeing the back of Gwen until i watched the making of video on Youtube and it all made sense. :lol:

The other 4 songs have all been top 10 in my chart, love seeing Hymn for the weekend as your #2, such a brilliant song.

As for your NOPES list :lol:

1. Rihanna - Work
2. Beyonce - Formation
3. Justin Bieber's moustache
4. Buzzfeed quizes
5. Kanye West's rants

Can't really argue with any of these! :P Well, i don't really go on Buzzfeed that much so i'm unsure whats so bad about their quizzes but everything else is so true.

Gosh at your retro bops, they take me back. :lol:

Loved American boy at the time. I don't think i really appreciated just how wonderful Dancing on my own actually is but i adored With every heartbeat when that was in the charts. Amy Winehouse remains a legend and i'm glad we all got to hear her music, Back to black is one of my favourite albums of all time.

American Boy is a jam, as is Love Is A Losing Game. Agreed in all your Nopes (although I do love a buzz feed quiz :oops: ) and Hymn for the Weekend is one of my favs atm.

Fantastic #1! 8-)

I think "We Can't Stop" is pretty fresh for a retro track, though. (It's a great song, though).

"They Don't Care About Us" is the highlight of the retro section. It's a well-written song, with a great message, solid vocals, and a hard-hitting production.

1. Taylor Swift - Out Of The Woods
2. Gwen Stefani - Make Me Like You
3. Chris Brown - Fine By Me
4. Coldplay - Hymn For The Weekend

Another great week! I love your Top4. I don't know the new Macklemore song, but i'll download their new album for sure so i'll hear it soon.
Glad to see Chris there. "Fine By Me" seems so underrated, i'm surprise he didn't get a hit with it.

Also love to see that awful video being #1 on the nopes list. Can't believe she just hit the #1 on the Hot 100 with that song...

Last but not least, also loving that retro bop by Miley <3
