55. Baptise my soul.

The retro and funky infused b side to 'I'm Outta Love' starts my countdown. This song has an interesting chorus verse structure, where it seems to merge seamlessly between the two. This showcases Ana's more soul typed vocals.

54. In Summer.

Off Anastacia's excellent (But sadly a commercial flop) 4th Album Heavy Rotation, comes the lush 'In Summer'. It shows off a lighter side to Anastasia's voice. Its an interesting song about finding love in summer :)

This song is underrated imo, it has only grown and grown on me, it stands out in her discography in a good way in my opinion, this would possibly be top 20 for me nowadays! :o A refreshing change for Anastacia. :D

53. BOOM!!

The official 2002 Fifa world cup song by Anastacia isn't massively special, but I like that it does show of Ana's vocals towards the end and its quite catchy :)

Image

52. Sexy Single

Sexy Single is a fun song from Ana's 2004 self titled album, its groovy and I guess theres not much else to say about it!!

Boom is a guilty pleasure, her voice is so amazing. 8-)

Sexy Single has a positive message that I have come to appreciate but the song has never been anywhere near a fave from her.

OOPPS. My Uni exams and such made me COMPLETELY forget about this!!!!

51. You give love a bad name.

Image

SHOT THROUGH THE HEART AND YOU'RE TO BLAME, DARLIN' YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME

This was MUCH higher on my 2013 top 40 but the new Album has shaken things up ;)

I really like this Bon Jovi cover from 'Its a man's world'. I like the original as well, and I think that this was one of the few songs on the album that actually changed the arrangement of the original song which I like. Ana's voice works well here :D

I keep forgetting this countdown!

50. Wishing Well

Image

Wishing well is a more relaxed Anastacia song, its got a bit of a summerish feeling to it. I've often thought that this sounds like a 'concluding' track and that it should have been the last song on the album!

49 I Don‘t Want To Be the One

Image

I don't want to be the one, is the first song off Anastasia's latest album Resurrection to grace my chart. IDWTBTO is a highly emotional song, which Anastacia has suggested is partially about not wanting to end her relationship with her fans. The minimal production really showcases Ana's vocals which convey huge amounts of emotion.

You give love a bad name is the best song yet, love the original, love the cover :)
Sexy Single is also a nice song :)
and In Summer is sweet

Aww Wishing Well takes me back, it's lovely but not among her best so I'm fine with it's position.

I Don‘t Want To Be the One is one of my faves from the new album, it seems relatively underrated imo.

48. Twisted Girl

Image

Twisted Girl is the B side from Sick and Tired and a different song for Anastacia I always thought. I think its catchy and also quite underrated!!

47. Beautiful Messed Up World

Image

Beautiful messed up world is the opening track on my copy of Heavy Rotation (The US addition). I enjoy this song as it has a very retro vibe and its just an awesome song. Heavy Rotation was badly received but Anastacia sounded pretty damn right for this track!

Never liked Twisted Girl at all tbh. Beautiful Messed Up World is so good, so catchy, so positive, it's just so feel-good and her voice as always is top notch.

46. Freak of Nature

Image

Freak of nature is the title track from Anastasia's second album. It is a really funky, sassy song that basically represents everything about Ana. Its a great song and really fun!

45. Dream on

Image

Anastacia's cover of Dream On appears on her covers album 'Its a Man's World'. This one really showcases Ana's vocals and its quite haunting. I love it! She's done some pretty spectacular live performances of this one!
