Yay, my guess was right, Take That the #1, i knew you're such a huge fan of Take That!
I wouldn't rank Butterfly that high but it's one of her best of course. Anyway, i wish you used different pic for Mariah, it's so horrible, the outfit, the angle, etc :lol:

#34 Madonna - Like a Prayer (1989)
#33 Take That - The Garden (2009)
#25. Janet Jackson - Rhythm Nation (1989)
#20 Elton John - Circle of Life (1994)
#16 Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal (1988)
#14 Madonna - Live to Tell (1986)
#12 The Killers - Read my Mind (2007)
I guess it is really hard to choose down to 40 songs and some choices seem weird to me, for example I like When We Were Young much more. But that's great.
#6 Michael Jackson - Will you be There (1993)
#4 Nelly Furtado - Say it Right (2006)
#3 Bruce Springsteen - Streets of Philadelphia (1994)

I've never heard your #1 nor your #3, but "Butterfly" is an epic track indeed. :)

I'm so happy to see Say It Right being your #4. It is one of my ultimate favorites. It would be in my top 3 if I make my own list of my all-time favorites. From the top 3, Butterfly is my favorite.

Whoa the chart turned out to be unpredictable!

I wanted to check out your #1 but couldn't find the magical concert version that you mentioned.

I know that Bruce song, I rarely listen to it because it is quite heart breaking... a great late night song! 8-)

the revised list will be much more diverse.

Since 2011 I've discovered many more (classic) artists. Bowie will have a shoe in (or 2), Prince will definately increase, The Clash, The Smiths will debut, M83 will see a massive influx, Springsteen, Turner, Streisand, Motown, Sinatra, Elvis, Paul SIMON (solo and with Art). BJORK will be back... and Beyoncé will show up too.

I'm so excited.

In the 2016 edition of my Favourite Songs of All Times I try to incorporate both classic hits and more current ones which I find to be incredible.

#100 - 1999 - NO SCRUBS - TLC
Image
I discovered the song via its music video in the year of its release. I then bought FanMail. I bought the album in 2004.
#99 - 1988 - FATHER FIGURE - GEORGE MICHAEL
Image
I discovered the song via Glee. It was the show's last season (season 6). It stayed with me ever since. A tremendously haunting written track with a brilliant melody and outstanding vocal production.

#98 - 1981 - Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie
Image
Under Pressure is one of my anthems not only because I constantly feel under pressure, but also because it has such a legendary guitar riff. It's one of the most recognizable songs in music history.
#97 - 2000 - Yours Forever - John Mellencamp
Image
This melodic and borderline depressing wrist-slitting anthem came to me on the soundtrack of a George Clooney movie from way back when he tried to become more than just that doc from ER. Melodically outstanding and lyrically haunting, this evergreen isn't considered classic Mellencamp by his stans. But the soul wants what it wants. This song is perfect for everybody who likes to watch themselves ugly-crying in front of a mirror.
#96 - 1970 - Lay Down (Candles in the Rain) - Melanie
Image
Before there was Madonna, before there was Cher, there was Melanie. Nobody needs to know her last name because she left her footprints on probably everyone who ever had a song in the 1960's and 1970's. As America's original one-name-artist, she slayed careers from planet Earth to Mars. This 1970's classic is one of the greatest post-60's songs that everyone should have in their "Friends, look at me, I'm super awesome"- Hipster playlists. If you don't know the song, you're probably not that into great music.
#95 - 1983 - Love is a Battlefield - Pat Benatar
Image
There is literally no gay person in the world who doesn't walk in heels and plays cross-dressing to another evergreen than this 1983 classic. Pat Benatar is probably better and more than this one song. But its impact is stronger than the public's will to allow another classic to come from her creative mind.
#94 - 1972 - If There Is Something - Roxy Music
Image
"Shake your head girl, with your ponytail, takes me right back, when you were young" is the most brilliantly delivered line in recorded music. As a true original evergreen and yet again one of the best written musical pieces in history, it is mandatory to list this alltime classic in any credible "greatest" lists. If you know this one song and nothing else by anyone, then you still have a great taste in music.
#93 - 1975 - Someone saved my Life Tonight - Elton John
Image
There he goes, the first entry by Elton John is a brilliantly conducted classic which I discovered in what I consider the best movie trailer in cinematic history: Moonlight Mile. The song is so moving that it makes you dream on and on and on while listening.
#92 - 1985 - Maybe God is tryin' to tell you somethin' - Tata Vega
Image
This glorified masterpiece from the best motion picture in history, The Colour Purple, is as uplifting as it is sad. This Quincy Jones crafted evergreen should be heralded all around the world for what human artistry can achieve. Even God cried when he heart that kind of vocal slayage.
#91 - 2013 - You will see Me - Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip [Bulleted]
Image
Artsy and pretentious! That's what this is, really. But how can anyone deny this song entry from any alltime-lists? It's certainly, officially and by fact the best Hip Hop delivery by a white man. The fact that he is British simply adds to his shock value. The music video for this left me in distress. Not only is it one of the most visually challenging pieces of art, it also had me browing the internet relentlessly to find out more about him, the world and myself.
