    I am trying to end both my countdowns at the same time in case you are wondering what the dump of all these at once is about.

    Bubbling Under:

    Almost forgot to wrap up the bubbling under artists! These are the ones who just missed the top 100. Poor them :(

    Sorry for not commenting. But I was stalking following.
    Kudos for the great, great graphics. Are you bored at work?
    Will certainly (try to) comment! [#Dead at Josh Gracin!]

    LOL, thank you - yah it is slow though honestly, a little burned out from doing the two countdowns at once, so I am looking forward to both being done, even though I enjoyed the process.

    I was wondering if you'd have a reaction to Josh And I bet you thought Sam Hunt would be my highest ranked country artist ;)

    CeeLo Green/Gnarls Barkley - the rape sullied his reputation for me, but "Crazy" is one of my all-time favourite songs. It's so chill, but mysterious and brilliant all the same.

    Green Day - solid singles. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" might just be the best thing they've done.

    Katy Perry - the best two songs on her most recent LPs - "Walking on Air" and "Roulette" - were relegated to album track status, so Katy hasn't done the best job as of late with single selection, but as one of the preeminent pop stars from 2008 to now, I have to admit that she has a collection of insanely catchy songs. Her brand of pop is more straightforward and digestible than, say, Gaga's, but for five years she achieved phenomenal chart success with her hits, and I hope the GP starts to embrace her again. She really is one of the best pop females in the game, even if she is a tad basic sometimes.

    Shania Twain - would be much higher for me. So many gems to her name, singles and non-singles alike!

    P!nk - the surviving pop star of the early noughties! Who would have thought it'd be P!nk of all people? She has been so consistent with the quality of her output...until Beautiful Trauma rolled in, and she's definitely one of my favourite acts of all-time. I think she'd be a few spaces higher, but this is a fairly appropriate ranking for her, in my opinion. Her best song is probably "Who Knew".

    Christina Aguilera - thoroughly underrated by the GP these days! Phenomenal singer, with a proven track record of excellence across many genres. She's not afraid to take risks with her music, and she can launch a ballad into the stratosphere like none of the other post-90s female stars. "Beautiful" has saved many lives, I'm sure, but she has a tonne of gems, and I just hope she continues recording great music because there's still more brilliance in her to share with us. It's clear to see I'm a massive fan, and would probably have her about 10 places higher.

    Shakira - I think "Trap" is her best single since "Hips Don't Lie".

    Lily Allen - great lyricist.

    Ariana Grande - my inner lamb wants to say something about her being this much higher than MC, but "God Is a Woman" has effectively silenced any criticisms I have of the young star for a while. She is a huge talent!

    Jason Mraz - have you heard "Have It All"? It's brilliant.

    Nicki Minaj - when she gets it right ("Monster", "Bottoms Up") there simply isn't a better female rapper alive or deceased.

    Janelle Mone - I just recently started to embrace her, and what a wonder that has been hidden from me for so long. I think I love her as a person more than I do as a musician, but she gets an A+ in both departments really.

    Maroon 5 - I feel like they always come back from the dead with a bop that reminds me that they've not yet disbanded.

    I guess I'm a little embarrassed by how highly she ranks, but that just speaks to her ability to craft an earworm. I was all in with her with the first album, and then Teenage Dream started out strong, but that era went on for so long, I was just so done with her by the time it was over. I think the GP needed a break from her and now I don't think her brand of music is in favor

    Unfortunately, her success on my chart is confined to the 90s. But I do lik her, and I think if I was using a different metric other than my own chart, she'd probably do better.

    Who Knew did quite well on my chart - it felt kind of like a comeback single for her on my chart iif that makes sense - she had been missing for a little while until that one popped up. I still love There You Go.

    I hope we are not done with her either - I wish she hadn't gone away from the public eye for so long (singing-wise) because I think people just forgot about her - it's so strange how The Voice rejuvenated Adam's career, but not hers. Will always love her though.

    I know, poor Mimi, though most of Mimi's work pre-dates my chart, whereas Ariana has been everywhere the last four years. I love God is a Woman and it probably will propel her past Janelle for the time being Right now the spots in 20-14 are very close so in the coming weeks might be quite fluid. But Ariana is almost guaranteed to make top 10 eventually.

    I can't say enough good things about her - I watched a video on youtube where she was interviewed about Dirty Computer, and she just had so much poise and knew exactly how to structure her words to completely describe her thoughs. Her activism, her personal struggles, her craft - she was just so eloquent. I am glad she has gotten more attention with her latest. I hope people continue to embrace her. .
