Might as well bring things up to speed.
#90 - When I Saw You - Mariah Carey
Yet another gorgeous r’n’b flavoured ballad from the queen of hearts.
The melody in the song is similar to Mariah’s other single Thank god i found you
#89 - Team - Iggy
Gosh what a contrast to Mariah.
This got to #5 in my chart but i got over the song quite quickly so it was a short lived hit.
#88 - One Step At A Time - Jordin Sparks
Ahh yes i remember this. Jordin had an excellent run of singles in the UK and this was a great track.
#87 - Love - Kylie Minogue
Bringing things right up to date, Golden
is still quite comfortably my favourite album of the year so far. One of those rare albums where i love every song on the album, but sadly Love
ended up being one of those songs i didn’t really go back to for multiple plays. I just found myself preferring many of the other album tracks more. That said, Love
is undoubtably a real joy. <3
#86 - Maneater - Nelly Furtado
Total anthem and one of the best UK #1s of the 00s (as per my own countdown last year where Nelly Furtado finished 9th
). The whole Loose
was incredible with a string of hit singles where i loved every single track.
#85 - Together Again - Janet Jackson
From one anthem to another. <3 As i’ve previously posted in Akini’s chart thread, Together again
is hands down my all time favourite Janet single. It’s the perfect way of celebrating the life of someone you’ve known and through the heartbreak of losing someone close, crafting a perfect pop song that has an uplifting message.
#82 - Believe Again - Delta Goodrem
This song is truly mesmerising. Everything about Believe again
is epic and sensational. I loved this so much at the time and i still think the edited version used in the music video doesn’t do the song much justice I love the original and how it just continues building right up to its climax. Delta at her ultimate best here. <3
#81 - Feels - Calvin, Pharrell, Katy, Sean
Calvin Harris has been one of the most successful artists in my chart since 2013. Feels
is currently his most successful single in my own chart. This song was the sound of summer 2017 for me and i still think Pharrell, Katy and Big Sean were the perfect featured artists on the song. I especially loved those parrots in the music video.
#79 - Bloom - Troye Sivan
Fabulous darling. <3 I’ve been a fan of Troye’s since Happy little pill
in 2014. I never thought i’d see Troye embracing his sexuality quite like he has done this year, but i’ve been fascinated in seeing Troye becoming ever more confident and comfortable expressing himself the way he wants to. It’s such a beautiful thing to see.
#78 - Oops!... I Did It Again - Britney Spears
ICONIC <3 Another of my personal favourite #1 singles from the 00s. I quickly became a big Britney fan in 1999 when she started out, and throughout the 00s i was always curious to hear new music. I do think Britney became a bit inconsistent as time went on, but the songs i enjoy, i really enjoy.
