Nice song, makes me impatient to wait for the new BSB album.
"Chances" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" were both solid/decent, so I, too, might check out their new LP when it's released.
Thank you! The song itself makes a pretty great impression too.
Yeah, his music is decent sometimes.
• That sextastic "She Loves Control" single art is a painful reminder of all the squandered potential
How did that era become SUCH a damn mess after two big hits?
The era was cursed after she threw "Crying in the Club" away like it was trash.

It was a pretty clear standout from spin #1 for me.
phoenix98 wrote:• "Party For One" struck me as somewhat underwhelming at first (by Carly's usual sky-high standards, anyway), but it's really stuck with me over the past month or so. I'm still boppin' along much more than I would've initially expected.
Yeah, I think it was released too close to the finalisation of this countdown for it to have much time to grow on me.
phoenix98 wrote:• I moved on from Golden Hour too quickly, but I remember "Rainbow" being among its better half. Definitely a lovely closer.
Aw, really? I thought that album was one of the best of the year!
phoenix98 wrote:• I owe your chart for alerting me to the release of "Headlights," and I'm still pretty hooked on it!
Glad we're doing our part to keep Leona lightly relevant more than a decade since her debut.
phoenix98 wrote:• Calum is SUCH a cutie! He was the opening act for a show I saw this summer, and he was PAINFULLY charming during his brief stint on stage. <3
Aw, cute that you got to see him live. Did he perform "No Matter What"? If not, you should definitely check out the music video
• Speaking of painfully, I'm clenching
my heart at the sight of "Stop Me From Falling" falling below the Top 100
Granted, I vaguely recall you being unenthused with it until the video dropped, so that might've just been too little too late. It'll probably be my No. 1.
You and this verb.
Also, lemme scream at you revealing your likely #1 so early.
Honestly, "Stop Me from Falling" ended up significantly higher than it would have been. Its old rating would have sent it back at least 80 places.
phoenix98 wrote:• Ditto for "Bloom" (minus the video stuff, since I'm not sure if that clip made any difference for you).
Yeah, the "My My My!" video had more of an impact on me than the "Bloom" video.
phoenix98 wrote:• Like "All These Years," "Lucky Escape" is another worthwhile album track I don't see mentioned enough.
I'm no stranger to appreciating unheralded deep cuts.
• Ooh..."Little Things" landing this high has certainly turned my mood around, though
No. 106 feels like a true triumph for that one! Well beyond what I would've dared to hope.
Yeah, it grew on me pretty late, but just in time to secure a half-decent ranking!
troye sivan - youth
i get you tho
Mess. I hate making typos.

Glad you appreciate those! I think it may have been your chart that prompted me to check out "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".
OMG how unlucky that "Nervous" ended up missing the Top 100 by one single spot
It's great to see "Say Something" outside the Top 100 though. It's so overrated. The album itself isn't bad, though.
Love to see a few Troye Sivan and Eurovision appearances even though including Surie seems to be a bit randon
Hope (and expect) Ariana to smash.
Yeah, if this were the cute video countdown, Shawn would be #1, though!
I didn't listen to JT's album actually.
I think I may have been drawn to the Surie song because of what happened during her performance.
We'll have to wait and see!

139. Camila Cabello - Never Be the Same: nice little pop song.
135. Justin Timberlake - Say Something (feat. Chris Stapleton): great track, doomed because of the album imo
131. Ella Mai - Trip: nice new artist
129. Liam Payne & Rita Ora - For You: good one
118. Kylie Minogue - Stop Me from Falling : a highlight of the year imo
116. Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa - One Kiss: hot!
115. Demi Lovato - Sober: loved this, despite my usual hate towards Demi
106. Allie X - Little Things: a great artist
Glad you appreciate "Lost in Japan"! It grew off of me a bit, but I think I'll always consider it one of Shawn's finest songs.
"Never Be the Same" gets a bit high vocally for me (and for Camila
) but it's not bad. I think Ella Mai is overrated, but "Trip" is easily my favourite from the songs I've heard from her.
"For You" was a grower! "One Kiss" was pretty instant. Honestly, I didn't check out "Sober" until the news broke of Demi's relapse.
Yeah, I think I have to give Allie X more attention next year. She came on late for me this year, so didn't get the love she deserved.
