I'll follow this. :)

"The Edge of Glory" for the win! Easily (and arguably) her best song to date, in my opinion. :D

Time to weed out a couple of songs that didn't make the top 25!

Image

30. Speechless
“The Fame Monster” – 2009 (Album Track)
Code: Select all
I'm such a freak when it comes to keeping things in order, and having 29 songs on this chart just doesn't do it for me so I had to add one last entry before starting the Top 25 countdown! - So I listened back to a couple of her album tracks and it didn't really take long for me to decide that 'Speechless' was the missing link! It's a good song, even though it never really got any airplay in my iTunes so here it comes at No. 30! Yay

PERSONAL TOP 100: N/A
(never entered my top 100)


Image

29. Boys Boys Boys
“The Fame” – 2008 (Album Track)
Code: Select all
Totally forgot about this one, but since 'Boys' never really got any heavy rotation from me, it's easy for me to forget about it. What did save it was, however, the 'Manhattan Clique' remix! That's the reason this even makes the list (even if it's as one of the songs that missed out)!

PERSONAL TOP 100: #89 (1wk)
(21 Jun, 2009)


Image

28. Dance In The Dark
“The Fame Monster” – 2010 (Single :: UK #89 | US Dance #9)
Code: Select all
This was a single? Wow, didn't know that! Anyway, this just misses out of the top 25 because even though I do like this song, it's never really grabbed me like a lot of her songs tend to do. 'Dance' is just really bland in my opinion, and doesn't sound like the pop monster that is Gaga. I can still listen to it, though.

PERSONAL TOP 100: #48 (4wks)
(15 Nov - 6 Dec, 2009)


Image

27. The Edge of Glory
“Born This Way” – 2011 (Single :: US #3 | UK #6)
Code: Select all
Unpopular opinion time! 'Edge' is one of the most annoying songs Gaga has ever released, and one of the most annoying songs of 2011! (my opinion, not a fact - unfortunately) - I've never gotten everybody's love for it, and the video is one of the most boring videos I've ever seen! Sorry to Tripolis who already predicted this would win! :(

PERSONAL TOP 100: #37 (5wks)
(8 May - 5 Jul, 2011)


Image

26. Summerboy
“The Fame” – 2008 (Album Track)
Code: Select all
Aww, here's the first entry that I really wanted to make the top 25, but it was extremely hard to choose between this song and No. 25! Summerboy reminds me of spring 2009, when I discovered it, and we listened to it a lot that spring! It's just so summer-y and happy it's hard not to like it!

PERSONAL TOP 100: #24 (11wks)
(1 Feb - 12 Apr, 2009)


Pics will be edited into this at a later time. :)

I love "Dance in the Dark" and "The Edge of Glory" (Tripolis is going to be sad). I should listen to "Sumemrboy" more.

Shocked to see The Edge Of Glory exit so soon. I agree the video isn't the best, but I really like the song. :D

:o "Dance In The Dark" and "The Edge Of Glory" are not int your Top25. I didn't know that you can be rude sometimes :D

Personally, I also adore "Summerboy". It's one of my favourites of "The Fame" :D It could have been a song by Gwen easily.

I love Dance In the Dark!! :( :(
The Edge of Glory is one of her weakest single. It'd be in the 20s for me too I think. Can't wait to see who manages to make it.

Thanks for the comments everybody! :D

@Haribo: Yes Tripolis is going to be sad :( but you can't please everyone, can you? :) You should definitely listen to Summerboy more!

@larces: I knew TEOG going so soon would be a shocker, but idk it's always just gotten on my nerves I guess :( .. I do like some of the remixes though!

@joel77m77: Yeah I know that isn't really that unpopular that the video isn't good, but I guess not a lot of people will agree with me on the song itself going so early :P

@Mainshow: Ow sorry I didn't mean to be rude, I guess I just forgot myself a little bit while ranting about 'Edge' :P Glad you love 'Summerboy' too! :D and yes I agree, it could definitely be a Gwen song when I think about it, though I never really thought about it before!

@abemr89655: OMG yay someone who agrees with me!! :D Yeah it's definitely very sub par compared to most of her other single choices! Sorry to take out 'Dance' though :(

"The Edge of Glory" and "Dance In The Dark" are definitely two shockers here, especially the latter! :o "Dance In The Dark" is one of Gaga's best songs ever and I thought it'd be a sure bet for your Top 10.

25. Teeth
“The Fame Monster” – 2009 (Album Track)

Code: Select all
Here's my first entry in the top 25, and what a song it is! I never really listened to The Fame Monster until around April 2010, which is when I finally discovered this gem of a song! 'Teeth' has this infectious beat that just makes you wanna move, even though the melody isn't all that special! 'Teeth' manages the highest placement of any 'Fame Monster' album track!

Most of the The Fame Monster out already :o. Here best release IMO and one of the best pop records of that year. "Teeth" was my favorite when I first heard it.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I can't at "The Edge of Glory" missing out on your top 25! I mean, yeah, I can definitely understand how you feel about the song... but... how can it miss out on your top 25?! It's definitely among Gaga's best-songs to date and arguably the best song released in 2011, and I would have personally given it a top 3 placing. Well, I can just hope it grows on you though as it's weird seeing a Gaga fan not liking this one. :lol:

"Speechless" is among my favourite Gaga ballads ever! I'm gutted (and, shocked) to see it miss out on your top 25 too! Just what does your top 25 consist of, that so many epic tracks already fail to chart? :lol: I loved her acoustic live renditions, some of which are so heartfelt and I can truly understand the lyrics when she is singing it.

And... "Dance In The Dark Too"?! I can't! Your countdown has been off to a controversial start already! This, along with the two tracks above, are sure-fire bets for my top 15 and I just CAN'T believe it doesn't even rank in your top 25. Should have been released as a single as it has so much commercial/hit potential and... well, I guess you just don't like the 'fan-favourites' as much as one would expect.

"Summerboy" and "Boys, Boys, Boys" are just okay, though the latter had been my jam for a few weeks a year or so ago.

"Teeth" is... great and is a creative track. I probably wouldn't rank it above TEOG or DITD, but it's definitely going to make my top 25, too. This is among Gaga's most underrated tracks. While not my fave track from The Fame Monster (that EP is perfect), it's still much better than some duds on "The Fame", and I'm glad you gave it the recognition it deserves. Some fans detest this a lot though, and I don't really know why... :lol:

Now that "The Edge of Glory" has (surprisingly) fallen already so low in your countdown, I hope that "Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)" or "Telephone" can win this now. :P

Hahah oh my! I'm sorry to break your heart like that Tripolis! :( Yeah I guess I'm not such a big fan of these fan favorites, but lets be clear that the five songs I included #30 - #26 were included for a reason, because I thought they still deserved some recognition even though they weren't in my top 25!

I did like DITD a bit back when it first came out, but I guess it just fell in the shadow of other tracks I was listening to back then! :/ If it had been released as a single then maybe it would've made it much higher on this list but in my opinion it's just a bit too forgettable! :(

Hope my controversial chart can improve with the next 24 entries though! :)

24. Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)
“The Fame” – 2008 (Single :: AU #15 | EU #40)

Code: Select all
Oh dear, Tripolis, I just keep disappointing you don't I? :( This is the point of the countdown where I still love every song on the countdown, though, so even though #24 sounds like a large number - it's still placed there with *love*! 'Eh Eh' places behind 23 other songs for a reason though, it's because although this managed to creep into my top 20 back in the spring of 2009, it only managed a short stay because I quickly grew rather bored of it. It bounced back into the top 40 for a week or two once I discovered the Pet Shop Boys remix, but that was about it. The video for this song is so cute though, - actually probably one of Gaga's most adorable videos (if not *the* most adorable).

oohh! i didn't realize it peaked at #7 in france - i just chose EU & AU cause (as far as i know) they're bigger markets and the song didn't chart in US or UK which is what I usually use
